He is passionate about helping his clients maximise their potential and achieve their business and personal goals.
When he’s not working tirelessly for his clients, Scott is a huge music fan (especially when it comes to Bruce Springsteen!) and he attends as many concerts as he can manage, often with his family, who share his passion for music. Scott is a well-known face within his community and works with a number of local charities. He even has his own local radio show!
