Guest Profile

As the Founder and CEO of Digital Infusions, Scott is considered a leader in the areas of innovation and digital transformation.

Specializing in the use of emerging technologies to expedite business strategy, Scott draws from a unique blend of experience in business, technology and human behaviour.

His success is in large part thanks to the anchoring belief that despite the rapid explosion of technology, “going digital” remains a human process.

Scott's “human-led” approach starts by developing a crisp, clean awareness of the outcomes and activities that matter most to the business and its people; this insight gives context to the specific behaviours that underpin success. These behaviours are then used to form the foundation of a strategy, that is scaled and amplified using emerging technology.

With clients across Australia and North America, Scott works across sectors such as Finance; Government; Technology; Telecommunications; Construction; Health; Professional Services; & Retail to name a few.

Aside from leading Digital Infusions, Scott is also a current recipient of Microsoft’s Most Valuable Professional Award (MVP) and is a brand-new Dad.
