Dr Alex Gapud.


Alex is an enthusiastic consultant with a passion for serving clients to create healthier and more effective work cultures. Using his background as a social anthropologist, he combines academic concepts on issues such as culture and social interaction with practical insight to produce effective client solutions. At the heart of his work is a desire to combine in-depth research with meaningful application.

Before joining us in 2020, Alex completed his PhD and a teaching fellowship in Social Anthropology at the University of Edinburgh, where he twice won university-wide awards as a tutor. He also has two Masters degrees (Theology and Social Anthropology) and worked in recruitment and training at non-profits in both Scotland and the US.

"The thing that makes me come alive is moving alongside people (whether clients or former students) and asking them: ‘Who are you? Where are you going? And how do I help you get there?’. I found this rationale made a world of difference for my students when I was teaching, and those questions embody both the nature of consulting and the values of scarlettabbott."
