Alastair Majury is a Business Analyst currently living in Dunblane, United Kingdom. Apart from his unwavering commitment to his career, Alastair finds himself most interested in philanthropic efforts, golf, and navigating the seamlessly endless majestic landscapes of Scotland.
Alastair’s passion for the game of golf came at a young age. Though initially inherited through his father, Alastair has come to find his own appreciation for golf over the years. If it hadn’t been for his father and, in particular, his love of golf, Alastair would have missed out on so many memorable occasions, both playing the game and watching it. Furthermore, what contributed to Alastair’s interest in the game of golf, was the history behind his local course Dunblane New Golf Club and its designer James Braid. James Braid, a Scotsman and five-time Open Championship winner between 1901 and 1910, has left an enormous legacy for golf in both the United Kingdom and Ireland. Braid courses range from prestigious tournament venues such as Carnoustie and Gleneagles to lesser known clubs in areas that one would not initially deem to be havens of high quality golf, but that is part of the charm of the Braid collection, and why so many golfers strive to experience every one. For that, Alastair finds himself most fortunate to live amongst and play on such respected courses.
Aside from golf, Alastair Majury deeply appreciates the seemingly mundane task of driving. For Alastair, driving is the chance to display and strengthen your mastery over a precision-made machine.
“We all know that executing the perfect heel-toe downshift or corner apex is a sensation that can linger for hours.”
With the constant hustle and bustle of daily life, Alastair finds jumping in the car and taking off on a drive around Scotland’s finest landscape most relaxing. Living close to Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park , Alastair Majury finds himself lucky to be wowed by the beautiful vistas along the shoreline of the loch. Driving further north, to the Grampian mountains, Alastair is able to enjoy the splendour of Glencoe before the uninterrupted view of Ben Nevis as he arrives into Fort William.
Ultimately, Alastair Majury loves trying new experiences and thrives on the unusual. Quickly bored by the predictable, Alastair Majury would rather jump right in and figure things out along the way than be constrained to a predetermined plan. Intellectually hungry from both a personal and professional standpoint, Alastair is constantly gathering knowledge regardless of practicality or usefulness.
Alastair is also a major proponent of philanthropy. He believes that one of the most important ways for us to create a more unified planet is by consistently reaching out and helping one another. He understands that helping out and donating to your community can take many shapes; whether it’s through monetary means or by volunteer work, getting out there and spending time healing your community will eventually help to heal the planet. First and foremost, he enjoys giving to local Scottish charities, however, he is certainly not opposed to donating to international organizations as well. Alastair Majury particularly enjoys donating to UNICEF, Cancer Research UK and the British Red Cross.
Just recently, Alastair Majury successfully completed the CISI Level 4 derivatives module, which tested his knowledge of a variety of subjects related to data science and business analysis.
