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

Scott Harris has come back from the dead. His story is both compelling and inspiring.

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.

What Parents Should Know About Concussion

As a kid, I loved watching AFL players go in hard at the ball because that meant one thing – they were tough.

The Injured Brain

Although I have achieved so much since my near-fatal accident in 2008 and it may appear to some that my brain injury is an all but distant memory, that is...

It’s Christmas and the tree finally went up! Most of the presents are bought and wrapped thanks to @jasminelabrie so all we have to do now is enjoy the season! Merry Christmas everyone and I hope everyone has a great summer! I just spoke to a great bunch of year 9 students @aquinascollege, about achieving great things in life! We would be blown away if we knew, deep down, what we were truely capable of. Nothing great was never achieved in someone’s comfort zone! • Speaking is what I do and goals are my bread and butter. I motivate students to aspire for something big through goals! In the middle of nowhere, 20k’s from nothing, down into the valley and over the bridge, we found this special little gem. From the heart of Montana, I present to you... GREAT FALLS!!! Really... there’s not much to say about this place beside our car broke down and the people thought our Australian accents were funny... y’all. If you’re ever in that neck of the woods be sure to drop in and be laughed at by the locals. • Traveling the world solo with a traumatic brain injury was pretty damn hard b Somebody once told me that the best Christmas present you can buy for someone is a book! Get your copy of ‘Crashing Into Potential: Living with my injured brain’, today, and I guarantee you’ll make your mum a happy lady! (If you buy it now, you can have a cheeky ready before you give it to her!!!!) A great opportunity today to speak to the Frankston Morning Peninsula Learning LEN, thanks to Jo Posser. I loved connecting with you all and looking forward to working with many of you in the future! • Speaking is what I do and goals are my bread and butter. I motivate students to aspire for something big through goals! Great event with Caroline Chisholm Catholic College. #RYDA. As we grow up the choices we make can impact our lives. Today, the message was about stopping to think about those choices and the way in which they will have an impact! • Speaking is what I do and goals are my bread and butter. I motivate students to aspire for something big through goals!
