Scott’s career has been focused on promoting how technology “really can change the way we live, work, learn and play,” she said. The capabilities of the Kloudspot platform impressed her, in particular how companies can use it to enrich lifestyle experiences, workspace and education experiences and health and safety services, including health, PPE and density monitoring during the coronavirus pandemic.
“The world today is at a unique inflection point,” said Scott, “one where everyone and everything leaves digital breadcrumbs that—when combined with AI—can enable organizations to create meaningful human interactions in the physical world, That has to be one of the most inspiring stories not yet told, and I am so honored to help Kloudspot tell that story and help the world plan to re-open safely.”
Scott serves on several boards, including the Bay Area CMO Governing Body for Evanta, a Gartner company, the Board of Advisors for FarmWise, and The Overground Railroad Project. She’s also a mentor with the Global Mentorship Initiative, and a marketing advisor for Watchpoint Logistics.
