Simon is no stranger to being in the spotlight having worked in the entertainment industry for over fifteen years as a presenter, facilitator, host & compere. With many prestigious events to his name, his most memorable was co-hosting the visit of Her Majesty The Queen & The Duke of Edinburgh to mark the jubilee celebrations. Simon is an in-demand host, working throughout the industry hosting many live events, corporate, charity & fashion shows throughout the North-East and UK. His most recent events include presenting for Noble Systems at the SNUG EMEA, working as the face of Goodmans & Cello TV, presenting the Great Run & Great Swim Series for Nova International, The Butterwick Ball and The Red Sky Ball. He has presented thirteen local Miss finals and has had the privilege to co-host the National Final of Miss Great Britain for the past two years. He is fully experienced working with autocue, talk back and green screen.
2015 is the 2nd year we have had the pleasure of having Simon as part of the hosting team at the Miss Great Britain Grand Final! Co-hosting along with the Miss Great Britain National Director Kate Solomons-Freakley, Simon has proven once again that he is a consummate professional. Simon has effortless charisma on stage, allowing him to come across as both incredibly talented but also approachable and down to earth. Simon has the ability to put finalists at ease during the daunting interview section of the final and is a star when it comes to inevitable ‘filling’ when called upon. We very much hope to work with Simon again in the future.
