“Over the course of my career, I’ve had the privilege to work with some of the most talented individuals in business. Creative and commercial professionals along with business strategists and people with straight-forward ambition. It’s been my job to develop them as individuals and as part of a team and lead a number of them through change management. What makes me qualified to coach? I’ve experienced career high’s and career low’s, rapid promotion, success and failure, challenging conversations, difficult business choices and recently, life-changing decisions that have led me here.
And I wouldn’t change a thing! I have extensive experience in change management, therefore work with individuals who have experienced business change or those who are about to implement change.
I undertake continuous professional development to ensure my approach remains fresh, focused and contemporary.”
Various artists may create or develop specific parts of an art piece or scene; but it is Scotts job as a creative director to supervise and unify the vision. In particular, Scott pulls together the overall visual appearance and how it communicates visually, stimulates moods, contrasts features, and psychologically appeals to a target audience.
One of the most difficult problems that Scott faces is to translate desired moods, messages, concepts, and underdeveloped ideas into imagery. During the brainstorming process, Scott, co-workers, and clients are engaged in imagining what the finished piece or scene might look like. At times, Scott is ultimately responsible for solidifying the vision of the collective imagination while resolving conflicting agenda and inconsistencies between the various individual inputs.

Dr. Suzanne Zeedyk is a research scientist fascinated by babies’ inborn capacity to communicate. Since 1993, she has been based at the University of Dundee, within the School of Psychology.
In 2011, she set up her own independent training enterprise to disseminate more widely the science of the early years. She now spends much of her time speaking to the public about our human need for emotional and physiological connection. She is able to bring to this her research expertise on topics including parent-infant relationships, family support, communicative disorders, and the socio-political contexts that frame our responses to scientific information.
She works closely with organisations throughout the world to increase awareness of the decisions we take about caring for children, illuminating the way in which those decisions are integrally connected to our vision for the kind of society we wish to build.
