Speaking | Scott B Harris


For over eight years, Scott has been to learning how to be resilient.

From the moment he woke up from a coma, Scott had to make a choice – he had to decide which road to walk down after his life was changed forever. The choice he made back then has taught him the true meaning of resilience.

To overcome adversity, Scott had to have the right mindset and persistence to achieve his goals. Since then, Scott has dedicated himself to inspiring others to be resilient and achieve their goals in life.

"From Scott's speech, it has really made me appreciate what I have in my life and to look at things in a more positive way, as there are some people in the world who are suffering from many things. He has also encouraged me to go out of my comfort zone and that I am capable of achieving my dreams."

I admire Scott’s authenticity and his courage to share his story. The lessons he shared with us today have a direct connection to where we are as a team and as a business, and the importance of having that growth mindset. His presentation has had a profound impact on me personally and the team today as well. He really took us on a journey and stripped himself bare in terms of where he’s come from what he’s learned along the way. What a brilliant presentation.

I found Scott’s presentation inspiring, uplifting and his use of humour was both unexpected (given the gravity of the situation) and very clever. His professionalism and the warmth with which he communicated with the audience were excellent. I loved the way he shared his story and my experience was of being touched, moved and inspired. Scott you have a very powerful message and one that makes a difference

Mesmerizing from the start to the end, Scott is a storyteller of the highest order. His journey is raw and inspiring refusing to shy away from the topics that can upset people, I would highly recommend Scott to speak at any event you are having

- Ayden Shaw, Sport and Recreation Manager

Scott’s keynote was presented very well. I found it very motivational, and Scott’s message to keep having a go no matter what resonated well with the entire room. A good measurement of a successful presentation is the number of questions the audience feels they can ask, and the strong engagement in question time really showed us that.

- Mark Taylor, Chief Executive Officer
ACE Radio

Thank you so much. I won't ever forget today and will always remember you. You are a wonderfully talented presenter. Well done and keep up the great work. All the best to you and your family.  I feel privileged enough to have met you and appreciated you opening up to us. I'll continue to follow you on social media.

An important lesson I have learned from my journey – a journey I hope you’ll never have to take – is about mindset.

Had a great time talking to the mob at Skillinvest on Monday! Remember, we need to take responsibility for the choices we make! • Speaking is what I do and goals are my bread and butter. I motivate students to aspire for something big through goals! Yesterday I had the absolute please presenting to this youth group at Skillinvest. The message was, “Don’t Give Up”. You guys can achieve anything you want, the first thing you need to do is believe!
