Scott Anderson, Keynote Speaker
Scott, by all accounts, should not be happy about his life. Scott was born with cerebral palsy, and has been in a wheelchair for most of his life. His home life in his early years wasn’t much better with multiple divorces, domestic violence, suicide, and drug use occurring in his home. Looking back on his life, Scott should have been bitter, angry, disgusted at life, and given up. But this is not Scott.
Instead of letting his past and present circumstances control his life, Scott has learned to embrace his life and use each of life’s challenges as a springboard to help others. Through a positive outlook, tenacity, and above all, a deep faith in Jesus, he has overcome a lifetime of barriers to become a dynamic speaker.
Scott uses a unique blend of humor, life experiences, multi-media, and deep insights to guide people to experience a great life despite their circumstances. Scott has spoken all over the United States and in over 25 countries at public schools, churches, conventions, rallies, business meetings, government functions, and even to the Chinese Army in Beijing, China. Scott has also shared the stage with Hollywood stars such as Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Grand, Henry Pool Was Here), Ron Rifkin (TV’s Alias, Boiler Room, Keeping the Faith), and David Hasselhoff (Knight Rider, Baywatch, America’s Got Talent).
Scott currently lives in San Diego, CA with his wife, Sara, and four foster/adopted children -- two of which have special needs.
