I'd love to hear from you
Hey, Scott here...whether it is through the below form or on your favorite social media channel (icons below), I'd love to hear from you.
Feedback: I'm a fan of continuous improvement, and the Prepared Neighborhoods book was a fun exercise in co-creation with a wide number of folks across North America. I'm currently collecting improvements and additions for the next edition of this book; your constructive feedback, suggestions, and thoughts are always welcome.
Media: While I'm a first-time author, I've had the pleasure of working with some amazing journalists over the years through my various companies. I'm well versed in what's helpful for journalists on tight deadlines who need targeted content delivered succinctly. Here's what Steve Bunin, the Emmy Award winning news anchor for KING5, recently said about me:
Scott James’ book, Prepared Neighborhoods, will save lives. It is must-read, page-turner despite its daunting subject matter, and Scott’s ability to transform a scary future into a manageable and more enjoyable present is visionary.
As part of our extensive earthquake preparedness coverage at KING5 in Seattle, Scott’s expertise has proved invaluable. He has the rare skill of being able to speak comfortably with both experts and layman, decoding science and psychology into the manageable sound bites of television.
In more than 20 years of journalism, I’ve never come across someone who brought more to the table – from story tips to helpful suggestions about camera angles. I can honestly say - with no pun intended - Scott James is literally the most prepared guest I’ve ever interviewed.
Consulting: Over the course of researching and writing this book, I developed a deep network of community leaders, doers, and builders from neighborhoods across the nation. Should you be interested in engaging myself or my team on your project, please begin the conversation via the below form. 1:1 Skype sessions are available, as well as in-person sessions if you are within a three-hour driving radius of Seattle (I've eliminated most airplane travel from my life). To hear directly from a few of the top-performers and executive teams I've coached over the years, you can skim through these testimonials.
Speeches: I have 20+ years of public speaking experience for groups large and small. Scott Wolfman best summarized my approach to delivering a tailored speech for your group when describing a talk I gave to one of his clients:
“When Washington University in St. Louis — a prestigious Midwest school — asked me to find an inspirational speaker from the world of social enterprise to keynote a social entrepreneurship contest on their campus, I rolled up my sleeves, went online and contacted many fascinating and qualified candidates. But my search ended when I found Scott James.
Not only was his story exactly what the university wanted, but his personality and infectious passion and enthusiasm for his work, put him at the top of their wish list. Scott hit a homerun for us and for the client.”
