Biography

Scotty Mills is the highest-ranking black officer in the history of the Royal Marines and led Britain’s Commandos around the world. He shares his lessons of leadership and resilience working as a performance coach in the world of elite sport and business. As an advisor to the FA, he worked closely with Gareth Southgate, Harry Kane, and the England Football Team to help them reach the World Cup semi-final. 

Growing up in South London with many hardships, Scotty joined the Royal Marines by chance after ducking into their recruitment office to avoid a downfall. He worked his way up to become a Commando ‘Green Beret’ Officer, leading the Marines on operations around the world. He also acted as Head of Rehab, and ​​Head of Performance throughout his time, supporting recruits who needed retraining, rehabilitation and reintegration and guiding them to peak performance. 

Scotty has an international reputation for his ability to use his experience to inspire others and help them overcome their limitations. He continues to work with the nation's top sports teams and Olympic teams to develop innovative leadership, team cohesion and peak performance. His compelling journey highlights the power of human inspiration and his lessons on how to achieve impossible results and how to make a winning team are transferable to any organisation. His book Never Give In draws on his experiences in the Marines and shares how the ‘commando’ way of thinking provides elite performance and helps anyone reach targets and transform their way of thinking. 

A world record breaker for leading the Marines to break a long-standing Endurance Marathon World Record, Scotty was selected as an Olympic Flag Bearer at the London 2012 Olympic Games and has dined at Buckingham Palace with the Queen. He was also the recipient of a national award to honour him as the most inspirational serviceman across the entire Armed Forces community.
