An organization’s success relies on the full contribution and productivity of every employee. Achieving optimal results for your organization demands the complete engagement of diverse perspectives representing your marketplace and workforce. Engaged teams are the lifeblood of successful organizations; they produce results that far exceed the sum of individual capacities.
Your influence over yourself determines your fitness, whether you take action or procrastinate, and whether you emerge as a victor or a victim. Your influence over others determines your effectiveness as a partner, businessperson, and leader. Influence is the ultimate skill in achieving overwhelming success.

In an uncertain and changing global marketplace, what provides the real competitive advantage for your company? What type of professional development tools and skills will your employees need to ensure your company will not only survive but thrive?
Our deepest fear is not that we may be inadequate; rather, it is that we may be more powerful than we ever imagined. Nick Scott explains this profound truth, helping your people understand that it is the light within each of us, not the darkness, that we so often turn from in fear. That is tragic because pretending to be smaller than we are does not benefit your company, and it does not serve the world.
From the time we were children, we were all meant to shine. Nick will encourage every member of your organization to let their own light shine because in doing so, they give others permission to shine as well. This important message will liberate audience members from their fears, teach them how to recover quickly from mistakes and failures, and equip them to finish the race as stronger and wiser people. Nick will let your organization know that it is possible to triumph in tough times—as long as we view obstacles as opportunities and harness the incredible strength within us.
It’s easy to spot a winning organization. Just look for the company that fully engages its employees’ minds, hearts, and strengths, and you will find a workforce that is both building value every day and leaving the competition behind.

Nick Scott is the epitome of planning and execution. From the day the spark ignited inside Nick’s soul, his amazing will to succeed proves to all he can and will meet goals. Nick Scott paves the way for wheelchair athletes who want a chance to become professional, sponsored athletes in the world of bodybuilding. Before Nick, there was no such achievement anywhere in sports or athletics. Nick decided to open that door himself and through his careful planning and the execution of those plans, Nick is now a sponsored professional athlete, who models, competes, and speaks for those sponsors worldwide. Nick continues his education after earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration.

Personal growth is a goal Nick Scott continues to achieve with each life event he pursues. Never has Nick allowed a goal to slip away because he was afraid or someone said he could not do it.

He brings the tools and skills to audiences who need to focus on achievement in the face of the unknown. Corporate growth is frightening as the recession slowly slips to the past and decisions continue to see the past as a way to the future. Nick, through his life experience, encourages groups to adopt changes knowing the fear will spur them forward, not bring them to a stop.
