Simon Weston

What do you do to ensure your presentation has a lasting impact?

I simply want people to enjoy it and to take something away.

How did the corporate speaking begin?

Because I was asked – by organisations interested in my story, I cut my teeth and did a lot of charity speaking. I later got representation and support and it grew from there.

Which event has been your favourite and why?

My favourite was a trip to Turkey last year for a Wholesalers Conference. It was all down to the people, it’s what makes a good conference. As I was there for 3 days I was able to spend time with them and get to know them. Also speaking to Medical and pharmaceutical groups is a lot of fun and very rewarding. I’ve had a lot involvement with clinicians over the years, I have a great affinity to them, an empathy and respect. I owe my life to them.

If you could speak at any event, past or future, what would it be?

Something to do with the UN where I could make a difference on a larger scale.

Who would you most like to share a platform with?

With a speaker I vehemently disagreed with as it would be a great discussion.

What are your most frequently requested speaking topics?

Overcoming adversity, positivity, invest in yourself, growth. Self belief, setting goals and targets, appreciation of others – team building.

What can a typical corporate audience learn from your experiences?

To be a good leader Share glory Encourage and invest in others. Team building Self belief and coming back from somewhere where once you believed was impossible. It can be done!
