At the core of Scott’s speaking and executive events is his knowledge gleaned from working in over 200 organizations across the world delivering transformation and change programs for multiple sectors. However, his makers mark on the conference stage are his stories which go much deeper than business into the human condition. He is a published scientist (degenerative disease) poet (narrative) HR specialist (performance and technology) and writer (music, prose, and business) and has won awards for consulting, training, speaking, and for his contribution to Scottish music. One of his websites has been identified as being of cultural importance in his hometown of Glasgow (Scotland) and his co-authored book on Glasgow’s music scene has been inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame.

When speaking Scott is able to mould a convincing narrative from these disciplines to inspire the conference audience and to provide them with unique tools and techniques that they can take back into their lives and workplaces and make a real difference to their lives.

Scott’s keynotes are particularly concerned with “Future Literacy” and specifically focus on the future of work and our relationship with disruptive technologies such as Biotechnology, AI, and Nanotechnology. His delivery style is visually impactful, carefully evidenced-based, and delivered with a hint of Billy Connolly-like humor his talks are never forgotten.
