Les Brown once said, “The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry out their dream.” What is the lasting contribution you can make to this planet and to those around you?

Testimonials

Speaker Testimonials

Today we had Dave come in and speak to our students and the presentation was exactly what we hoped for – more in fact. Dave’s message on the power of kindness and resiliency was expertly woven through the story of his life. While telling us about his experiences surviving a plane crash, being a newcomer to Canada, and a little bit of world history, Dave highlighted the power of being kind and the power of being resilient. Dave’s message resonates so loudly with our school values but it was Dave’s public speaking ability that had our students captivated the second they entered the gym. Walking in and seeing a professional skateboarder doing tricks as they entered set the tone for what was to be, a wonderful experience to bring our community together. Dave’s excellent public speaking skills then took our audience on a wonderful journey through his story – all the while having the audience hanging on every word. Dave’s presentation was a dynamic way to start off our year.

Darren Stewart, Principal of Pitt River Middle School

Today we had Dave in to speak to the entire school in our gym. As the students entered our gym and saw Dave doing some tricks on his skateboard their energy level went up and the student’s attention was his. Throughout his presentation and the telling of his stories, the students were engaged and interested in what he had to say. Dave’s message was fantastic and very important for our students and staff to hear. His closing stunt left the kids cheering and wanting to see more. We all thoroughly enjoyed Dave’s presentation as his message was relative, passionate, and honest.

Brad Downey, Principal at Scott Creek Middle School, Coquitlam BC

As a youth recreation worker, I have been given the opportunity to witness Dave Jonsson speak and connect with youth. Dave has the natural ability to engage an audience and motivate them to be the best versions of themselves. He really is a true inspiration!

Scott Hammell

Speaker, Magician, Stunt Artist, Storyteller

Topics: College and Career Prep, Goal Setting, Leadership Development, Motivation and Inspiration, Resilience, Stress and Anxiety Management
Audiences: Corporate, Educators/Staff, Middle/High School, Parents, University/College

WORKSHOPS
AND TOPICS

Perspective

Magic is all about perspective. The same thing, seen from different angles can appear wildly different. Scott pulls back the curtain and examines how magicians use a combination of techniques to achieve the desired outcome. These techniques have been monumental in Scott’s life for his art, as well as understanding and gaining clarity on challenging issues. Subtle perspective shifts can lead to significant improvements.

Effective Goal Seeting Technique

Scott has built a wonderful life for himself by pursuing his dreams. He created opportunities for himself when he felt forward progress wasn’t fast enough. Some people look at Scott’s Guinness World Records as unique accomplishments. While Scott is very proud of these achievements, he views himself as an ordinary person who has figured out how to effectively set and accomplish goals!

Understanding Fear

Sometimes we push ourselves outside of our comfort zones, and sometimes we are pushed by factors external to us. In order to discover our true capabilities it is critical we move outside of our comfort zone.

Scott knows the benefits of pushing his boundaries all too well. He would not be a Guinness World Record holder today if he had not stepped outside of his comfort zone to attempt a gravity-defying stunt. Instead of being limited by his fear of heights, Scott faced the fear, embraced it, and ultimately overcame it.

Leadership

Scott knows what it takes to be a leader. He’s built, inspired and motivated his teams to achieve world-class results. Although his stunt experiences are unique, the wisdom he has gained and is able to convey is timeless and relatable. His leadership messages are about ideals such as protecting your crew, leading from behind, highlighting your team’s skill sets, delegation of tasks and successfully managing team members who are not contributing. Scott has toured the world, presenting at top leadership conferences and he is in demand for repeat performances.

Resilience

Sometimes our worst experiences can end up making us stronger. Scott sees opportunity in adversity and offers strategies to control perspective. We can’t control adversity, but we can control our perspective. Like most things in life, the more we practice resilience, the more naturally it comes. Scott’s passion-based approach to resilience offers a clear starting point as well as room to build solid foundations so that later work feels effortless.

Career Development

When you love doing something, it feels as natural as breathing. “Getting Paid to Breathe” is about finding your passion and making it happen.  Scott empowers his audience to examine their career development in the context of career satisfaction.

The Stuntman's Guide to Staying Calm

Scott Hammell has made a career by putting himself into stressful situations. No, I don’t just mean public speaking. Scott has tackled stunts in the air, on land and underwater. These experiences, combined with over 20 years as a hypnotist have lead to some interesting insights and techniques for staying calm during stressful situations. You don’t need to be attempting stunts to find the value in these simple practices.

The speech is designed to bring audiences into the mind of Scott as he’s about to perform one of his most dangerous stunts. His techniques for staying calm are broken down and elaborated upon. Scott also teaches the secrets to develop a super power.

The podcast is a free resource of relaxation recordings. These recordings are designed to help you sleep better, improve your memory, increase your focus and reduce your overall stress levels.

Additional Magic and Juggling Workshops

Scott has been teaching magic and juggling for over 20 years. He is able to provide participants with all the necessary tools to learn magic and or juggling.
