Entrepreneur
Scott has built and sold businesses on 3 continents. From the highly successful Bangkok Swimming School which ran swimming lessons for children across multiple locations in Thailand, which he then sold for a 7 figure sum, to the fastest growing aesthetic cosmetic franchise Lokkima which grew to 29 global locations within it's first 18 months. 

There have been non-successes too, like the tech startup he began in 2015 which failed after launch. However, Scott launched the incredibly successful Guestlist Podcast to document his journey with VenueMe, which ended up getting him an invite to 10 Downing Street and being named in The Guardian newspaper as one of the Top 100 Small UK Businesses.

Scott has had a successful career in podcasting since starting The Guestlist Podcast in 2015. He has since started four podcast channels including Make Money Podcast, Smarter Event Planning and Not Another Crypto Show (which was bought by tech company Pynk).

Scott has helped a number of other businesses and start ups propel their status and authority through professionally produced podcasts, leveraging the voice and message of the brand to secure partnerships, investments and even buy outs.

Scott has spoken on various stages about the power of podcasting, most recently alongside Lewis Howes, a Podcaster who is in the Top 50 of all iTunes podcasts, and has over 150 million downloads.
