Simon was a speaker for us at TEDxWinchester 2022. He is utterly captivating, down to earth and brutally honest in his delivery. Everyone in the room gave him their full attention. Simon always has a story. I can't sit with him for more than 2 minutes and he is back to storytelling - and there's always a challenge in the story too. Simon is professional, dedicated and can craft a talk that appeals directly to the audience. I would highly recommend him as a speaker for events - conferences, awards, after-dinner speaker. Did I mention he is funny too? His humour and warmth come across in every word of his talk.

Simon is a phenomenal human being. We met when Simon came to speak at an event we were hosting at Facebook, at which point Simon totally blew away the crowd with his story. Simon has a powerful ability to captivate a room and land truly thought provoking messages through his bravery, resilience and humility. We have remained in touch through a mutual love for swimming and the outdoors! I can not recommend Simon enough; whether you are looking for an inspirational speaker or powerful perspective to motivate your team.
Simon is an inspirational speaker. He spoke at our lunch with wit and humility which is amazing considering his experience. If you are looking for a speaker about dealing with adversity or positive mindsets he is perfect. Thank you for inspiring us all!
