Speaking Engagements 

As a leadership and training consultant, Scott has been standing in front of large audiences and making words come out of his face for over 20 years.  He's even been featured on Good Morning America.  His workshops and speeches are known to be authentic, engaging and entertaining.  He has a way of making everyday stories come to life by adding humor, sentiment, and just enough science to show you he's done his homework. 

Though Scott connects with any audience, he is especially drawn to those who are stressed out, anxious, and searching for more.  So, whether your audience is 3 people or 3,000, he is sure to encourage listeners to find their own worth and hear the call to greater purpose in their lives.  Contact us today to book Scott for your next conference keynote, workshop, retreat, or church event.

Scott’s speaking topics include:

  • Freedom From Stuff: Christian Living in a Consumer Culture
  • Freedom From Fear: Everyday Mission and the Accidental Missionary
  • Finding Your Freedom:  Developing Your Personal Mission Statement
  • Busy Is A Sickness
  • Building Your Legacy
  • The Power of Prayer

Yes.  You may have noticed we run ads on this site.  Which seems to contradict our philosophy that encourages people to "own what they have." Rather than miss out on a golden opportunity, we decided to use the power of consumerism for good, and donate every last penny of ad revenue to charity.  So, if you see an interesting ad, please check it out.  Every time you click, an angel gets its wings (and a hungry person gets fed). But please don't really buy stuff unless you truly need it. ;-)

And, if you have a product you would like to promote, have read a bunch of our stuff, and believe your values align with ours, please contact us.  We sometimes do product giveaways for our loyal readers, and love to support folks who are putting out positive vibes to the world.
