Always Distinct

Scott’s passion for delivering experiences that clearly go beyond what we experience most days (if ever) hasn’t wavered in decades. Those whose embrace his vision and methodology can create distinct and memorable experiences for both internal and external audiences. Keep the lessons coming!

A lot in a little

Finally a podcast that gets it. I don’t have an hour a day to devote to podcasts. In appx 11 minutes Scott gets to the heart of the matter without 30 minutes of time wasting fluff.
