Having an illustrator at a conference, event or meeting is a great way to reinforce the key points. Often people remember visuals better than they do words. Also, humour can make difficult point that seem stark or cold in words. I find that delegates have their favourite drawings to photograph and take back to their teams, helping them translate the messages of the day, and the whole artwork is very often displayed after the event in the foyer or offices of the company...
Simon has an insight, wit and creative flair that is rare and fabulous. I have worked with Simon for several years and he always nails what I need. He is passionate about getting it right, challenges me to create an even better result and adds huge value to the whole process. Whether it’s in his role as a cartoonist, as an illustrator or actor you will not be disappointed. On one project Simon prepared some amazing pre conference cartoons to get everyone in the right frame of mind, he acted in some hugely insightful sketches and was present throughout capturing moments in cartoon form as we went….what a package!

Imaginative, witty and engaging, Simon very quickly put people at their ease and worked with them to ensure their thoughts and ideas were captured. His cartoons helped encapsulate our learning succinctly and memorably, even when the themes were both broad and complex.

Many thanks again for making such an inspired contribution to the day - it was really appreciated by everyone. The laughter was a wonderful balm for some bruised folk - and very cathartic for the school as a whole.
