If you want a speaker that makes your people feel motivated after the speech, there are a number of speakers out there to choose from. But if you want your team to be motivated and also hear someone that’s inspirational, thought-provoking, and behavior-changing then Scott Fedor is your choice. His heartfelt conversation about focusing on what we can control, hard work, maintaining a positive attitude, and not losing sight of the inches that are all around us made an incredible impact on my team. Scott has a unique ability to connect with a wide group of people, and I know my staff will be talking about his message for years to come.

Scott’s ability to relate to and engage a diverse group of persons was in evidence, as he tackled tough issues and inspired and motivated those in attendance. Calls for his return started as soon as he departed. It is amazing the profound effect that Scott’s openness, humor, and easy way about him have on people. In today’s world, where a speech such as this could easily be dismissed as just another speech, Scott “hit a nerve” with people, earned their respect and has become a role model for many – not bad for a little over an hour!

Scott’s presentation was moving and powerful. He has an eloquent and captivating way of telling his miraculous story with a combination of humor, faith and gratitude. His words are inspirational to everyone who has the pleasure of hearing him speak. One of my students told me it was his favorite assembly he’d ever been to at St. Bernadette!

Scott Fedor presented a powerful talk to our middle school students during our Positive Direction program. He shared his story with absolute honesty, describing the hardships and disappointments that have occurred since his accident, but doing so in a way that left the students feeling uplifted. He used terrific humor in his talk and above all taught the children the importance of perseverance, strength and faith. I am certain that his talk will have a lasting impact on everyone who heard it. Having Scott Fedor as part of our program was truly a gift.

As Scott was sharing his story at our school, the students were mesmerized listening to him. What a story of resilience and perseverance. There was laughter and even a few tears. Our students were able to take from the presentation motivation to triumph through trials in their life. I highly recommend having Scott share with your students how, ‘inch by inch is a cinch. But yard by yard is very hard’. After hearing him, our students believe they too can accomplish anything they set their minds to do.

Scott honored us at our company meeting with a deeply moving, heartfelt look into his incredible journey of living the exhilarating life of a thrill seeking young professional, through then having that idyllic life all change in a split second, to that of his having to deal with, what can only be termed as these almost unfathomable lows, to then the remarkable accomplishments he’s made to get back to where he is today after enduring so much to get there. He made us all acutely aware of his resolute commitment to climb back up to where his life is today, what is now his new, ‘normal’, and he did so in a riveting manner that showed us all that a life lived in faith is a life worth living.

Scott’s speech was the perfect fit for our Honors Program Presentation. He conveyed to students and their guests the importance of education and perseverance. His inspiring personal story showed students that just because your life drastically changes, it is far from over.

Scott Fedor is a man of action even though he is a quadriplegic survivor of an unfortunate accident. His ability to overcome his physical limitations and share his enthusiasm for life is a beautiful example of the depth of his faith in God. By sharing his story he brings to his audience a clear message that challenges need not be stumbling blocks, but rather stepping stones to a greater depth of inner peace and joy. Listening to Scott is truly inspirational.

As part of the team that cared for Scott during the early days of his injury, having him speak at our medical conference was a special privilege that we as healthcare providers don’t often have the chance to experience. His words are engaging and the personal recount of his incredible life journey, before, during and after his accident, provide a unique and fascinating presentation style. Bringing to light his perspective as a patient with his ability to uphold grace, humility, dignity and even humor, was invaluable to us as caregivers.

I sat in the audience at the ADA25 event and listened to Scott’s keynote speech and just want to say that what an impressive and insightful speech was delivered. There were a lot of speeches, proclamations and comments about the ADA and its impact on lives and lifestyles by a variety of speakers from persons with disabilities to politicians and the like. However, Scott’s comments were straightforward, direct, inspiring and from the heart. I don’t and won’t remember much about what was said by many speakers, but to hear Scott describe in detail that “Attitude is Altitude” and “Inch by Inch Is a Cinch, But Yard by Yard Is Very Hard” will stay with me for a long time.

Scott Fedor provided our wellness program with an inspiring and powerful presentation that was everything I was hoping for and more. Every employee who was lucky enough to hear Scott’s message was profoundly moved and left with a different perspective on life and adversity. The goal of every speaker should be leaving your audience with wanting more and Scott accomplished that unlike almost anyone I have experienced.

Scott has a wonderful message of hope and healing. We could have listened to him share his story all day long. We were totally engaged, moved by his story, faith, and determined spirit. Despite the many hurdles he faces every day, he sees his paralysis as a blessing. Clearly, God has called Scott to share that blessing with others. He helps his audience to see the challenges of life through a new lens, a lens which puts it all into perspective and reminds us that we ‘can do all things through Him who strengthens us’ (Phil 4:13).
