World renown figure skater, cancer survivor, and one of the most sought after keynote speakers in the world today.
Scott Hamilton's new best-selling book The Great Eight: How To Be Happy Even When You Have Every Reason To Feel Miserablewas published by Thomas Nelson Publishing on January 6, 2009. Also, starting in March 2009, Scott will be a contestant on NBC's Celebrity Apprentice. This year Scott celebrates the 25th anniversary of his Winning The Gold, his 50th Birthday, and the birth of his second son, Maxx. He signed a new, three-year, sports commentator deal with NBC Sports. He is a busy man.
Clearly one of the most sought after keynote speakers and most popular figure skating stars in the world today, Scott Hamilton is also a role model, a humanitarian, and a cancer survivor. As a keynote speaker, he exudes enthusiasm and inspiration. As a figure skater, he is forever bridging the gap between sport and entertainment. As a role model, he contradicts the saying that "good guys finish last." As a humanitarian, he avails himself to any plight that will improve mankind. But, more important, as a cancer survivor, he is a constant reminder that with fortitude and determination, anything is possible. Scott's much publicized bout with testicular cancer in 1997, and his November 2004 diagnosis of a benign, non-cancerous pituitary brain tumor, from which he is successfully recovering, has touched him with a special insight into life and the human condition.
During the last five years, Scott has inspired audiences at various events throughout the country, speaking to a wide variety of groups and organizations about his life and overcoming cancer. Never ceasing to impress, his clarity about living the life he’s been given, has inspired thousands upon thousands of people at numerous engagements for such diverse organizations as Hilton Hotels, Bank of America, John Hancock Financial Network, MassMutual, Healthcare Management Systems, Institute for International Research, Elekta, Inc., America's Second Harvest (Feeding America), the Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center, Liberty Mutual, Peak Vista Community Health Centers' annual "Breakfast of Champions," the Toledo Children’s Hospital, the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, Goshen Health System, the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, St. Vincent Oncology Center, Pituitary Network Association, University of St. Thomas Lecture Series, Robert Wood Johnston University, the University of Chicago Hospital, the American Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists, and the Congress of Oncology Nurses, Kansas City Life, Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, CanCare of Houston, Inc., Nationwide Mutual Insurance, Vanguard Insurance, Higher Education User Group, Providence Health Systems, National Council for Prescription Drug Programs, and Million Dollar Round Table to name but a few.
