John Simonett: After Dinner Speakers
Ex-teacher and former rugby player, John Simonett combines humour, his phenomenal trained memory, and the latest insights from neuroscience and psychology to connect with his audiences without detracting from the power of his message: we can all become more creative, effective and successful by tapping into the brain’s hidden logic. His unique presentations are tailored and brim with real-world business applications.
He is known for his attention to detail, professionalism and experience, born out of over 3,000 performances where he cleverly combines the latest information from neuroscience and psychology with real-world business applications.
His signature keynote address 'Restless Curiosity' provides unique insights into learning, thinking, positive psychology and creativity. His message is straightforward and compelling: we can all become more creative, effective and successful by tapping into the brain’s hidden logic in order to unlock our vast potential.
Passionate about success, John not only inspires, informs and charms audiences - he’s also very funny!
A former schoolmaster and sportsman, John was educated at Fettes College, Edinburgh, and obtained a First Class honours degree from Bristol University, majoring in Psychology. He played Premiership Rugby Union and was a cup winner with Gloucester against the Leicester Tigers at Twickenham.
While his main objective is to be funny, clean and entertaining, John specialises in ‘tailored’ presentation and likes to be able to make his remarks relevant to the group in question.
In fact, the more ‘inside knowledge’ he can acquire beforehand about a company's people, products and philosophy, the better!
John has a phenomenal, trained memory and uses this to telling effect - he does his ‘homework’ for each event and, where possible (and if appropriate), learns numerous names, details and relevant company information, which he skilfully weaves into his speeches.
Equally at home with an audience of 500 or at a board meeting for 12, John's charismatic personality and presence, together with his unique combination of humour and memory, allows him to connect with audiences without detracting from the power of his message.
