• A challenging but supportive day. I feel exhausted but for all the right reasons.

  • Simon has worked with us for 3 years to support our annual conference. He has a great way of giving feedback and encouragement. He has enabled us to develop as a team and the result on stage has been a significant improvement. It has meant that each individual's essence has shone through and the impact of the communication has been much greater. Working with Simon is a pleasure.

  • We've worked with Simon and his team for over 5 years - and plan to do so for the foreseeable future. The material is as engaging and relevant today as when he worked on the first project. Most importantly he understands the culture of our business, and I've often had feedback from delegates that they thought Simon and his team must have worked here at some point, as their understanding is spot on. Their style is a blend of easy to understand content, (on difficult communication issues) with good humour and a warm approach. They put delegates at ease - which creates a perfect learning environment. Their forum theatre technique has been a revelation within our approach to learning. The learning, through trial and error, comes about in a workshop that is fun and enjoyable. Experts in their field of communication - with great personalities to match - I couldn't recommend more highly.

  • What makes Simon Delaney Associates unique for me is the desire and ability to 'understand the brand'. They invest time to really get under the skin of challenges, to fully understand them and match the challenges to what they can offer. Simon is often my first point of call when I want to debate development needs as he brings an enlightening view and a wealth of knowledge to the debate. They deliver on their promises, are a joy to work with, and shape some seriously impactful development interventions.

  • I was invited to be a keynote speaker at a large tech conference in Istanbul for an audience of over 3000 attendees. I contacted Simon to hone the rough edges of my presentation and ensure I was coming across with clarity for a very international audience. The process that transpired over the next few hours was staggering. He persuaded me to remove almost all the words from my slides, relying on just one specific image per slide, and gave me the confidence and ability to speak in a more freehand, off the cuff manner as a result. The speech was incredibly successful, and I was able to stand apart from all other speakers based on the fact that I was the only person that the audience felt was actually addressing them, rather than reading to them. I can’t recommend Simon highly enough, and do so to anyone I meet that has speaking engagements ahead of them.
