After working on his mindset for many years following a life-threatening accident, Scott has discovered what it takes to climb over the walls of life.

This workshop is designed to help participants climb over the walls in their own lives. He shares with the group, the strategies to set and achieve goals, that he has used since he started rehab all those years ago.

Scott learnt from the professionals – his therapists – and when they spoke, he listened. The running thread through his recovery has been goal setting and in this workshop, participants will come to realise how important goals are to helping take on challenges and take on life.

In this workshop, students will learn:

  • How to build their own roadmap (Goal Setting)
  • How to plan their weeks for success
  • How to practice gratitude on a daily basis
  • How to stay motivated
  • The power of mindfulness and meditation

scott b harris workshop concussion


The problem we have in society today is that there is very limited information that we know about the big ‘C’ word, CONCUSSION.

What we do know is that if the right care is not taken following a hit to the head, the recovery can be prolonged for weeks, months and sometimes even years. Sports-Related Concussion (SRC) is the leading cause of concussion worldwide.

The fact is that a concussion is a form of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) as a result of a blow to the head and must be treated right. Scott is living proof that the right treatment after a TBI can go a very long way. After Scott woke from a coma, he was taken to the experts, Epworth Rehabilitation, where he spent three years learning how to recover properly. This workshop is great for anyone wanting to recover safely after a concussion – including parents, teachers, coaches and sporting clubs.

In this workshop, you will learn

  • What are the symptoms of a concussion to look out for
  • What some of these symptoms feel like
  • The world standard ‘Return to Play’ protocol

In this workshop, you will learn:

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