Scott’s accomplishments as a leadership trainer and team building facilitator are only surpassed by his successes on the side of the worlds most famous mountains and in the extreme polar regions of our planet. Scott is the 51st Canadian to summit Mount Everest, the 18th Canadian to climb the 7 Summits, the 7th Canadian to ski unsupported to the South Pole and one of only 33 certified Polar Guides in the world.
Having led expeditions in the Himalayas and to the North and South Poles Scott has gained great insights into building high performance teams, how to set and achieve big goals, how to overcome challenge and how to be a great leader. Years of experience, two undergraduate degrees and a Masters in Leadership and Training provide Scott with unique qualifications to design and deliver some of the most innovative corporate experiential based training available today. Scott has one goal: to assist teams, leaders, and individuals in reaching their peak performance. This is accomplished through combining the latest team and leadership theory with cutting edge experiential training to create one of the most effective training and team building programs available today.
Scott has taught leadership and team development for the EMBA and MBA programs at the Rotman School of Management, Odette School of Business, and the University of Edinburgh
