Scott Hammell has been entertaining professionally since 1998. In the fifteen years since, the four-time Guinness World Record holder has hung upside down from a hot air balloon while locked in a straitjacket and chains (World's Highest Suspension Straitjacket Escape), dangled by his ankles and juggled for over a minute and a half (Longest Inverted Juggling Duration), successfully completed a card trick while skydiving (World's Fastest Moving Card Trick), and jumped from an airplane while blindfolded and handcuffed (Highest Blindfolded Skydive). Not all of his stunts are Guinness World Records. Sometimes, Scott just likes a good challenge. He's juggled live explosives, successfully completed Houdini's Milk Can Escape, made a four ton Land Rover appear in Kenya, and is currently filming a feature length documentary about performing the deadliest trick in magic.
If his stunts seem crazy to you, then you should hear him speak! You'll find that his training and dedication to his craft are rigorous, the risks he takes are calculated, and his dream is to inspire others to challenge themselves. His speech topics are as varied as his skillset, but there is one enduring philosophy: find your passion, and make it happen.
Scott's work has brought him around the world. He has presented his speeches for top conferences and Fortune 500 companies across North America, as well as in Cuba, Barbados, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Singapore, Bali, Kuala Lumpur, Australia, and Kenya. He has performed for royalty and foreign dignitaries, including the Prime Minister of Malaysia and Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al Nuaimi . Over the years, Scott has been honoured to share the stage with a host of inspiring people, including Al Gore, Mia Farrow, Jesse Jackson, Stephen Lewis, Samantha Nutt, and Robert Kennedy Jr.
