Opening keynote speaker for IGD's Leading Edge Conference

Queen Elizabeth ll Centre, Westminster, London

"In helping us prepare for a series of investor-critical presentations, Simon worked one-to-one with our entire team of speakers over several months.

He made a huge difference, helping them speak with a confidence I've not seen before. Key stakeholders from the audience made a point of commenting on how impressed they were by the value and impact of the presentations.

Simon has made a significant and permanent difference to our people's effectiveness as speakers."

Nic Humphries, Senior Partner, HgCapital, London


 In 2019 I had the pleasure of working with Simon while pitching at the final of The Venture, the most important competition for social entrepreneurs. Simon not only helped me to deliver a perfect pitch to an audience of 2,500 people, he also helped me to improve my body language and storytelling abilities.

I am very certain that I won that contest thanks to Simon's help."
