Academia and business

He has built a track-record within both academia and business

Within academia Dr Scott-Morgan has taught numerous post-graduate Masters courses at the London Business School, the Rotterdam School of Management as visiting professor, and at the Hult International Business School in Boston (formerly the ADL School of Management at Boston College) – one of the Financial Times’ Top 100 Business Schools – where he was Professor of Business for six years and was made Chairman of the Board of Trustees. He has also written and conducted numerous executive-development programs, as well as written a post-graduate course for the Open University.

Within the business community, he has been Senior Vice President as well as Chief Learning Officer (CLO) of a global 3,500-person professional-services firm, heading a corporate department of sixty people responsible for change management, knowledge management, corporate communications, and organization and staff development – over a decade earlier he had been elected the youngest ever junior-partner of the firm. In a turnaround role he became Managing Director of a 150-person international management consultancy – for each of the three years he held this post the firm was consistently profitable for the first time since it was formed a decade earlier.
