Here are just a few comments on Scott:
I have known Scott for over 25 years and it’s only been in the last couple years that I have been exposed to his skill as a public speaker. In that short time, his skills have magnified exponentially. Exposure to such progress has been first hand due to our mutual Toastmasters experience.
As the old saying goes, “Nothing sells like sincerity and if you can fake that, you’ve really got something.” Faking it isn’t necessary for Scott as he is incapable of anything but sincerity. Simply being Scott gets the attention of the audience immediately and powerfully. His style is low key, conversational and spontaneous thus relating to audiences on their level because his delivery is always with them, not at them.
Command of well-timed pauses is Scott’s hallmark. It draws in the listener begging the question, “What’s next?” His subject matter choices are pertinent to the recipient’s concerns and he rarely relies on notes. This only adds to his emotion evoking delivery.
It would be easy to write pages about Scott and his expanding speaking abilities but it suffices to say, Scott Hammond is an excellent speaker who continues to get better with each performance.
Scott — quite simply — is empowering.
He and I have been close friends for more than 20 years and I have seen what he can do for others – as well as for me.
He combines a strong sense of values, beliefs, passion, and practical steps into an inspiring presentation that gives people hope – and direction. He helps his audiences come alive with practical, motivational tools couched in an extremely personable and warm speaking style, that make you WANT to listen longer.
Sincerely, Scott “Q” Marcus
THINspirational Speaker • Recovering Perfectionist
For the past six years I have known and worked with Scott Hammond. We’ve been through a few rough times together. I feel I know him at a deep level.
Scott is a person of quality. He is caring, truly so, not just words but deeds. He is passionate, about his family, his work and his beliefs. And he is principled, morale, a person of high-mindedness. The combination of these characteristic traits makes for a unique individual. When Scott speaks it is from the heart, from adversity overcome, and from a keen vision of how people operate in the world.
These are the values that Scott brings to anything he does, whether it’s his speaking, his training or even if he’s helping you pull your truck out of a ditch.
I’m proud to call Scott a dear friend.
