Entrepreneur, Productivity and Innovation Expert
Scott Armstrong (CSP) is an international speaker, emcee, published author and is recognized by his colleagues as an extraordinary visionary leader who has the uncanny knack of motivating others to inspired action. Sitting at a office desk over 20 years ago, he was deeply frustrated and knew there had to be more than pushing paper. He made the choice to go Limitless. Three years later Scott had created Canada’s largest rehabilitation centre for abandoned exotic animals –swimming with jaguars, running with wolves, playing in the snow with tigers.
How does swimming with tigers launch a 25-year speaking career? Well when you also inspire over 2000 businesses along the way then there is something special to talk about. Starting an exotic wildlife sanctuary from scratch and growing it into one of Canada’s premier environmental education centers without a single donation requires a special talent. Growing that talent and becoming Director of Entrepreneurship and Corporate Training at The British Columbia Institute of Technology requires exceptional future vision and relentless tenacity to provide sustained motivation to a diversity of audiences.
In addition, he educated over 20,000 children on endangered species and was privileged to provide ‘Make A Wish’ dreams come true for dozens of terminally ill children and adults. Scott has since spent his time showing thousands, including military personnel and professional athletes, how they can make their Limitless dreams come true. Whether as a University Professor or Director of Corporate Training at BCIT Scott has helped over 3000 individuals create their own businesses and over 2000 employees engage their next level of high performance.
Specializing in business and personal motivation for growth Scott brings a counter intuitive energy to his presentations, helping clients broaden their perspectives to otherwise concealed opportunities. He possesses a remarkable ability to understand what is truly important to his audiences.
Scott’s presence on stage, his complete professionalism, and ability to craft custom messaging in his presentations ensures:
- Attendees will feel a heightened level of enthusiasm and commitment to their work and will have free resources to ensure the momentum is maintained
- Clients will experience seamless integration of Scott into their conference with logistical items and timely promotional materials
- Scott will talk with organizers and attendees to ensure his knowledge of the audience and their needs radiates through his presentation

Is it passion? A sound business model? A sustainable market?

Ask him – he developed Canada’s largest exotic wildlife refuge and spent his working days playing with wolves and rehabilitating tigers. A published entrepreneurial author, Scott will share his top 20 tips to effectively motivate, inspire and coach entrepreneurs from all walks of life. Transformational, and inspiring are what audiences consistently call Scott’s keynote. Your conference organizers will thank you.
Habitudes –a word not heard very often but one that is the core of every action, success or failure, taken. In short, we become what we think. The perspective, the framing that you wrap around a circumstance is the key determinant in what happiness, indifference, success or pain you will experience.
Habitudes, the partnering of our attitudes and habits, generates the experiences and results we get in all aspects of our lives. And the incredibly empowering fact is we can choose what we want! Imagine the differences experienced if our initial thoughts looked for opportunities, not deficits; innovation instead of routine; efficiency not confusion. High Performance Habitudes provide incredible life-long benefits to your career, finances, health and relationships.
Through inspirational and entertaining stories, this value-packed keynote will deliver:
- Techniques to allow participants to consistently change their mindsets to a high-yield state
- The three top High Performance Habitudes creating success and action steps to use them immediately
- A life-long desire to optimize the linkage between attitudes, habits and results
- Unrestricted access to the Limitless on-line course to grow participants use of High Performance Habitudes in their daily work and personal lives

Vancouver, British Columbia
After losing his wife, Wil is looking for a fresh start with his daughter in the remote west coast town of Prince Sound. But TRUE COST, a mobile computer app he creates to help his daughter at school gives him anything but. Steph is a chemical engineer and heads a multi million dollar firm in Toronto, specializing in fracking in the oil patch. The unexpected death of her only brother gives her something she never wanted – a child to care for and a challenge to her values. Wil and Steph’s geographical and ideological chasms begin to evaporate as they are plunged into a the most powerful game of corporate espionage the world has ever seen. TRUE COST is a blessing and an apocalypse. It evaluates products world wide on health, labour and environmental criteria, and goes unexpectedly viral. Soon Prince Sound, and then the world, are changing what they purchase, and what they don’t. Such a shift creates a tsunami of attention, as well as powerful enemies who are losing billions of dollars. Wil and Steph, his new venture capital partner, are hunted by the clandestine and all reaching arms of the corporate underworld who will stop at nothing to take TRUE COST offline, permanently. From China to Toronto, New York to Costa Rica, Wil and Steph try and evade the hidden assassins as they attempt and get the next version of TRUE COST up and running. Save the world or save themselves? It is a choice they need to make at every turn. Steph’s character is one of survival and success in a male dominated industry. She is as tough as it comes until that moment that touches her in a place she promised she would keep buried forever.
