Simon founded AMG World in order to address the need for industrial organisations to harness technology and adapt it to ensure they are not left behind by the accelerating pace of change. Top down conferences were providing a narrative to get the process started.
AMG World’s mission is to tear up the PowerPoint Presentation and replace it with peer-to-peer interdisciplinary debate, criticism, interaction and solutions. Simon believes the ground zero of innovation is not the laboratory, but around the conference table, testing out one’s ideas.
Simon likes to relax with a pint in any of London’s many pubs. He is a vigorous armchair follower of sport with a special affection for Arsenal FC, live boxing and New England Patriots.
