Scott Ward

Global Head of the Personal Development Programme for Athletes @ KPMG

Scott Ward is the Global Head of the Personal Development Programme for Athletes. Having created the programme personally, Scott understands the requirement for such a provision within the sporting fraternity. Being forced to retire from professional football in 2005 due to injuries Scott has since worked within the financial industry leading strategy and market development for multiple organisations.

Scott has since completed an MBA at Warwick Business School and written papers on athlete transition including the cultural, societal and business environment when attempting to change their vocation while addressing the importance of approaching such topics as early as possible during a person’s development.

The PDP for Athletes is now running globally and designed in a way that allows constant data retrieval on the participants performance and engagement in line with the demands of elite sport.
