PROCTER & GAMBLE NORTHERN EUROPE
We briefed the production of a 7-part podcast series on mental health to Simon and he went above and beyond to deliver us a 8-part series that will resonate with our employees at P&G helping them to build resilience and thrive. From the creation of topics and the identification of experts through to the interviews of our employees and the different creative formats employed, Simon has been simply outstanding – keeping us appraised on progress and delivering against budget & timings. One of our employees who was interviewed reflected on her experience and shared these thoughts which perfectly captures the sentiment: “I’ve never done anything like the podcast or even shared my story with anyone really so it was a such a rewarding experience for me too – I hope it helps someone out there! Simon was so lovely and really made me feel comfortable so it was much easier to share our messages with the P&G community!”. We honestly could not be happier with the end result - a massive heart-felt thank you to Simon for this quality production.
UK LEAD NEGOTIATOR FOR UN CLIMATE CHANGE CONFERENCE UK 2020
Simon gave a fascinating and lively talk to the team - combining insights, anecdotes and quotations from his catalogue of Don't Tell Me The Score interviews and his own research. In a wide-ranging conversation, Simon shared nuggets on purpose, values, resilience, stoicism, team cohesion, handling pressure, vulnerability and enjoying the journey: all valuable lessons for our work and for our lives outside of the office. Feedback was universally positive and it has prompted calls for more 'rebel ideas' (another of the topics covered!).
DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS AT GUY’S AND ST THOMAS’ NHS FOUNDATION TRUST
It was a pleasure and honour to have Simon speak at our NHS leadership event. Simon's talk was engaging and informative, and left us all with so much to think about. As well as the theory, Simon gave us practical leadership advice that we can apply in our roles in the NHS. His informal style went down really well, and his injection of humour and anecdotes kept us all engaged. Feedback was overwhelmingly positive, but was best summed up by one of the delegates who simply wrote "…cracking talk from Simon"!
It was really good to work with Simon at our 2019 Esquire Townhouse event where he hosted an onstage conversation with Sir Ben Ainslie, looking back at his life and career so far. I came across Simon via his insightful BBC podcast and he showed the same attention to detail and professionalism when preparing for our event. On the night he developed a good rapport with both Ben and the audience, which only added to a successful evening.
SENIOR DIRECTOR AT AUTODESK
Simon's presentation to our EMEA Inside sales team was incredibly well received and the subject matter was ideal. A wide variety of topics and examples for sports fans but also those less interested in Sport and more into self-management and wellness.He skillfully engaged a diverse audience for the full two hours, and from the feedback alone, I am certain that our investment will pay many dividends. The Q&A calls after the event were a fantastic bonus too.
Simon came into Fruit Towers (innocent HQ) and shared some great insights about leadership, personnel resilience and the importance of a growth mindset. The team really enjoyed the engaging and lively talk and we came away with useful learnings to take back into our day jobs. It also provided good diversity of thought from outside the world of smoothies & juice.
It was a pleasure to meet Simon and he is a very inspirational speaker. We all enjoyed the talk very much and took a lot from it to think about and try to change for the better. - https://www.royalmarsden.nhs.uk/
