What the Clients Say:

“I have worked on stage internationally with Simon and have seen him speak a number of times. Simon has an excellent ability to engage, inspire and educate an audience while, at the same time, giving them life-enhancing skills.
When it comes to having a great speaker who is an authority and author on selling, negotiation and leadership, Simon Hazeldine is an excellent choice.”

Allan Pease - International Speaker, Leading Body Language Expert, Bestselling Author with 25 million books sold.

“Simon spoke at our “Property Super Conference”. He blew the audience away with his power, his valuable content, his humour and his motivational and professional style - he even upstaged Lord Alan Sugar! You need to book Simon if you want to get more out of your organisation or want to make more profit. He is thoroughly professional both on and off the stage and everyone in our conference crew likes working with him. However a word of warning - as you might expect from the author of "Bare Knuckle Negotiating" - he is tough on negotiating his speaking fee!

This was totally different. The day was fun, enjoyable and in my opinion (and others), entirely successful. I realise that this day has taught me something that I would never have grasped without going. It has changed my life to a great extent. This seminar is essential not only for our employees but for everyone.

Thank you for a great (and life changing) day"

David Hartnup - Distribution Manager, Inbev

“Every organisation these days needs to be looking for value for money. We have made an investment in your “Performance Leadership” master class on a number of occasions now. Participants were given insights and ideas that could help them be more effective at work, deal more positively with the challenge of change, and build better relationships with both the public and colleagues. The overwhelming feedback has been that the sessions were inspiring, thought provoking but above all practical in helping our officers and staff make a positive difference. The evaluation sheets were amongst the highest scores we have seen as an organisation. I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your performance philosophy to any organisation.”

Inspector Shaun Bradbury - Force Talent Manager, Merseyside Police
