About Keynote Speaker Scottie Madden

About Scottie Madden:

Scottie’s articulate and insightful perspective shines new light on the concept of leadership. Her deeply personal journey told with unflinching clarity, inspiring courage, and engaging humor, makes her story a must-see. Audiences are astounded to learn firsthand how a true leader navigates monumental life change while never sacrificing her mission, her crews or herself.

Scottie Jeanette, born Scott James, didn’t make it easy on herself. Like many late-stage trans women, Scottie had made one helluva guy; husband of 26 years, the only son, the big brother and legendary adventurer uncle. Everything in her life screamed “Alpha Male.” With over 30 years in the television production trenches, no one would guess that Scottie, a top survival showrunner respected for leading über-male productions into the most dangerous jungles, glaciers and deserts the world over while she was simultaneously locked in a lifelong battle for her soul. All anyone did know was that Scottie, who rose through the technical ranks as camera operator and editor, brought a front line experience to her work. Networks counted on Scottie to bring her crews, and their reputation home safely without sacrificing the story.

And… she put ALL this, plus a marriage of 26 years on the line when she wrote “Getting Back To Me” from girl to boy to woman in just fifty years, and left behind “white male privilege” to embrace truth, grace and womanhood. Her gut-wrenching journey of love, acceptance and honesty became the ultimate survival show.

Scottie shook off fifty years of family & society expectations and her own fear to dismantle the walls of a self-imposed prison and charted the way back from denial to acceptance, from fear to courage, to be herself – following her own rules, succeeding on her own terms.
