Professional background

Simon has been in the people development industry since the start of his career. He realized at a  young age he wanted to help leaders realize their vision and began his career as a leadership development consultant and facilitator. After gaining depth experience of design and delivery of a wide variety of people development methodologies in a group context, Simon specialized into becoming an executive coach in 2006.

Simon then led a team of 35 coaches for 8 years, responsible for commercial growth, supervision, design and account management. During this time, he gained in-depth and diverse experience of the many applications of coaching into business. In 2014, decided to specialize in executive business coaching as a freelancer.
