Alana Stott MBE
Author, Producer, Publisher, Philanthropist, Entrepreneur
A one-woman “media machine” who is also a dedicated philanthropist and entrepreneur, Alana Stott founded and developed Wolfraven Omnimedia as a vehicle to help tell amazing and inspirational stories, including her own, while fiercely advocating for causes aimed at making the world a better place. With 2023 shaping up to be a year of major film, television and book releases for Wolfraven Omnimedia, Stott is showing no signs of slowing!
Stott has written the game-changing business and philanthropy book, “How to Ask for Money;” her powerful memoir, “She Who Dares;” and a series of empowering children’s books – all to be published in 2023. She is also in the process of producing multiple television series and film projects, including a high-profile collaborative streaming series that turns “reality TV” on its head, a feature-length documentary about the triumph of the human spirit, and an international suspense thriller with a theme of female empowerment.
Her storied international philanthropic work has included tireless efforts on behalf of dozens of charitable organizations. She has devoted thousands of hours of her time to numerous non-profits as an advisor and fundraiser, raising millions of dollars for causes such as mental health and the fight against human trafficking.
Stott has spent more than 25 years developing and overseeing the growth of a variety of business of varying sizes from an array of industries. With a uniquely diverse and accomplished resume, (Stott’s achievements have ranged from dishwasher to travelling salesperson, debt collector, bodyguard, security specialist, hotel manager, bank manager, former Mrs. Scotland, CEO of an intelligence-based security firm, non-profit consultant, writer and TV series producer), she is a firm believer that nothing is impossible or out of reach.
In 2018, Stott raised $1.3 million dollars for a mental health awareness campaign at the request of Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex and Stott’s husband Dean Stott, a double world record-breaking cross-country cyclist, TV presenter and former UK Special Forces Operator. This was not her first stint in fundraising. Much like her working life, her business and philanthropic career paths started early.
Stott qualified as a Ship Security Officer and one of the first women to receive the Company Security Officer designation, qualifying her to run security on any vessel at sea. She is also a fully-qualified Close Protection Officer. Stott is an honorary member of The Special Boat Services Association, the UK equivalent of The Navy’s Seal Team 6. She has organized multiple grand red carpet events to raise funds for injured special forces soldiers and their families.
In her non-profit work, Stott sources, researches and meets with potential donors personally, builds relationships and has received multiple accolades for her work, such as ‘Fundraiser of the Year’ (2018) and Scottish Businesswoman of the Year runner up (2019).
Alana was award the title of Member of The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) on the King’s Honor List 2023 for her work supporting vulnerable women and mental health awareness.
