Hilary Scarlett’s work has spanned Europe, North America and Asia, and focuses on working with leadership teams in the private and public sectors to help them introduce change efficiently and effectively. In particular, she designs and delivers leadership and applied neuroscience masterclasses, seminars, webinars and workshops.
Hilary holds an MA from Cambridge University, has a post-graduate Certificate in the Psychology of Organisation Development and Change and is an accredited executive coach with the Institute of Leadership and Management.
Hilary works with neuroscientists at University College London and in the USA, bringing their work out of the lab and into the workplace in a very practical and accessible way.
She regularly writes and speaks on managing change and how to help people perform at their best, through better understanding their brain. Her book Neuroscience for Organizational Change – an evidence-based, practical guide to managing change was published in 2016 and was widely praised. A second edition was published in 2019.

Although applied neuroscience is still in its infancy, it is already providing significant insights into people, teams and organisations.

If we can understand our brains a little better, we can work with this knowledge, have greater self-awareness and be better equipped to lead through change.

- The impact of organisational change on the brain and on our ability to think
