Scott enjoys talking to high school and college students, athletes and professionals about life, family, career, responsibility and the importance (and dangers) of social media in society.
His direct and to-the-point social media presentation runs 60-90 minutes and emphasizes a key message throughout — you represent yourself, your family, your school and the company that will eventually hire you.

During the presentation, Scott looks at the good and bad of social media and covers the following topics and more:
