More background about your guide, Scott Murphy:
Scott grew up in a rural farming area of Tasmania. There were great streams in the back yard and his family often traveled up to the lake country when they could. His parents and grandparents were all hard-working salt of the earth type people and all connected well with nature. All were some sort of small business operators, farm managers, kitchen managers, and hard labor workers over their time. Those values steered Scott through many successful and sometimes testing careers in retail, management, hospitality, tourism, accounting, consulting, training as well as involvement in the motor industry with ownership of a state-wide car detailing franchise system.
He acknowledges that he is happy to have this great opportunity to follow his passions and enjoy the fantastic nature and people here in Tasmania. He sees his role as an opportunity to explore ways with clients to achieve the outcomes they desire, using the processes he’s trained, certified and experienced in.
His qualifications include an Advanced Diploma of Business – Accounting, Certification as a NLP Practitioner and Coach, Certified Workplace Trainer and Teacher, Small Business Management Certification and is a member of the NLP Association of Australia, the Institute of Leaders and Management, the Trout Guides and Lodges Tasmania, an accredited tourism operator with EcoStar Accreditation as well as being a member of the International Institute of Complimentary Therapists.
His upbringing in a small country town in the midlands of Tasmania was fortunate and he was blessed enough to experience farm life and the country. However, at an early age, his family moved closer to the comforts of populated areas. He schooled and played sport like many others and went on to work in kitchens and the motor industry before settling into a junior management position in a retail department store.
Over the next years, he worked his way up to store manager and was lucky enough to open many new stores in Tasmania and some in Victoria. Once he moved on from this stage, he finalised all of his qualifications in business, accounting, management and training so that he could open his own consulting service offering accounting, bookkeeping and management consulting services to local businesses. For a while he even moved way left field into a master franchise car detailing operation. Scott has since gained qualifications in personal therapy, life coaching and counselling and now combines all of the above skills and experiences and when not fly fishing, he runs a Consultancy Business called All Round Guide out of Launceston, Tasmania.
