Scott Sammons

You could call me a bit of an information geek and welcome to Lighthouse IG! Below is a summary of what Lighthouse IG is all about, our experience and skills to date and how we operate to deliver the best value services to you and the world we live in.

I have worked with the governance and management of information for a number of years across various sectors and have a passion for ensuring information is protected while at the same time helping you achieve your goals! Throughout our time together, you will develop the tools, skills and confidence to take action.

My way of supporting you is to support you in becoming the information confident organisation you want to be. You are unique and so your support and governance framework should be too. We don’t follow a ‘template’, or ‘one size fits all’.

Whether you have an existing improvement programme underway or an idea that you want to see through to fruition get in touch!

Lighthouse IG is listed on the Allowlist register of trusted providers for GDPR & Information Governance related services. This allows me to verify my work and my client references.

Lighthouse IG is both a member of the Essex Chambers of Commerce and partner with them to deliver Data Protection training and guidance for their members throughout Essex.

IPSE, the Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed, is the voice of the UK’s self-employed population who make up one in seven people working today.

NOYB (none of your business) uses best practices from consumer rights groups, privacy activists, hackers and legal tech initiatives and merges them into a stable European enforcement platform. As a member, I support #MakePrivacyReal.

ANLP (Asssociation of Neuro-Linguistic Programming) is the UK’s leading professional body for registered and practising NLP Therapists and Master Practitioners. This membership allows me to see therapy and coaching clients individually or as as part of a wider team piece of work. 

How can I help you succeed?

Information and data is what drives every single organisation in the world. But it is often something that is neglected or assumed that it will always be there and will always be good quality.

Through information you can learn more about your organisation, your areas of weakness and your opportunities to grow and expand.

In this short interview, hear from me on how information can help you and how I can support you to succeed.

Skills to support your success


Through analysis of your data flows I can determine how information works within your organisation and how your processes are operating. Like water through a plumbing system, I can soon spot the leak.


I can lead or support a team, initiative or project from scoping through to completion. Like a river, sometimes it leads and sometimes it follows.


You give a little, you get a little. You get a little, you give a little. Like all things in life, to achieve a goal it takes the ability to listen, learn, and meet people in the middle to agree an outcome and progress forward.


I believe in guiding staff on how to utilise information as part of their everyday role. Through various means suited to the person, I can educate, inform and guide people to make the most of their information and new skills.


If food is the language of love, I wonder what the language of information could be? From communication at all levels via various means I can work with front line workers up to the CEO and be clear on our message.


Information management has a reputation for being boring. We respect that, but find ways to change that. So far from it being a chore, it is something every employee/volunteer should have as part of their business skills.
