Prior to starting his firm Edinger Consulting Group, Scott worked with some of the most respected thought leaders in the performance consulting business including Neil Rackham on sales effectiveness, Jack Zenger on leadership and teams, and Joe Folkman on employee engagement. Scott adapts his experience working with those mentors to develop innovative solutions that generate dramatic and sustainable results for his clients.

Having worked at one of the “Big Four” professional services firms, as well as various prominent training and consulting firms, Scott has always produced great results.

After seeing Scott present at a conference earlier in the year, I knew that I wanted him to deliver a keynote speech for the Fall American Society of Training and Development conference. He agreed and we were delighted! His content was well researched, and his delivery was both engaging and enlightening. The post-event feedback was that Scott’s session was the most valuable of the conference. I intend to use Scott in the future and highly recommend him to others looking to educate and engage their audiences. — Vice President, Talent Management, Kool Smiles LLC
