After a wobbly start getting knocked out in the first round of an under 9s football tournament, Simon has gone on to find considerably more success in the world of advertising. After working at a number of London’s top agencies he moved to Iris, helping build the company from a group of 50 to a 400+ agency with offices around the world. His diverse work has been recognised at all the major award shows; from keeping builders safe in the sun with a range of suncream paint pots to notching up a Top 10 most-watched ad on YouTube for adidas. He has yet to win a medal for his efforts in football.
