Clients & Testimonials
"Business goes where it is needed and stays where it is welcome." - Anon
This is a special part of my site, somewhat self indulgent, and something I am very appreciative of; however when people generously take the time to create a testimonial, I want to share them so that you can see for yourself what people have said about me and how useful they have found my training. Indulge this humble training consultant sharing some of these with you.
My Wonderful Clients I've Trained & Coached
General Advocacy for SerialTrainer7
Simon has been delivering various training over the past few years for MediaClash in that time we have had a number of different companies also providing training. I can honestly none have managed to live up to Simon’s experience and style. Simon provides genuine insight into the business along with relatable and often challenging training that pushes both myself and my team. Highly recommended and a pleasure to work with.
Joss Phillips Advertising manager at Media Clash
Simon is unlike any trainer I have ever worked with - this is what makes him so unique and the sessions so enjoyable. He is extremely knowledgeable, obviously passionate and knows how to bring out the best in people. He offers techniques which get results and explains the methods behind them thoroughly. I find him captivating and he is very approachable, meaning I've never felt silly or awkward asking any questions. With a fantastic sense of humour, I feel like undertaking any training sessions with individuals other than Simon would pale in comparison. Would highly recommend.
Natalie Brereton Sales Executive at Crumbs Magazine
We worked with Simon to roll out a large scale digital learning initiative. He designs and employes comprehensive processes that drive amazing results. He has a real grasp of what needs to be done to make something a success.
Jonny Towsnend Operations Director. Circus Street
I’ve had the pleasure of attending 5 of Simon’s courses this year; Resilience, Customer Service, Presenting Magically, Closing Skills and Time Management & Personal Effectiveness. Each 1 has been beneficial to me in both my job role and my personal life. Simon is a brilliant trainer, especially because he makes everyone feel included and shows that he values their opinions. The courses are always great fun and I really appreciate the skills he has taught me. I look forward to many more training classes with Simon in 2019!

Dean Cracknell Brand Marketing Manager. Srixon Sports Europe Ltd
I started at Future as part of the graduate scheme with no idea what to expect and very little sales training. I’m now approaching two years with the company and not a day goes by without using some element of the training I received from Simon.
Chris Furness Sales Executive. Future
After a long search finding the right training program for our Benelux sales team, we found a partner in Simon who really makes a difference to our business. Different levels throughout our organisation (from operational sales to sales management) have benefited from a rich and down-to-earth content presented in very enthusiastic and interactive training sessions. Combining a general program with individual coaching and focus on specific area’s resulted in a very intense and attractive program for all.

Maxine Poole Head of Marketing and Communications. NHS Professionals
Simon was invaluable to myself, when I began to co-host a series of in-house training seminars. He really took the time to make me feel as if I could communicate quite complicated ideas effectively in a short space of time, even though I’d never hosted a large scale formal training session before.
Joss Hutton Digital & Print Project Manager
Simon is inspiring and motivating. He makes training fun and interesting whilst ensuring you take away skills which you can use both in and out of work. What also sets him apart is the support and follow up after the course to ensure you’re continual personal development. Highly recommend.
