SCOTT MONTY | Authentically building your own personal brand #044

Scott Monty built his own personal brand and then left the corporate world to build his own company, Scott Monty Strategies. He offers wise, actionable insights to help you build your own.

Scott spent six years as an executive at Ford Motor Company, as a strategic adviser on crisis communications, influencer relations, customer service, innovative product launches and more. He speaks to groups and advises brands and agencies to help them embrace the fundamentals of human communication in the digital age. His clients have included Walmart, IBM, Coca-Cola, American Airlines, T-Mobile and GE Software.

Scott has been ranked by The Economist as number one atop the list 25 Social Business Leaders and by Forbes as one of the top 10 influencers in social media. He’s an internationally recognized leader in digital communications, digital transformation, social media and marketing.

As a little treat, you’ll also hear him speak about his ongoing affinity and podcast, I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere.
