Who is Scott Graham?
“A true visionary, Scott Graham ignites the fire in all of us, leading us to life possibilities that define who we truly are. Scott Graham can be described by three words: Passionate, Energetic and Creative.”
When Scott begins a performance, every eye is on him. His energy is electrifying and his ability to connect with his audience is unbelievable. He has every person in the audience listening to his every word. He inspires and motivates both children and adults, teaching them the importance of embracing their differences and using life’s challenges as a way of learning and growing as leaders.
Scott believes that differences are things that make us who we are and that is why he embraces his learning disability and ADHD. He sees these differences as gifts which have enabled him to create leadership programs and summer camps that are unique and innovative. Scott wants children to realize that what makes them different now is what will make them great as adults.
Scott Graham’s imagination has led him to write six bestselling children’s books, produce a highly energetic anti-bullying DVD and a CD of his songs. He has performed at TEDx conferences and has recently been part of a documentary entitled, “Life Fantastical,” which is about Scott and his Kids 4 Kids Leadership Program. He has also appeared on Breakfast Television, City Pulse News, CH Morning Live, Global’s The Morning Show, BBC Radio, CFRB and was featured in the Toronto Star.
