Marriott Scott Consulting specialises in communications, fundraising and enterprise development in the UK and internationally. In practice, this means we support programme development, mobilise resources and help agencies be more effective day-to-day in achieving mission.


The venture started in 2012 but Marriott Scott Consulting is built on over two decades of hands-on experience on every continent (except Antarctica).


I’m Ashley Scott founder of Marriott Scott Consulting (MSC).

Located in the UK, I have worked in international business and not-for -profit sectors since the mid-1980’s.

I have held Director / EVP positions in Communications and Fundraising in national and international nonprofits. And, I’m a full member of the Institute of Fundraising in the UK (MinstF) and the Cranfield Management Association.


The “we” in MSC relates to a bank of associates who are joined to the MSC project and who provide the breadth in “our” menu of services. You’ll get a sense of that project from this site and the focus of our mission.


Personally,  I derive the greatest satisfaction from taking an idea – however abstract – and making it work in practice. And I’ve been privileged to do that around the world.


What you get from MSC is practical know how. I believe that enterprises succeed by doing the basics well but also by taking what they do well and innovating. To help values-based organisations do both is why MSC exists.

From retail to wholesale across charity and commercial sectors; from marcomms and fundraising to enterprise development.

MSC  has over two decades of practical, international experience that may just make the difference for you. So please get in contact.

Our mission is simple – to help values-based agencies develop; to better serve their audiences and achieve their income generation goals.


We reckon you know the problem you want to solve and what success looks like. Our job is to provide the new insight, the fresh impetus, the different angle or the plain and simple plan to make it happen. And do it cost-effectively.


We are only happy when you have the knowhow and confidence to head in the direction you want.

On a scale of one-to-one coaching and team development to keynote speeches and stadium gig presentations, our natural habitat is the former. We prefer to work intensively with teams and individuals but at their own pace. We love to provoke excellence and bring out the best in people. And, if the people aren’t available, we can provide the concierge services to help make it happen.

... good at engaging everyone in the solution so that staff develop and improve together. Working with Ashley has been a Master Class for the whole team!

Here are some of the places where we’ve been involved in one-to-one consultancies or capacity building workshops:

  • Brazil

  • Egypt
  • Hungary
  • India
  • Italy
  • Kenya
  • Korea
  • Macedonia
  • Malaysia
  • Nepal
  • Sri Lanka
  • Philippines

  • South Africa
  • Thailand
  • United Kingdom
  • USA

… or how much will it cost? The not very helpful answer is – it depends!


Our approach is to cut the string into lengths that work for you. This means setting clear deliverables at the outset each designed to add value to the enterprise.


Unless the requirement is very precise, there is always a menu of options to select from, to add or takeaway as circumstances dictate.


Costs are normally time (per day, per week, per month) or project based. The rates vary according to the nature of the contract and the market price. We believe we offer good value for money. And if we think you can get the job done better elsewhere we’ll tell you.
