Scott McArthur speaker profile:
Scott offers an unusual mix of experience, having worked as a research scientist, HR director, business consultant, rock musical producer, writer, keynote and TEDx speaker. His delivery style, which he has developed across the sectors in over 20 years, is humorous, well-crafted, inspiring and direct.
Holding an undergraduate degree in Biology & Psychology and a Masters degree in Psychology & Business, Scott has published in a wide range of disciplines from pioneering microscopy techniques and disease detection to leadership development, organisational psychology, human resources, change management and rock music. Scott is an advocate of narrowing the “knowing-doing gap” between academic rigor and workplace application.
Scott has worked in over 200 organisations around the World, delivering transformation and change programmes (including personal transformation) and keynote speeches within multiple sectors. Scott’s ‘maker’s mark’ is his set of stories, which go much, much deeper into the human condition than traditional organisational experiences.
In the past 15 years, Scott has consulted in a range of industries in Europe, North America and Asia for over 100 organisations. He has worked with many national and international organisations including government bodies (UK Ministry of Defence), major retailers (eg. M&S ,Sainsbury’s), IT firms (eg. Atos, Capgemini), global organisations (eg. PwC, Swiss Re, Valspar) and Olympic organisations (eg. UK Olympic Authority and the British Olympic Bobsleigh Team). Scott currently mentor’s industry leaders in these industries.
Scott’s focus is on inspiring people to change. He achieves this via a suite of development programmes that utilise well-honed channels such as arts, sciences and economics, as well as pioneering concepts such as mindfulness and behavioural economics.
When speaking, Scott can mould a convincing narrative from all these disciplines, to inspire the audience and provide them with unique tools and techniques to take away and make a real difference to their lives.
Scott is currently curating “The verse at the heart of DiVERSity” an evening of spoken word, hip-hop and poetry to take place in London later in 2018. He is also a visiting lecturer at the universities of Birmingham, Sussex and Cranfield, has recently joined Boroughmuir Rugby club’s performance board and is writing ‘The HR Paradox’, to be published in 2019.
