Simon Ekin

Have you had enough? Let's talk

I’ve been helping people to develop themselves and their leadership, communication, productivity and business skills for the last 22 years, through coaching them personally, speaking to audiences and training groups.

I am relentless, committed and compassionate; lessons I learned from: cycling 13,000km from Cape Town to England, serving as an officer in the British Army for 5 years, cycling from England to Scotland as a 16 year old, writing a book called The Art of Courage – Debunking the courage myth, delivering 365 speeches in as many days to promote courage, and founding Phisa, a project who’s mission is the transformation of South Africa; one which works for all people.

"Working with Si significantly pushes the boundaries of what's possible for you in all areas of your life."

"As Director Leadership for the Army and as Commandant, I hear a great many leadership talks. Simon spoke at the 30-year Sandhurst reunion of his intake as the after-dinner speaker in October 2017. His talk really hit the mark."
Director Leadership (Army) Commandant, Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst
“Courage is easy to talk about but hard to put into practice. The team continues to talk about your approach and the strength it takes to do that which you do."
CEO, Tiger Brands
“Your talk was such an inspiration. It easy to internalise and attempt to act on, on a daily basis, thank you for that.”
