Kevin Paul Scott has traveled to six continents and spoken to leaders from more than 100 countries. Kevin co-founded both ADDO Worldwide and the ADDO Institute. The ADDO Institute received the Governor’s International Award for “New Company of the Year” in the state of Georgia. The Institute works specifically in the areas of global leadership, student leadership, and thought leadership.
Prior to founding ADDO, Kevin’s background included non-profit charitable work, business ventures, and politics. After graduating from the University of Georgia, Kevin served on a presidential campaign team and then worked as a representative for a United States Congressman.
Kevin was named one of the “Power 30 Under 30″ for his work in expanding the marketing efforts nationwide as the Communicator in Chief for a global company. In consecutive years, Kevin was named to the “40 under 40” lists for Georgia Trend and then the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
For his leadership and business acumen, Kevin has been featured on Fox Business, CNBC and in numerous publications, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Atlanta Journal Constitution, Detroit Free Press, The Economist and others.
For fun, Kevin has been cage diving with Great White Sharks in South Africa, trekked Mountain Gorillas in Uganda, and ridden a llama in Colombia. However, he most enjoys being at home to cheer on the Atlanta Braves and Georgia Bulldogs. Kevin was raised in Kennesaw, Georgia, and is active in his local church. Known for his grassroots appeal and southern charm, Kevin speaks extensively at businesses, universities, and within the faith community.
I have known Kevin for nearly a decade, traveled with him to Africa, Europe, and Cuba, and listened to him speak to leaders at all levels. I admire Kevin, appreciate his friendship and am proud of his refreshing perspective on life and leadership.
Kevin has an uncanny instinct to identify when and how to leverage the seemingly counterintuitive in order to spur change.
