Director, The Power of Events
United Kingdom

Simon is currently the immediate past chair of UKEvents having served as Chair during the pandemic. He has been involved with the partnership for over 12 years. He also served as an independent member of the Event Industry Board and a founding director of the Events Apprenticeship Programme Board.
