Organisational design and leadership.

I specialise in designing and leading effective organisations with a focus on progressive management approaches. The ways many organisations still work were designed for a stable, slow and predictable world that no longer exists. There are better ways to create organisations that help people do more meaningful and sustainable work.

What I do...

I’m Chief of Staff at publicly listed design and technology services business TPXimpact (TPX). I’m a trustee at The Caldecott Foundation and my non-executive experience spans tech businesses GreenShoot Labs, Deeson and OpenDialog.

What I'm up to...

Every month I publish monthnotes – a summary of what I’ve been up to over the past month.

“Simon is a superb operational leader.

As MD and then CEO of Deeson he presided over the implementation of a stack of initiatives which not only prepared the way for substantial scaling but also readied the company for its acquisition by The Panoply.

As Deeson’s chairman at the time he was MD I was incredibly impressed by Simon. I would hire him myself like a shot if I had the chance.”

“Simon offers calm and authoritative leadership. It goes almost without saying that he is a strong communicator – actually, he’s a natural – warm, persuasive, charismatic.”

Marius Kynaston

“Simon is an analytic and strategic thinker who is able to communicate his ideas and insights clearly. He was able to bring unique and important perspectives on redefining our customer experience.”

“Never before have I been managed by someone so committed to a team’s growth and autonomy; Simon has a unique ability to bring the best out of the people around him. He is extremely knowledgable, and exudes a calm and measured confidence in any situation.

I have always been impressed by Simon’s ability to hold a room and bring people together, with a perfect balance of knowledge and curiosity.

Simon is an expert in his field and passionate about his work.”
