About Simon

Before setting up his leadership consultancy, he was Managing Director of a well-known sports marketing business for seven years.

Simon is regularly invited to speak on leadership and team building in complex and challenging environments and was featured in Fast Company Magazine’s ‘Who’s Fast in 2001′ selection of 16 business leaders.

I was impressed with the title of Fast Company’s article about him: I Can Only Compete Through My Crew. How true. Read the article at Fast Company or download a PDF here.

Before setting up talentsmoothie, Simon co-founded and built a successful leadership consultancy where he could put into practice what he preached. He worked at every level within large organisations all over the world including Royal Bank of Scotland, Credit Suisse, Savills and Anglian Water Group.
