In recent years, some of the most enjoyable and valuable programmes have involved the use of actors, particularly in having more difficult conversations. This often involves actors providing extremely realistic responses in such situations for participants to test their skills. Alternatively, participants can observe a scenario, before ‘directing’ the actors to make improvements.

Virtual learning has naturally become more popular since the pandemic. Scott now delivers workshops ranging from 45-minute short, focused sessions to full and half-day online workshops bringing together colleagues from different locations around the country and internationally.

Despite this trend, Scott has also seen a return to in-person learning, where colleagues can spend time away from their day job to collaborate and learn together in the same space. Often facilitating creative ideas, participants have enjoyed working face-to-face again whilst sharing and learning from each other’s experiences.

Scott works extensively across the full range of sectors, including pharmaceutical, insurance, education, manufacturing, entertainment, local authority, not-for-profit and hospitality.
