"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


I employed Simon for one-on-one presentation skills coaching, as I was required to speak at my company's annual conference. With Simon's advice, coaching and guidance, I gained valuable knowledge and confidence which made a huge difference to, and significantly improved, my delivery on the day. Simon is a great coach, and I will certainly consider using his services within my business going forward.
