Testimonials for Scott Pape

Scott was great. He definitely added value to our program and worked in well with the other presenters. However, the single best thing about him was that he was exceedingly professional - he did his preparation, checked in about his audience characteristics with us beforehand, tailored his presentation to the audience, and even checked in for feedback as he went.

Having Scott Pape at the University Open Day speaking on the global economic crisis as well as his own personal career brought people from far and wide. We ended up having to turn people away. Scotts’ insight into the global economic crisis was greatly received … people (who don’t have a background in economics) found him easy to follow and informative.
University of Tasmania  

Your presentation was outstanding and the feedback that we have received to date about your presentation confirms this. Delegates felt inspired to consider change and the comments they have been providing confirm our thoughts, you were a great choice! Sincere thanks for making my work so easy and for taking the time to help us at such a key event for our organisation.

Scott Pape's Biography

Scott Pape is your ‘go to’ man when you need finance matters explained in English! He is highly regarded by peers and clients on matters including superannuation, investment, taxation, insurance and economics. An engaging and motivational speaker Scott Pape ‘keeps it real.  

Scott Pape is a successful stockbroker and a former investment advisor with one of Melbourne's leading finance firms EL & C Baillieu. Scott Pape is also a media commentator, author and host of his own radio show titled The Barefoot Investor on 90.7 Syn FM.  

But it is Scott Pape's unique ability to combine his knowledge, experience and infectious humour that makes him such an in demand keynote speaker. He has used these attributes to "make money sexy" and deliver street-wise strategies to people who simply don't do finance.  

Scott Pape understands the pressures faced by young people on a day-to-day basis and the extremely competitive economic environment in which they are surrounded. He understands that having a degree is by no means a ticket to a successful career and financial happiness, so when he gives advice, in his own words, he "keeps it real". Scott Pape appears as the financial expert on the SBS TV show The Nest, which follows three very different Australian families as they participate in a social experiment, to find out how prepared (or unprepared!) their children are for living sustainable, independent futures.  

In addition, he regularly appears on TV shows such as A Current Affair, Sunrise, Good Morning Australia and the Today Show, as well as on radio providing practical information on all things money-related. Scott also writes a weekly financial column for News Limited papers in all capital cities.  

Scott Pape's first book, The Barefoot Investor (2004) was an overwhelming success. The book has since been printed in the UK, Holland and India and in 2007 a revised and updated version was released in Australia. Sir Richard Branson probably said it best when he stated, 'The Barefoot Investor makes finance fun'.  

Ultimately Scott's ability to relate to, and make a connection with the young Australians of today, is fast tracking his way to becoming an Australian celebrity.
