Communication • Mediation • Regulation • Litigation
I work with organisations for whom solving the problem is not enough. They need to persuade an external audience that they have the right solution. Clients are often lawyers, regulators or those they regulate, but increasingly I work with professional service firms on their communications – and with others as this website shows.
In the 1980s, I set up one of the UK’s first forensic accounting and expert witness services. Since the mid-1990s, I have been a consultant to economic and financial regulators, for example developing the framework for actuarial regulation. Throughout both these periods, I have been a guest columnist in newspapers and professional journals as well as a writing skills trainer for professional firms and financial services organisations.
Simon is always very thoughtful and has insights which go beyond what others have managed to understand.

I qualified as a mediator in 2009. I have acted as a chair/facilitator for conferences, industry groups and private meetings. And I have sat as a decision-maker on professional tribunals and industry dispute-resolution services. I am a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries and a mathematics graduate of New College, Oxford.
