“The presentation was really well received, I had lots of great feedback afterwards. Simon provided supportive feedback in a safe environment; this allowed me to build my confidence in presenting and public speaking. The support was outstanding, helping me prepare and practice for the big day. I had a fear of presenting to large groups, but with Simon’s support I am much more confident. My next goal is to speak at a large conference at the end of the month. Thanks again for all of the support, it really helps my confidence”.

Simon has been such a support in my journey to becoming a confident and comfortable public speaker. His encouragement and wisdom has been invaluable; I’ve not only learnt from watching him, but also from his very insightful feedback. If you’re thinking about mentoring with Simon, I’d highly advise you to go for it!


Simon is perceptive, reads people well, has a natural gift for communicating and is adept at helping others maximise their potential. His understanding of the craft of speaking is profound.
