Praise

“I would like to thank you for your role as facilitator and MC at the Department of Transport and Main Roads DG Customer Led Innovation Challenge. Your role was integral to making the day a success and was greatly appreciated by myself and all the participants.”
Neil Scales, Director General, QLD Department of Main Roads

“Simon supported me in a bid for new work. His creative skills and imagination helped us communicate our proposition in a highly effective way and I believe this helped differentiate us from our competition. He was very professional, organised and flexible which helped us meet a very tight deadline. I look forward to working with him again soon.”
Penny Shield, Executive Director, Ernst and Young

“Simon recently facilitated at our Senior Leaders Workshop – he was fantastic at keeping the group motivated and is very adaptable. He reads people extremely well so can quickly adjust the flow on the day to deliver the right outcomes – and ensures energy levels never wane.
His visual creations of the day / session add another valuable dimension to any event.”
Bridget Candy, Head of Internal Communication, METCASH

“I tasked Simon with the job of MC and session facilitator at a national conference for accountants – Not the easiest of audiences, yet Simon’s unharnessed energy ensured the room remained engaged for the entire 3 days. Simon’s is fun, dynamic and forces the listener to move outside their comfort zone (in the right way). I have had the pleasure of working with Simon on numerous occasions and would personally recommend him to anyone seeking a speaker with a difference.”
Wendy Doxey, Practice Manager, Hayes Knight (SA)

“We called on Simon to help us with an internal event we held recently. From the outset he was brilliant, from thoroughly understanding our needs through to fulfilling his role as MC. Simon was able to engage the audience, inject energy and keep everyone entertained. The feedback from attendees was exceptional and left the crowd wanting more. I would have no problems recommending Simon.”
Shane Muarenko, Agile Coach, Commonwealth Bank

Simon facilitated and graphically recorded our recent EY Oceania Infrastructure Advisory conference attended by 145 people. Simon had everyone up and interacting with others and kept the positive energy up in the room from the introduction through to introducing all the speakers right through to the end of the second day.
I ran into a gentleman attending a conference next door to ours and he asked me if we had a comedian because everyone was laughing and sounded like they were having a great time. He jokingly asked to join in because it sounded like more fun than the event he was attending.
I doubt our conference would have been as successful without Simon and everyone loved him, and we have quite a diverse team.
Lara Patterson, EA, Ernst and Young

Simon and his team designed and delivered workshops and visual facilitation activities for the entire leadership team (200 or so) to explore the vision for the new city of Canterbury Bankstown.The outcome was a visual representation of our new organisation, what we do and how we deliver services to our community which will be essential to driving our organisation forward. Simon displayed excellent customer service and worked across many areas of our organisation with our staff to ensure the vision captured a broad range of views and perspectives.

I had the opportunity to work with Simon to bring to life our Values Week. Entitled “Seeing is Believing” Simon both educated and entertained our employees through graphic facilitation workshops. He empowered all participants to connect with their perception of the SA Water values through visual communication. Simon and his team provide a fun, intelligent, inspiring and engaging approach to learning that gets employees to reconnect with their inner creative. Simon’s authentic approach with people is evident as is his commitment to ensuring that he delivers valued outcomes for his clients. I look forward to having the chance to work with Simon in the future.
Kathryn Gallina, Director People and Culture at Business SA

“Just wanted to say a huge thank you for work at the conference last week, the day was excellent and the feedback we are receiving about you and the overall day is the best ever! I think you were a great addition both years, you kept the exercises different each time which certainly helped and I think staff were all really happy, particularly the way you managed the event.”
Courtney Aspland, Manager Marketing and Media, Marketing and Sales, TAFE QLD East Coast

“I brought Simon in to a client site to run a 3 hour workshop for 25 Business Improvement folk on visual facilitation (How-to-do). He was awesome. Super easy to work with, and excellent facilitation of the workshop itself. The next day I walked into a number of rooms where the project teams had taken the skills and their new found confidence and illustrated key messages of their initiatives. It was quite staggering (after only 3 hours!). Weeks later the new skills are still being used and the team is communicating much more effectively with their stakeholders. Highly recommend!”
Jennifer Frahm, Senior Consultant, Personal Banking, Business Improvement NAB

“This is the very best program I personally have ever experienced. Thanks so much Simon, I believe you have found your calling, not just in art and facilitation but bringing a whole bunch of people together that would not normally associate. I couldn’t rave about you highly enough. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.”
Brenda Sellers, Qld Management Team, BlueScope Steel

“The feedback has been nothing short of fantastic. Again thanks Simon for pulling off what will be a memorable night and of course now the bar for next year’s conference is set very high. Great job and really enjoyed working with you.”

“Wow! What an impact our 2 days with Simon has had on our team. The team are constantly thinking outside the square for business improvement ideas and ‘acting’ more creatively. This is an absolute strength to this team and Sanitarium, and we are already seeing the business results. Well done and we can’t wait for our next session in April.”
Darren Watts, National Sales Manager, Sanitarium

“Ongoing value of the training we participated in with you has been amazing! And the few of us who were a part of the original training group are keen to introduce the other members of our team to the experience we all rave about. Thanks once again for an amazing experience, the best training I have ever done.”
