About me by me….

Music daft. I love everything from the raucous rock of Pearl Jam, the eclectic excellence of Bowie, to the sweet soul sound of Otis Redding. I’m a bit of an outdoors man. When I’m not cycling the hills, I can be found in The Lab blending learning solutions that focus the mind and engage the imagination. I also like the colour purple – a lot! I believe in the principle of possibility and reckon Einstein was spot on when he said, “Creativity is simply intelligence having fun”. I’ve been running the Lab for over 13 years. People might refer to me as the Founder, Owner or Consultant; I prefer to describe what I do and how I may help. Creater, curator, baker, randomator.

Away from The Lab, I like to downhill bike on trails, with a hefty slice of fair weather road rides. I run, although I get bored after 7k. I love to cook and bake, have been known to bring my kitchen efforts to my events for learners to feast on. I believe the craft of baking, or anything crafted for that matter, is so intertwined in personal growth. I can bake bread, but I’ll never master it. Every new sourdough is a journey through lifelong learning.

I love nothing more than watching my wee clan of three grow and blossom to discover the new adventures the world can bring every day. I have been dancing to Primal Scream with the same fab lady for 30 years…..oh, and I’m Scott.

My older brother reckons….

If my car is outside the house, I’m watching Sky Sports. I am, of course, working studiously in my office creating exciting new learning events – apart from soccer transfer deadline day when he is most accurate. He’s also warned me not to try out my Jedi coaching sh*t on him. Love you bro x

My kids think…..

I’m a teacher and entertainer rolled into one. Partially due to the gadgets and toys I borrow from their rooms to aid my learning experiences. I love the look on their faces when I ask, ” Has anyone got a pair of disco sunglasses?” Or that time when I took my youngest questions and answers about space book to aid a strategic leadership planning day.

My wife says….

I love you but stop putting on your phone voice when you’re on Zoom.

My folks describe my job as….

I do stuff with people to help to deal with their work stuff more effectively – which is pretty accurate in my view.
