Author and Family Adventurer Charles R. Scott was an Intel executive who took two sabbaticals. The first time he went back to Intel, and the second time he left to become a writer and is now a public speaker on sabbaticals with kids.

imagesHe is the author of the recent book Rising Son: A Father and Son’s Bike Adventure across Japan.  In the book and in his talks, he shares entertaining and sometimes harrowing stories from the adventurous family endurance challenges he has taken with his two young children across Japan, Iceland, and Western Europe.  He offers encouragement and tools to the audience to come up with their own adventures, unshackle themselves from sedentary living, too much stress, self-imposed limits, and anything else that gets in the way of pursuing a healthy, meaningful life.
