Testimonials 3

  • Simon’s presentation was relevant and insightful into how brands think and work to get their message across to consumers. He had great real world examples which the audience was able to relate to. It was easy to see how these examples applied to our business and clients, and how we could use them to improve the value we offer. Attendees found it to be informative, clear, concise, and engaging, with many considering his presentation to be one of the highlights of the off-site

  • I can’t express how thrilled we are about your work with our leadership team today. The buzz is still going… Community service IS about the bottom line… Support the mission, tell your story, empower the people: just a few buzz phrases I am hearing. I appreciate your time and thoughtful presentation and look forward to continuing this great work.

  • It takes a strong message to catch the attention of our customers, who are some of the most dynamic innovators and practitioners of digital strategy, marketing and media. Simon succeeded admirably, bringing the passion of his vision of “We First” capitalism to engaging and capturing the loyalty and attention of new customer who have expectations about what the organizations and brands in his/her life can do for them – on their time and terms. Simon went right to the heart of the matter in his keynote at our first customer conference, Engage 2014, and left all of us looking for more of his wisdom and insights.
