Reasons to book Scott McArthur

  • By incorporating humour into his presentations, he is able to connect effectively with his audience and leave a lasting impression.
  • He is published in a wide range of disciplines including disease detection, leadership development, transformation, mindfulness, pioneering microscopy techniques, rock music, and human resources.

He is a published scientist, poet and writer 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.

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. 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 transformation 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 humour his talks are never forgotten. His ability to make complex ideas accessible and engaging makes his talks memorable and inspiring.

As one CEO said of one of Scott’s keynotes, “…he gave off enough energy that if harnessed could have lit up the city” -Helen Murdoch.

Scott is a very reliable and influential speaker with an array of expertise to share, which is always delivered in an energetic and influential manner. It's always a pleasure and a breeze to work with Scott, who complements conferences with an insightful, yet unique spin, which audiences appreciate and benefit from.

Tilly Smith, Deputy Head of Content

We had the pleasure of welcoming Scott at the Shared Services Forum UK annual conference in November last year. Our conference theme was FutureVision: TomorrowNow and Scott gave a fantastic speech asking our members “Is the future analogue?" Scott discussed the fear and hype surrounding AI and RPA, the lessons he has learnt over the last 20 years and shared his thoughts on where he thinks our organisations and individuals are up too and provided ideas on what they can do to help themselves and their people thrive. I would highly recommend Scott for any event, he is professional and engaging, a great storyteller and his visuals alongside his energy and honesty captivated our members until the end.

Events Manager at Shared Services Forum UK Ltd

Knowing our conference audience would appreciate something thought-provoking and a little outside of our day-to-day work, I asked Scott to speak at Intranet Now 2017, and people vividly remember his key points and delivery. Scott understands the role of communication within business and, more importantly, he understands people. Anything Scott does on stage would be worth listening to; he brings a clarity and energy to the topic.

Wedge Black

Conference Director

I heard Scott speak at Intranet Now where he delivered an outstanding presentation on change management. He then gave a different talk at IntraTeam Event Copenhagen which also was brilliant. Great speaker, thinker and motivator!
