What Others Are Saying About Scott's Presentations

"Your presentation was given to a packed house of students, alumni and even a handful of professionals that you have worked with in the past. The presentation was honest, lighthearted and colorful from experiences throughout your career. Possibly even more important though, you provided specific examples of things to do and not to do to break into the industry, this proved to be insightful to students and recent alumni. I didn't see a cell phone picked up throughout the entire event"

"We would welcome having you come back to speak with our students and found the event to be very beneficial!"
