Charles R. Scott | Speaker Biography

Former Intel Corporation employee
UN-recognized "Climate Hero"
Author of "Rising Son"

Charles R. Scott is a former employee of Intel Corporation, where he worked for 14 years. During his time at Intel, he spent five years in the venture investing group and developed the corporation's clean technology software investment strategy. In 2011, he left Intel to pursue his passion for writing, speaking, and completing endurance challenges with his family that are linked to environmental causes.

One of his notable achievements was cycling the length of mainland Japan, covering 2,500 miles in 67 days, with his eight-year-old son in the summer of 2009. This endeavor earned them the title of "Climate Heroes" from the United Nations, as they raised funds for a tree planting campaign and promoted the UN's efforts to combat climate change. Scott documented this adventure in his book, "Rising Son: A Father and Son's Bike Adventure Across Japan" (2012), which emphasizes the importance of spending quality time with children.

Scott's writings have been published by reputable sources such as CNBC, the Huffington Post, MSN, and the United Nations. His family adventures have been featured in various media outlets around the world, including television and radio programs, magazines, and newspapers.

Scott's keynote talks are highly recommended for corporate audiences seeking inspiration beyond monetary gains, individuals looking for meaningful ways to connect with their children, and those interested in environmental issues. His talks are also suitable for school children (grades K-12), universities, environmental groups, cycling groups, and endurance enthusiasts. He has spoken at prestigious institutions such as IFC-World Bank, Harvard Business School, Yale School of Management, and various computing and environmental conferences. Additionally, he has given presentations to students at the United Nations International School and other schools nationwide.

In addition to his speaking engagements, Scott is an accomplished athlete who participates in Ironman triathlons, marathons, and other ultra-distance races. He has also served as a guide for blind athletes in these events. His impressive athletic feats include running his first marathon at the age of 13 and completing a 46-mile run across the Grand Canyon in one day in 2010. In 2011, he cycled around Iceland for 46 days with his 10-year-old son and four-year-old daughter. He also cycled solo for 26 hours from New York City to Washington, D.C. in 2012 to support an environmental rally opposing the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. In 2013, he and his children cycled 1,700 miles of the Lewis & Clark Trail, collecting data for a project with Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation. National Geographic published his essays from this trip on their Intelligent Travel blog, and The New York Times featured an interview with him about the adventure.

Scott holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy (magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa) from Vanderbilt University and a Master's Degree from The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.
