Speaking & Consulting

Scott Behson is a an accomplished professional speaker and consultant who provides talks, workshops, webinars, keynote addresses and consulting services for corporate clients, not-for-profit organizations and at major conferences.

Scott was great to work with and provided a very powerful and relevant presentation to our employees. Scott was able to quickly and enthusiastically hone in on many important key themes in his overview that were on point for the goals of the session and the culture of our organization. The session seemed very natural, we received great feedback, and, overall, it exceeded expectations

-JP Morgan Chase


Everything with Scott went extremely well. We’ve had so much great feedback from our attorneys and our clients that attended the event. Everyone thought the discussion was very honest and thought-provoking

- Ashurst


His talks are simultaneously personal and professional, containing humor, insight and challenging truths. Scott builds his talks based on his life as a working dad, his deep expertise as an national expert in work-family, his skill as an award-winning business school professor, and his experience working with employers and parents all over the country.


He brings a welcome perspective that balances the needs of employers and employees and demonstrates that work-family balance is not just a women’s concern.

Scott was a featured speaker at the United Nations’ International Day of the Family and the The White House Summit for Working Families and Summit for Working Fathers. He has also provided insight and perspective on Work & Family Policy, Fatherhood and areas in which the two intersect, for some of the world’s leading companies (including PIMCO, EY, FINRA, BOA/Merrill Lynch, Unilever, and Morgan Stanley) and at major national conferences and events (including World at Work's Total Reward Conference, Working Mother Magazine's Work-Life Conference, CEW's Cancer & Work Conference, Mom-Mentum, National At-Home Dad Network, Dad 2.0, Boys & Girls Club National Conference, O.Berk Family Business Forum, Employers Association of NJ), 

While Scott works with his clients to customize his presentations, the most common topics he covers include:

  • Creating Whole-Person Workplaces in which employees (and employers) can thrive

  • The Post-Covid Workplace- what changes will stick and how to move forward with confidence

  • How managers and employers can address the work-life challenges of their employees- Creating a family-forward workplace

  • Time management for balancing work and family, especially in the age of work-from-home

  • Why paternity leave is so important and how employees and employers can make the most of it

  • The joys and sacrifices of involved fatherhood

  • Why gender equity in the workplace is in everyone’s interest


Scott is represented by the Bright Sight Group, a leading speakers agency.


Scott is happy to work with NFPs, especially those working to promote work-family balance and/or fatherhood, on reduced pricing and discounted book purchases. He has worked with the NY Paid Leave Coalition, A Better Balance, 1 Million for Work Flexibility, Catalyst and more. Smaller NFPs should contact him directly.


Scott has worked with dozens of companies, large and small, to help them navigate the work-life challenges of their employees and build their cultures around paid maternity and paternity leave. He often works with the Center for Parental Leave Leadership. You can contact him here for more information.
