The young entrepreneur taking the world by storm.

Technology has leveled the professional playing field. Now innovation can truly come from anywhere.

The tech-head prodigy behind BOP Industries, Scott Millar is a young entrepreneur taking the world by storm.

Compared to a young Steve Jobs after turning a year nine business project into a thriving business, Scott finished high school and turned down university scholarship offers and full-time job offers to run his company, BOP Industries, full time now with a growing presence around the world.

As a now 22-year-old, Scott has recently been named one of Australia’s top 30 CEOs under 30 years of age, Asia Pacific’s Inspiring Youth Leader for 2019, Queensland's Small Business Leader for 2021, Griffith University's Entrepreneur In Residence and an LGBT advocate and youth leader in Australia and overseas.

As a leading Australian keynote speaker and facilitator, Scott is passionate about how we can prepare young people for the ever-changing future of work, and how we as organisations can attract, retain and grow top young talent. As a 'digital native' Scott is frequently invited to speak at events covering topics around technology, innovation, entrepreneurship and how we can all find opportunity in the uncertainty.

Current Work:
BOP Industries is a leading Australian education company working to inspire the next generation of young innovators. Run by a passionate team of innovative educators, BP works with government, industry and schools to deliver future focused learning experiences aimed at preparing young people for the future of work. Since launching in 2018 the BOP team have worked with over 80,000 students and teachers across Australia, Malaysia, Singapore and China.

Scott is excited to be a co-founder of the festival as their team connect with innovative educators from across the country and around the world. With annual festivals delivered in Brisbane and Perth each year, the festival is designed to bring together educators, entrepreneurs, and industry leaders to explore the future of education and the future of work for young people.

Previous Experience:

Entrepreneur In Residence At Griffith University:With the need for 21st-century skills more apparent now more than ever Scott was named one of the inaugural ‘Entrepreneurs In Residence’ at Griffith University. This role saw Scott working with the Griffith Business School to develop and deliver a youth engagement strategy, lecture Griffth business students, create opportunities within the Griffith community and develop and grow the entrepreneurial strategy inside the university.

Brand Ambassador For The Australia China Innovation Centre: For almost two years, Scott had the opportunity to work closely with the Australia China Innovation Centre team in order to help Australian startups break into the Chinese market. With frequent tours to various cities throughout China, Scott was responsible for documenting the travels, outcomes of the collaborations, and promoting the impact of the centre in Australian startup networks.

Talking Points

Let's Get Digital: Engaging Young People In The Workforce

There is no secret that young people entering the workforce today are approaching their careers, their roles, and their day-to-day in very different ways to any other generation that has come before. With different working styles, communication preferences and intrinsic motivators, it's essential that managers at every level work to understand our next generation of digital natives so they can get the most out of the young people on their teams. In this presentation, fellow Gen Z and youth leader Scott Millar will be unpacking the trends for young people entering the workforce as we look at how we can build strategies to attract, retain, and empower top young talent in our teams.

From Likes to Loyalty: Connecting With The Next Generation Of Consumers

Making up 30% of the global population, Generation Z are growing up quickly and entering the market as a new segment of digitally savvy, socially conscious consumers that are willing to spend big with companies that capture their hearts, minds and most importantly, their attention. As the first true digital natives, Gen Z brings unique perspectives, values, and expectations that are challenging organisations to rethink how they market, engage and convert consumers. By unpacking real-world examples and data-driven insights, fellow Gen Z and youth leader Scott Millar will be sharing the most effective strategies employed by organisations around the world to target Gen Z as consumers.

The Future Of Work

Our world is changing faster now than it ever has before. With globalised teams, mass technology adoption, and shifting trends, all this change can be overwhelming and can leave us feeling uncertain about what our future might entail. In this presentation, Scott will unpack some of the trends we're noticing in the workforce of the future and how we can all find opportunity in uncertainty.

Key Takeaways:
- Our Accelerating Rate Of Change
- Workforce Trends For The Next 20-30 Years
- Jobs Of The Future & The Commoditisation Of Skills
- Strategies To Deal With Change

Innovation Unboxed: Unpacking Our Tech Revolution

Our world is changing faster now than it ever has before. With technology getting smarter, faster, smaller, and cheaper by the day it can be easy to feel left behind in our global technology revolution. To unpack all of this and provide a crash course in the good, the bad and the ethically ambiguous of tech today, digital native and young innovator, Scott Millar, will be cutting through the jargon to unpack the latest technologies shaping our world. With real-world case studies and relatable examples, Scott will share his insights into the role technology plays and will continue to play in our societies, and how we all can use technology to make our lives easier, more enjoyable, and more efficient.

Great Things Never Come From Comfort Zones

We as humans are wired to sit inside our comfort zones. We do something, we do it well, and then we decided to put in the same amount of energy time and time again to achieve the same output. But what would happen if we pushed ourselves just slightly outside of our comfort zones to do things differently, or aim slightly higher? Join young entrepreneur and chief troublemaker Scott Millar as he explores how we can all work to push ourselves outside of our comfort zones. Sharing his own story of building a technology startup as a high school student, Scott will unpack strategies we can all use to strive for greatness, whilst also sharing his experiences with things such as imposter syndrome, burnout, and unrealistic expectations.
Working with Scott is always an absolute pleasure. Scott knows his audience and engages them so effortlessly. It is honestly wonderful to watch. Something Digital Festival
