“I have worked with Simon on a number of occasions, most recently on a very complex c-level, global, multi-language brand research project. He is an absolute joy to work with. He is extremely knowledgeable, understands the requirements/brief, suggests alternatives to get the best from your project and delivers results! All the while managing your expectations, in a calm, friendly and very patient approach. He was in total control – making life less stressful! I would highly recommend.”

Jaki Bowden, Head of Brand, Amdocs


“I’ve worked on and off with Simon for the last 20+ years, and throughout this time he has been a consistent source of savvy analysis, ideas, and inspiration as I’ve built vendor and partner brands/awareness. Simon has masses of integrity, is highly responsive, and brings value in so many ways. He also “sharpens the saw” continuously – staying up to date on market developments, trends and hot topics. I’d recommend Simon in a heartbeat”

“I worked with Simon on a high priority market research project over a year ago. Despite the complexity and the surrounding culture, Simon shone through with his experience and ability to focus in on what was most important. I was frequently glad Simon was on side to help distil requirements and insights and translate them into next steps and concrete actions. Simon also excelled in project management, finding ways to motivate and cajole excellence at every step. I heartily recommend Simon and I look forward to my next project with him.”
