Scott Cullather has more than 30 years of brand communications and live event experience. He co-founded award-winning global live brand storytelling agency™, INVNT in 2008, and under his leadership, the agency has redefined the way organisations communicate to their employees, customers, and business partners. Across his career, Scott has led teams in the design, production, and execution of hundreds of large-scale B2B and B2C events in more than 40 countries, for dozens of the world's leading brands, companies, and trade associations. With Scott at the helm, more than a decade on INVNT continues to experience exceptionally strong, sustainable and balanced growth.

“Having lived and breathed live events for over 30 years, I am a passionate advocate of our craft, and it’s great to see an esteemed publication such as The Drum celebrate and recognise the work being done in this space. In an era of distraction, experiential offers a welcome solution for marketers seeking to engage their audiences in memorable and immersive ways. I’ll subsequently be looking for strategically and creative-led campaigns that produce demonstratable ROI for the client and ultimately change the way people think, feel, behave and perform.”
