Scott has covered the last 5 Rugby World Cups for ITV and he is regular on Sky Sports. In addition to coverage of the Rugby World Cup Sevens from Moscow in 2013 he also commentated at the Commonwealth Games Rugby Sevens at Glasgow, 2014.

Scott is also a regular commentator on HSBC Sevens World Series covering games from seven-a-side tournaments across the world including Dubai, Hong Kong, Las Vegas and London. The popularity of the women’s game has seen Scott commentating on female tournaments in Dubai, Atlanta and notably, the famous Amsterdam Tournament.

Public Speaking

Scott is a dynamic public speaker and undertakes numerous speaking engagements and motivational seminars for blue chip companies, conferences and event organisers. His main focus of his seminars focusses on how to create winning teams in sport and business. From communication to planning, Scott presents a compelling case on how we all react under different pressures within the workplace.

He is happy to speak to senior managers in developmental workshops or at sales conferences as a motivational speaker. Other areas of focus include common purpose planning (CPP); a unique model that recognises the importance of an organisation’s goal and the personal aspirations of the individual members of that organisation that helps develop a culture of common understanding, desire and energy. He is equally at home explaining the issues of change management, responsibility and accountability. Scott uses some classic video clips from his playing and broadcasting career that helps deliver a fun and engaging experience to his audience!
