Based on a strongly held belief that a business's success is driven by its people, Scott founded Inspiring Change in 2017. 


Based in Dublin, we work with clients in Ireland and further afield in Europe to help them connect with their people in a way that’s clear, inspiring and authentic to drive sustainable change and business performance.

We have a small but experienced team and, where necessary, we bring in the skills and experience we need from a board of trusted associates.  A bit like the Thunderbirds, this allows us to create teams that perfectly match the needs of each project or client.
