Simon provided our team with thought provoking insights which helped us to gain a greater perspective and understanding of the changing world of work. These insights have since provoked a deeper level of discussion between us around the external factors impacting the decisions we make as a management team.

I have worked with Simon on numerous occasions. We ran a sophisticated Leadership Program and Simon was a regular contributor, running a very good, thought provoking session on the views/expectations of those individuals just coming into the work environment – and how best to communicate/align with them. Simon’s segment of the program was always well received – very positive feedback. He always delivered.
