Scott is a Deloitte UK Partner, who focuses on Core Business Transformation through major programs. He specializes in shaping value-based deals in partnership with his clients to deliver their most challenging business outcomes.  Over the last 30 years Scott has held leadership positions within Industry and Professional Services across EMEA.
