At the age of 15 Simon made his first formal presentation. It was as the main speaker in a 3 person team for the local heat of a national 'Youth Speaks' competition. Simon did not volunteer for this, but instead was entered by his English teacher due to his apparent need to say something about everything. Standing in front of a room of over 100 people about to make a presentation, he was absolutely petrified. Then he started, and he found that he loved it. What's more, he won that heat. What started off as no doubt a punishment, ended up igniting a passion.
Simon has carried on making presentations and influencing stakeholders in various guises ever since. During his career in corporate procurement he made numerous presentations to senior management to convince them of a certain course of action, at the same time honing his influencing skills whilst undertaking multi-million pound negotiations.
Once he moved into training, he found himself making sales presentations to potential clients. And, of course, there's his experience in making training presentations. Simon has now presented to well over 20,000 people. People from the likes of Google, Nike, Sony, Virgin, and Pfizer have heard Simon speak. These presentations have ranged from small informal affairs to making keynote speeches to over a thousand people. Simon has presented extensively across Europe, North America, South America and Asia.
With this bank of experience to draw from, Simon designed The Complete Presenter to be a one-stop-shop for anyone who wants to learn how to compel and engage others more successfully, whether they're a complete beginner or an experienced senior executive.
Simon also has a network of top class associate coaches who all have a wealth of presenting and training experience.
