Speaking

Over the past thirty plus years as a soldier, police officer, and fundamentally flawed human I have travelled the road less trodden. I bring all of my experience, pain, joy and my ultimate redemption to every speaking performance.


Having lived a life dominated by poor mental health I can speak with experience, compassion and brutal honesty about the highs and lows of my journey and educate others to make better more informed choices about their own mental health journey.


Scott delivers in person, virtual and remote speaking services to employers, charities, schools and community groups to challenge the stigma associated in particular with men’s mental health.


If you want to book a speaker who truly breaks the mould Scott is just the chap you have been looking for. From his infectious smile to his trademark waistcoats Scott is a speaker who has been forged in the crucible of trauma over the course of a truly unique life.


Able to talk with compassion, empathy and brutal honesty about his own mental health struggles yet always retain a clear focus on the power that comes with self awareness he brings audiences on a journey of self discovery and learning.


After decades of poor choices Scott now owns his own mistakes in a truly liberating honesty that encourages others to re-examine the narrative of their past and take the first steps towards a better future.
