Ex-professional football goalkeeper. Avid netball fan. Passionate about developing people globally. Proud father of two.

Scott is global lead for EY’s Personal Performance Programme. He has an MBA from Warwick Business School which he studied after retiring from professional football following numerous injuries.  After retiring he worked for himself designing strategy and implementation plans for organisations. Following this, Scott joined another professional services firm where he stayed for three years before joining EY, where he has designed the first globally digital upskilling programme for athletes and beyond.

Scott’s studies have included papers on career transition, attitudes and practices within sport, and business and the societal impact on the decision-making process during these challenges. 

How is Scott is building a better working world 

“I designed the first globally assured digital and workshop upskilling programme that can be tailored for various industries and levels. It focuses on conscious development of the cognitive decision-making process for people to allow for better decisions, better outcomes and a better working world.

I am a huge advocate of mental health and cardiac health which subsequently has led to a sport specific mental health certificate being established with Mental Health First Aid England. Due to its transferability, the programme is now being promoted through City & Guilds to both Higher and Further education."
