In 2018, Simon coached me with public speaking, style, helped write my pitch, and gave me every imaginable tip to manage my nerves, present with esteem, conviction and win over the audience - with his help I went on to pitch to 3,000 people and win the World Social Enterprise competition. I cannot recommend him more highly to any CEO or senior executive looking to perfect their public speaking and win over an audience.
