Simon is regularly invited to speak both nationally and internationally about his experiences of leadership, training and culture change within healthcare. As a passionate and motivational speaker he inspires others to challenge their own preconceived thoughts and behaviours, in a unique and honest way. By reflecting on his own experiences - and his own shortcomings - Simon examines the current issues faced within the NHS with humour and integrity, and encourages others to join him on his journey to make the world of healthcare a safer, happier and more inclusive place for staff and patients alike.
