What People Say About Scott Schwertly

“Scott has developed presentations for me on two occasions for a graduate recruitment program aimed at university students and for a recognition event for a large group of staff which I presented in an IMAX cinema locale. Both presentations were creative, edgy and fun whilst delivering real substance. Scott and the guys at Ethos3 have a real flair for creating fantastic, vibrant presentations that inspire the audience to take a more innovative approach to their own presentations. I also beamed Scott into a Leaders Forum where he ran a virtual tutorial for over 100 Leaders on how to be a better, more engaging presenter of content in a corporate IT environment. I was really pleased with the results and saw a real lift in the quality of presentations within that leadership team!”
—Jennifer Lacoon, Director Human Resources at University of Technology, Sydney

“Scott is super easy to work with and his company produces very creative and engaging multimedia presentations...a perfect fit for any company who wants to stand out. I will use him again in the future.”
—Christopher Uschan, VP of Marketing & Sales, Acumium—Digital Marketing, Ecommerce, Web Development

“Scott presents ideas in a way that keeps your attention. I attended a seminar where Scott was a presenter and I was surprised at the expert presentation. He did an outstanding job. I would attend another workshop and I would highly recommend him to my friends.”
