speaking

Your audience may be teens & young adults or less-young adults.  Scott has keynotes to help both.

Keynote 1:

BEFORE THE MORTGAGE

Audience:  Teens or young adults (click here to read feedback from college students)

Length – 30-45 minutes with optional Q&A

Perspective.  Who (and who not) to surround yourself with.  Understanding where the heck your passion comes from.  What to do with ‘it’.  The audience is taken on a ride that helps them understand all of it.  Scott draws from a few very emotional experiences to illustrate what passion really looks like.  It’s raw and his eyeballs tend to sweat a little bit during the talk.

With some humor and stories sprinkled in, the audience is taken from some of the lows Scott experienced in his teen years to the high of being on your stage inspiring the people in the room.

Imagine the connection that is made when the audience is encouraged to take the answers they’ve formulated during the talk and connect them to going to school.  The aha moment is achieved by many and this sets them on a purposeful path.

Topics covered in “BEFORE THE MORTGAGE” include….

  • Understanding passion & purpose
  • Drawing from what makes you you
  • Where inspiration does and does not come from
  • Not chasing the money first
  • Why ‘NOW’ rocks!
  • Peer pressure
  • Finding your ‘it’
  • The value of serving others with your strengths, talents and abilities

Keynote 2:

TURNING ‘SOMEDAY I WANT TO’ INTO ‘I’M SO GLAD I DID

Audience:  Adults open to inspiration

Length – 30 minutes with optional Q&A

Scott Wittig has lived what so many 30, 40 and 50-somethings are living now – they have a job and go to work but long for something more.  There is an itch to be scratched, but they can’t figure out how to scratch it.  From starting a non-profit to serve a cause to finally doing something with their photography passion….and everything in-between.  There is a way to do both and Scott has proven it.

As a veteran mortgage banker, Scott managed to carve out time during the busiest two years of his career to write Holy It! A Guide to Finding and Doing Your Thing – Your ‘It’ He has also managed to promote his book and build a business around it.  IT is possible – you just have to FIND THE RIGHT THING.

Your audience will be taught how this is possible.

Your audience will learn what to watch out for.

Your audience will be given permission to shine.

Your audience will learn some tricks.

Your audience will find out more about accountability.

Your audience WILL NOT be talked out of their jobs.

At first blush this message may sound like, “quit your job and go do what you love.”  Nope.  That’s not what Scott did and that’s not what he preaches.  If an employee is going to do that, they are going to do that.  THIS message is about how it is possible to keep doing what you’re doing, but find fulfillment ALONG WITH whatever is paying the bills.  The people who hear this talk may be MORE LIKELY to stay because they will be more fulfilled once they start acting on ‘it.’
