About ADDO Worldwide
ADDO is a brand + experience consultancy that helps businesses and brands ideate and activate initiatives to enhance leadership and social impact. They create ways for companies to maximize “doing business” while “doing good” to deliver tangible, sustainable and measurable engagement with customers and their communities.
The ADDO story begins 10 years ago, at the University of Georgia. Founders Garrett Gravesen and Kevin Scott worked together to launch and lead H.E.R.O. for Children – a charity that has raised more than 2 million dollars for children with HIV/AIDS and became the largest pediatric AIDS organization in Georgia. In 2008, the two started the Global L.E.A.D. Program along with two other entrepreneurs and together these two companies have engaged more than 10,000 next-generation leaders in programs across the United States, Africa, and Europe. More importantly, these two companies created leaders and made a tangible, meaningful impact. The two went on to form ADDO in 2011 to expand social impact and leadership into business and in 2012 was named Governor’s International Award “New Company of the Year” in the State of Georgia.
Kevin Scott has traveled to six continents and spoken to leaders from more than 100 countries. Kevin co-founded ADDO, which is Latin for “Inspire.” In addition to working with businesses and brands, ADDO has developed a national leadership program with Chick-fil-A (Chick-fil-A Leader Academy).
