Scott Amyx Reviews


Review: “Scott has his finger on the pulse!”


Review: “Engaging!”

Thinking Heads

Review: “Trend Spotter”

Tony Robbins, World-Renowned Business Leader and Peak Performance Strategist, Best-Selling Author of Unshakeable, Money Master the Game, Unlimited Power and Awaken the Giant Within

Review: "Strive. Pushing through our limits, doing the hard thing, and focusing on constant and never-ending growth and improvement is the ticket to impact and fulfillment!" 


Review: “We all know or have read stories of people who seem to rise from the ashes or come out of nowhere to achieve success. Strive points out that most of these individuals were not extraordinary by nature but extraordinary by action.”

Tribeca Film Festival

Review: "The true alchemy of Strive is that it combines, great storytelling, great anecdotes, and some pretty profound insights. No question Scott Amyx's key takeaway is to get comfortable being uncomfortable… or perhaps find yourself a different journey. Learning to live perpetually outside your comfort zone is perhaps a condition precedent for success -- the special sauce for cooking up ideas that will change the world."

Singularity University

Review: “Strive teaches us to embrace discomfort and achieve success in this exponentially changing world.”

Esteban Barrera, Thinking Heads

Review: Scott is a very insightful and engaging speaker! When we invited him to Colombia he gave us a very tailored presentation about the importance of the Internet of Things (IoT) for building smart cities, which was a very avant-garde experience for the audience. Also, when he came to Costa Rica, Scott gave the audience an energetic introduction to IoT and smart cities, which was very much aligned with what our client needed.

Donna Parrish, Localization World

Review: Internet of Things. He brought a lot of information, enlightening stories and eye-opening facts to our audience. He showed an incredible in-depth topic knowledge, yet the way he presented the information made all that data easy to understand and digest. Scott's friendly style both on and off the stage made us all comfortable and ready to learn more. I highly recommend him as a speaker.

Mick Safron, UnicornLab & Biohacking Congress

Review: Scott is an incredible VC moderator and panelist who has the sharpest due diligence questions. If you ever get a chance to see him in action on stage, you will be surprised by his in-depth tailored questions that get to the heart of the matter that counts the most.

Greg Kaye, EMRG

Review: Your ability to pinpoint thought provoking questions to each participating startup, both technical and business, was incredibly helpful to all competing founders, regardless of industry. We commend your due diligence and will invite you to stay involved in all future EMRG events.

Dominie Roberts, Informa

Review: It was great working with Scott Amyx at this years' IoT World and IoT Security shows where he provided some great insight into IoT technologies, the Wearables markets; and securing IoT networks through managed PKI Certificates! His presentations were engaging and comprehensive and we look forward to continuing to work with Scott moving forward

Katie Flash, Informa Connect

Review: Scott Amyx was a delight to work with leading up to, during and after Wearables TechCon. He went above and beyond just speaking at his session "Affective Computing and Sentiment Analysis in Wearables." With all the little extras, combined with fantastic comments on his presentation from feedback collected at the show, I would be thrilled to work with him again on future shows.
