Simon has spent 20 years in the digital marketing world and prior to that around 10 working 'pre-digital' (remember when people used to buy newspaper adverts :-) helping small medium and enterprise businesses understand and take advantage of the opportunities digital can bring their companies. He is now CEO at Motionlab, Orvelo and Motionlab Interactive, a group of creative, marketing and tech businesses that are founded on the obsession with data and results.

Simon is a huge believer in sharing the knowledge, the knowledge of what works and what doesn't work in our switched-on world. Over the years he has developed several models that are based on evidence derived from the most successful companies he has worked with, Simon takes these models and implement them at Board level for organisations that are driven by the ambition to succeed. This has led Simon to become an established public speaker for organisations such as Boost and Vistage Worldwide and being on panels where tech, marketing or entrepreneurship is the focus. he is also an Enterprise Ambassador for Lancashire Forum. As well as business life Simon is a family man and spends the majority of his spare time with his family outdoors or playing his guitar at local festivals and open mic nights!
