Insights into marketing from an expert practitioner and trade journalist

 

marketing speaker samuel scottMany speakers sell something — especially if they speak for free. They annoy audiences with their sales pitches for their company’s products, their books, or their consulting services. But Samuel’s company’s product has nothing to do with marketing. He does not have a book. He does not do consulting.

Rather, Samuel Scott uses his decades of experience to give business clients and conference attendees actual insights into marketing best practices rather than buzzword-filled fluff. And yes — he charges a fee instead of selling something to audiences.

Samuel’s first career as a journalist and newspaper editor lets him see through the BS that fills much of the marketing industry. His second career in marketing has provided him the insights that he now shares with the world on stages and through his columns in publications ranging from The Drum to TechCrunch.

Scott has Mini-MBAs in marketing and brand management from Marketing Week in London, a Master of Advertising Effectiveness from the World Advertising Research Center (WARC) in the UK, and a B.S. in journalism from Boston University. He is also a member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) in the UK and a member of Toastmasters International.

In 2019, Scott was a judge for the UK Ad Association’s Young Lions competition in advance of the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. Scott is American and lives in Tel Aviv. Follow him on Twitter and LinkedIn
