“Disrupt the narrative and the behaviors that bind you with the tools and techniques that Scott McArthur will give you on a silver platter of wit, passion and a touch of rock and roll”.

We are creatures of habit and Scott McArthur’s mission is to help us break those habits; especially the ones that are not beneficial to our progress. From Lanark, Scotland, Scott started his own career path by breaking the very habits that should have defined him. Rather than be swept up in a predictable future, Scott decided to prove the statistics and his school career advisor wrong and went on to study biology and psychology at college. Today, he delivers keynote speeches on the human condition to instruct audiences on how to make better decisions, have better conversations, and reframe beliefs and opinions.

With a myriad of experiences, Scott’s background gives him a well of content to draw upon that allows him to connect with his audience in a way, unlike other traditional organizational experiences. He does not get on stage to just give a list of bullet points, but rather teaches his audiences to actually think so they can walk away with the tools and techniques they can use in their personal and work lives.

“Scott brings a huge amount of creativity & passion to his speaking engagements. He provides deep expert insight into employee engagement & communication. Nor is he afraid to challenge his audiences to achieve superior results.” – Ursula Morgenstern, CEO Atos (Germany)

Having worked as a rock musical producer, TEDx speaker, HR director, research scientist, and business consultant, Scott’s experience is rich and his delivery style near perfection. He became the go-to speaker for keynotes, learning, and development while working for top organizations such as UK Ministry of Defence, M&S and the UK Olympic Authority. Today, Scott and partner Samantha run Sculpture Consulting Ltd working for a wide range of clients such as Atos, Superdry, SwissRe, Deloitte, and Capgemini.

He is published in a wide range of disciplines including disease detection, leadership development, transformation, mindfulness, pioneering microscopy techniques, rock music, and human resources. Scott focuses his keynote programmes on inspiring his audiences to change from the inside out; what he calls the “inner work” of relationships, organizations, and cultures. Learn how to change your life and disrupt the habits that define you with Scott’s well-crafted and inspiring programmes.


Bringing Your Organization to its Senses

This is Scott’s signature keynote, which is the foundation for his other talks and client specific presentations. The key theme centers on why we should and how we can go about connecting our workplaces with science and humanities.

Delegates will learn how to:

  • apply the thinking skills of the sculptor to your personal and organizational development;
  • appreciate the nuances of personal and group communications;
  • think like a scientist and create like an artist;
  • use the idea of having “strong opinions weakly held” and how this can help overcome implicit bias and improve creativity and performance.

This keynote is great for the entire workforce, leaders, marketing, HR, and L&D groups.
