“Scott, thank you so much for joining our SMB Summit last week.  Your powerful presentation was one of the highest rated and most impactful of the event.  Everyone was moved by your story and inspired by your message.  From the team at JP Morgan Chase, I wanted to share our appreciation.  You are an amazing person.  We hope to find another opportunity to hear from you again in the future.”

“I was preparing for an upcoming conference agenda for my department, and I wanted to finish on a high note that would tie an inspirational message together with some of the business themes we have been experiencing.  In talking with Scott, he quickly understood the nature of our business and some of the opportunities and challenges we were facing and was able to relate that back to his experience recovering from his accident.  We had a great conference, but Scott was undoubtedly the highlight as he absolutely captivated the audience and got several standing ovations.  I can’t recommend Scott highly enough if you are looking for someone who can motivate your team and help relate your company’s challenges with those he has faced.  Truly one of the best speakers I have had the pleasure of working with or listening to.”
