Scott has brought a completely new method to onstage presentation at business events. His engaging, discussion-driven sessions define business conference excellence, and have made him the preferred choice to lead a wide range of business and policy gatherings. For example, immediately after 9/11 the FBI urgently assembled corporate security and systems professionals to discuss protection of US critical infrastructures. Scott Shuster was chosen to chair that meeting from start to finish, filling the role of overall moderator as well as discussion leader. When the CEO and all nine senior leaders of the world's largest insurance company needed to present themselves before audiences of hundreds of insurance brokers in seven cities, Scott traveled with them, chairing each meeting, and interviewing the CEO and all the executives for hours in front of each audience.
Scott Shuster undertakes a meticulous custom preparation for every event, ensuring that he is ready for off-the-cuff discussion of the most detailed industry - or company-specific issues. As "the Business Week Discussion Leader" his presence on your program brings objectivity and impartiality. At the same time, Scott recognizes that every event is organized to address a particular set of communication goals, and he makes himself available to sit with his clients prior to every meeting in order to understand your communication goals and ensure that they are met onstage.
