Simon is a very engaging presenter and your team will improve if they implement just 10% of what he presents.
Simon recently worked with our sales staff to improve their effectiveness. Feedback from all the group was very positive with many colleagues asking "what next". From my perspective, he really made me think about how I perform, how we as a team work as well as generating an environment in our workshop for possible new strategies. We had a great workshop and will be looking to work with Simon for some time.
Simon is an excellent facilitator and trainer. He takes time to understand the organisational objectives and potential obstacles. In facilitating, he keeps the team on track, but also know when to let the discussion flow. As a trainer, he is engaging and entertaining. His training is well structured and invokes positive and lasting change in behaviours.
