“Simon really did justice to our event facilitating the debate in our two business panel sessions with wit and guile. He listened carefully to answers and has a great skill in converting jargon into simple language so the audience can understand more easily. He has a great sense of humour and is very quick ‘on the uptake’ and does not miss a trick. Our delegates really enjoyed his being part of our annual event.”
