I cannot thank you enough for your fantastic session with the MBA Alumni! The crowd loved it and even over dinner people were still talking about how it triggered them to think deeper about themselves and what they are doing today.

“I really enjoyed your final session at E-motive! Within a few minutes I had shared my joy, sadness, doubts, and fears with a complete stranger, and, without going over the top, made a few life affirmations. All this before I even knew his name or his organisation. Needless to say – it was one of my favourite endings ever to a conference.”

Simon is a passionate storyteller and an expansive soul. Bridging the worlds of business and social change, Simon is a deep thinker and synthesizer. A generous community builder and advocate for transformational storytelling. Plus, he’s got a charming accent.
Simon is a born storyteller and trainer. His deep passion for the power of stories is contagious, and enables him to turn even the most reluctant trainee in an engaging storyteller.
For a long time, finding our ‘corporate story’ was a somewhat abstract item on our to-do list. Simon turned what seemed a chore into an engaging workshop, in which we used our personal mission and experiences as a starting point for our corporate story. Not only did his approach lead to very concrete and inspiring stories, it also allowed us to get to know each other on a deeper level – and have tons of fun!
