General Session Speakers
Manuel V. Scott, First General Session Speaker (Sunday, 6:30 p.m.)
An Original Freedom Writer whose story is told in the Hollywood movie Freedom Writers, starring two-time Academy Award® winner Hillary Swank and Grey’s Anatomy’s Patrick Dempsey, Manuel Scott has devoted his life to equipping others with proven tools to succeed. With a tireless, selfless dedication, he enlightens, empowers, and revitalizes others with life-changing messages.
A dynamic speaker and facilitator whose experiences have helped him inspire people of all ages and life stages, Manuel travels throughout the United States, Asia, Africa, and Europe empowering leaders, servants, educators, and youth through powerful programs and presentations taken from his own life experiences.
At the age of fourteen, Manuel dropped out of school, and began to fulfill his teacher’s awful prediction that he would either be dead or in jail by the age of eighteen. His use of drugs and alcohol eventually led to his involvement in criminal activities. He says, “When I look back, I now see that I was heading down a path that would have destroyed me.”
However, due to an amazing transformation, Manuel has defied all the odds stacked against him. The once high school drop-out now holds a degree from the University of California at Berkeley, and a graduate degree from Trinity International University. He now speaks at Universities, colleges, civic organizations, high and middle schools, retreats, seminars, and religious institutions. He has received several awards for his commitment to transforming lives. He has appeared on “The View” with Barbara Walters and on “Nightline.” In 2005, he delivered the keynote address for the Lions Clubs International Convention in Hong Kong, and inspired a coliseum of twelve thousand delegates from 192 countries with a message of hope. Manuel Scott is changing lives all over the globe.
