Insights into marketing from an expert practitioner and trade journalist


samuel scottSamuel Scott uses his decades of experience to show businesses and conferences the true present and future of marketing.

The Internet obtained mass adoption when Scott’s generation was in university. As a result of his experiences in both the online and offline worlds, he is old enough to remember marketing before the Internet but young enough to be a tech native. He takes traditional marketing best practices and shows how to apply them in today’s modern world.

Scott is a marketing strategist who understands how the offline and online worlds are reflections of each other. In 2019, Scott served as a judge of the UK Ad Association’s Young Lions competition in advance of the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. In 2023, he was on the jury for the Epica Awards.

Born and raised in the United States, Samuel is American and is based out of Tel Aviv.
