 Scott Burrows Biography

If you are searching for a powerful, engaging and thought-provoking motivational keynote speaker who can set the tone for your entire conference and challenge your audience while adding takeaway value with high energy, humor and substance — or a closing speaker who can inspire and move your conference attendees into action — put Scott Burrows at the top of your list!

Burrows' story is the hero's journey. By the age of 19, he played college football at Florida State University as a walk-on wide receiver for legendary coach Bobby Bowden and was a top-ranked kick-boxing Black Belt champion whose last fight was broadcast by ESPN. During that time, Burrows' life changed dramatically on November 3, 1984, he survived a horrendous automobile accident as a passenger in a friend's car and broke cervical 6 and 7 vertebrae in his neck that left him paralyzed from the chest down and diagnosed a quadriplegic. Told he would be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life, Burrows realized his split-second decision to not wear a seat belt altered his course forever.

Despite his grim diagnosis, Burrows refused to be sidelined. After graduating from college, Burrows' first career was as a Financial Advisor in the Insurance and Financial Industry for Northwestern Mutual. He specialized in life and disability insurance planning as well as retirement, estate and wealth planning. In his 5th year, he hit a huge goal and qualified for the prestigious Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT), the Premiere Association of Financial Professionals, which is a 100% commission-driven sales production award that fewer than 8% of his peers qualify for annually from more than 500 companies in 70 countries.

At the pinnacle of that career, Burrows experienced yet another setback, a second automobile accident. Although he was buckled in this time, new injuries forced him to RE-evaluate, RE-invent and once again RE-ignite his life by practicing and executing what he preaches. During his recovery, Burrows reminisced about the overcoming adversity speakers he heard at sales and leadership conferences. Their life-changing stories inspire you to chase your dreams regardless of obstacles or barriers. That's when Burrows decided he would make the tough decision to leave an industry he had so much passion for to pursue a speaking career that has taken him around the world. He also took advantage of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help expand his brother's multimillion-dollar golf course fertilizer, chemical and equipment business into Southeast Asia.

Burrows is also the author of Vision Mindset Grit! In the Foreword, Burrows' father defined those three empowering words: Vision refers to your goals and aspirations, the endpoint you are seeking. Mindset is the continual mental preparation and adjustment needed to meet oncoming challenges. Grit is the day-to-day determination to persevere when you are too tired, too sore or too beleaguered to continue on.

Burrows has delivered his story in 45 states and in such countries as Australia, Spain, India, Thailand, Bermuda, Costa Rica, Mexico, the Czech Republic and Canada, as well as to our soldiers at the Minot Air Force Base.

  • Stand Up To Your Challenges

    Our world is changing at the fastest rate in human history. Maintaining the status quo is fraught with danger. Others in your ultra-competitive industry could be passing you by. Creating break-through opportunities for your organization and achieving extraordinary results as a team and as leaders is all about how you respond to circumstances. Finding solutions to help your team rise above the competition means being willing to stretch beyond self-perceived limitations, persevere and stand up to challenges. This dynamic and uplifting keynote presentation will entertain, educate and inspire your attendees to view their challenges from a different perspective. Using his unique concepts of vision, mindset and grit, Scott will teach your organization tangible actions you can implement to be more productive, thrive and beat the odds. Scott will inspire your attendees to rethink their own possibilities and he will challenge them to set aggressive mind-stretching goals which will impact the bottom line of your business beneficially. Key Themes
    • Vision: is one of the greatest tools we have in life. It’s free, it costs nothing and it can bring everything.
    • Mindset: is focusing on what you can control, such as your level of optimism, your attitude and the positives of any situation. Mindset is staying true to your goals and business plan and making adjustments along the way as circumstances change.
    • Grit: is your willingness to be resilient, to maintain your poise and execution across all time horizons—this day, this week, this quarter, this year knowing nothing worth achieving ever comes too easily. It’s your willingness to fail and your unwillingness to quit.

  • Vision, Mindset, Grit

    Because we live in a world that revolves around change, stress and setbacks, learning how to conquer these challenges by having a positive attitude and strong belief system is essential for life balance, success and fulfillment. Given that most industries are trying to keep up with industry trends, new technologies and the changing dynamics of their industry, it’s important to continually educate ourselves on how we can support each other and maintain a positive outlook and work/life balance. Throughout this presentation, Scott draws upon three words: vision, mindset and grit—three words when put into action are powerful enough to become part of your organizational strategy. These words will inspire and motivate your people to shape new beliefs, be more productive and let no circumstances take precedence over the power of the human spirit, personally and professionally! Using his physical paralysis as a visual metaphor, Scott will show your organization how to drive personal and business results by maintaining poise and execution. His experience will help you develop cutting-edge ideas, as well as leadership strategies that you can utilize to achieve bottom line results. Attendees will learn how to apply Scott’s concepts to help them:
    • Explore unlimited vision
    • Transform their focus by adapting and becoming more flexible
    • View adversity as an opportunity to grow and set loftier goals Take Responsibility: Using Vision, Mindset & Grit to Achieve Success Does your organization have a culture of accountability? How much more productive would your organization be if everyone held themselves accountable? During this presentation, Scott’s eloquent and entertaining storytelling brings the theme of taking responsibility to life, and demonstrates how vision, mindset and grit can become a viable part of your organizational strategy. Scott teaches how these concepts can help you tackle ongoing challenges and changes by promoting a path of business growth resulting in faster than expected and even unprecedented outcomes. Learn how to apply these concepts to your personal and professional life and how taking accountability can help your organization achieve greater heights of success and prosperity.

  • Realign Your Mindset

    Transform Your Results In today’s competitive environment, organizations should consider responding to market challenges by increasing innovation as a means to personal and business success. Innovation can happen anywhere at any time. During this powerful message, Scott shows how by creating focus and clarity through vision, mindset and grit, your innovation agility can be inspired and your results transformed.
