What they say about Scott Jurek:


Scott has an amazing story. His accomplishments are incredible, but the way he is able to weave in some of his life lessons really hit home with the group. I was impressed how his message impacted the group regardless if they were runners or athletes. One message that I found particularly impactful and it resonated the whole week for the group was the message of taking yourself out comfort zone. Everyone was able to connect with his story and many people noted it was a highlight of the week. Personally, I had a chance to talk to Scott before and after the presentation. He is obviously a world class athlete, but he could not be a nicer or more conscientious person.

I had Scott speak to my team as we were undertaking unprecedented new challenges in our business and our industry. I wanted to challenge my team on what’s possible and how to adapt and overcome, which perfectly aligned with the professional and personal examples that Scott shared. Scott has a unique talent to relate some of the world’s most impressive endurance accomplishments with real life challenges we face in a business environment. I took a different approach to finding a speaker for my organization which was not only very effective, but one my staff still references years later. I’m looking forward to having Scott join my team again soon!
