ABOUT ME

Dr Scott Bolland
Executive Coach, Keynote Speaker, Facilitator and Futurist

I am an international speaker and consultant on maximising human potential, specialising in the fields of Positive Psychology and Education Technology.

My PhD and 25 year background is in Cognitive Science - the interdisciplinary study of how the mind works, spanning such fields as Neuroscience, Psychology, Philosophy, and Artificial Intelligence.  And my passion is playing in the intersection between these areas, in particular how to best prepare individuals, teams, schools, and companies to flourish in the modern world.

 

Apart from Positive Psychology coaching, I run two businesses: Aha Entertainment (specialising in teaching Positive Psychology to corporate groups, and schools), and New Dawn Technologies (specialising in the use of Artificial Intelligence to improve student learning outcomes and engagement).

 

My TEDx talk entitled "Neuroscience, AI, and the Future of Education" has been seen by over 100,000 viewers, and has led me to consult for Ministries of Education across the globe and run strategy workshops for the Education Policymakers of the European Commission.

Over the years I have also brought the latest research-backed insights from Positive Psychology, leadership, and high-performance teamwork to a wide range of clients including business schools, the military, police services, resource companies, and financial institutions and has delivered large scale Positive Psychology based events to 1000s of school and corporate staff.
