About Keynote Speaker Scott Burrows

About Speaker Scott Burrows…

Scott’s story is a hero’s journey. By the age of 19, he played college football at Florida State University for legendary coach Bobby Bowden and was a top-ranked kick-boxing Black Belt champion whose last fight was broadcast by ESPN. Scott’s life changed dramatically on November 3, 1984, when he survived a horrendous automobile accident as a passenger in a friend’s car that left him paralyzed from the chest down and diagnosed a quadriplegic. Told he would be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life, Scott realized his split-second decision to not wear a seat belt had altered his course forever.

Despite his grim diagnosis, Scott refused to be sidelined. After graduating from college, Scott’s first career was as a Financial Advisor in the Insurance and Financial Industry, specializing in life and disability insurance and retirement, estate and wealth planning. In his 5th year, he qualified for the prestigious Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT), the Premiere Association of Financial Professionals, which is a 100% commission-driven sales production award that fewer than 8% of his peers qualify for annually from more than 500 companies in 70 countries.

At the pinnacle of that career, Scott experienced another setback, a second automobile accident. New injuries forced him to RE-evaluate, RE-invent and once again RE-ignite his life by practicing and executing what he preaches. That’s when Scott decided he would make the tough decision to leave an industry he had so much passion for to share his deeply personal experience and pursue a speaking career that has taken him around the world. 

Scott has delivered his inspiring and motivating story in 45 states as well as Australia, Spain, India, Thailand, Bermuda, Costa Rica, Mexico, Brazil, the Czech Republic and Canada, as well as to our soldiers at the Minot Air Force Base.

Scott is also the author of Vision, Mindset, Grit! Vision refers to your goals and aspirations, the endpoint you are seeking. Mindset is the continual mental preparation and adjustment needed to meet oncoming challenges. Grit is the day-to-day determination to persevere when you are too tired, too sore or too beleaguered to continue on.

Testimonials

“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 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.”

James Ford

“Spellbound, entertained and inspired are just a few of the words that immediately come to mind when thinking of Scott Burrows and the impact he has with audiences. Focused on making sure his message is received to positively influence, challenge and add value to each audience member is Scott’s goal. I’ve had the privilege of hearing most of the domestic and international’s best and Scott Burrows is among the elite regardless of the ages in his audience, he delivers with incredible style. Standing ovations are great, but Scott is focused more on what each person is inspired to do when they walk out. More interested in “engagement” than entertainment, Scott Burrows delivers.”

Raoul Quintero

“Scott’s exceptional professionalism resulted in not only a heartfelt standing ovation from all in attendance, but successfully underscored the highly important theme of how individuals can overcome obstacles even in the most extreme or unanticipated circumstances. Moreover, Scott was able to link the role of an individual in helping a forward-thinking team to become more the sum of its parts. We were all very pleased to the extent to which Scott worked in advance, to understand the themes of the event which revolved around workforce safety as well as the nature of the company’s business. His preparation thoroughly integrated our objectives into his core message. We warmly recommend the motivational, dramatic and effective presentation of Scott Burrows.”

“Scott brings the fundamentals of service excellence to life. He is a person who lived a nightmare and emerged with life lessons that inspire us all. He speaks eloquently and passionately about family who supported and motivated him; and healthcare professionals who looked at him as a case and those who looked at what he could accomplish with appropriate challenges and optimism. I have never seen managers lines up for 30 minutes during a break just so they would have a chance to speak with him personally. Truly remarkable.”
