I am passionate about purpose-led organisations and building better communities. This has led me to offer my skills and experience to the Leaders Institute Board.
My current role is Manager - individual and community fundraising and business development for Guide Dogs SA/NT. I have also led key projects as National Director Business Development and Innovation, National Heart Foundation. This included changes to the call centre which increased awareness and use across Australia. I secured grant funding to automate heart health literature distribution using chat bots, which significantly reduced costs.
Before entering the NFP sector I was Diamonds Camera and Video GM, responsible for four retail sites and up to fifty employees. This role included all aspects of multi-site retail management such as sales, marketing, inventory management, online retail, negotiating supplier contracts and business development.
I currently volunteer as Secretary for the Adelaide Business Collective, an NFP representing businesses within the City of Adelaide. Our purpose is to advocate to local government for change to improve how we promote, support and drive business across the city.
Scott is a recent Fellow of the GLF completing the program in 2019.
