Summit Team Building

Scott is an engaging and authentic leadership expert. His unique ability to share real life experiences combined with his academic expertise provides a powerful and meaningful keynote presentation. He takes the time to to understand your corporate objectives and tailors his delivery in a relevant format that has lasting impact on all of those in attendance. He engages and challenges the audience in such a way that leaves them really thinking about their leadership approach. I would highly recommend him for any organization that is looking for more 'meat on the bone' when considering a keynote speaker.

Scott Kress is a noted speaker, author, team building expert, former MBA Professor and leadership consultant, helping organizations turn their teams and leaders into passionate achievers.

What sets Scott apart is his ability to scale mountains.

He has skied 1000km unsupported to the South Pole and guided a team of wounded soldiers to the magnetic North Pole.

When Scott engages his audiences with audacious tales of his Everest climb where challenge and change were abundant, and seamlessly ties that into reaching ones professional and personal goals, one can’t help but listen. Scott demonstrates that the tools he uses to find success in the mountains are the same tools that each member of the audience can start to use in their workplace.

Scott’s presentations are high-energy, engaging and passionate but most importantly they are relevant to the challenges faced by organizations and their teams today, as each presentation is custom designed to meet your needs. Topic areas include; team building, trust, change, goal setting, leadership, overcoming challenge, perseverance, planning team culture, conflict, and more.

Add a book to your keynote

More than just a motivational story, the book includes real tools, techniques and models that people can apply to their lives. Everest is the story, but personal, professional, team, and leadership development is the objective.
