Only a handful of people would have recognised the Simon Weston who headed out for the Falklands Conflict back in June 1982. But the face of Simon Weston who returned from the bombing of the Sir Galahad is recognised the world over, not for his disfigurement from 46% burns, but for his determination that has inspired courage and the will to excel in countless others.

Following his injuries, Simon's road to physical, spiritual and mental recovery saw him active in a number of highly successful ventures. His tireless charitable work earned him an OBE in the 1992 Queen's Birthday Honours.

Simon Weston's message is one of single-minded determination, to not only accept what is, but to turn that to your advantage. Simon's own career clearly demonstrates how a positive mental attitude can achieve great business goals.

Simon's irrepressible humour, infectious enthusiasm and immediately engaging personality have made him the number one choice of many companies who invite him back to speak time and again.

The audience was spellbound and everyone marked Simon Weston in the highest category (excellent) in the feedback forms. I don't think we could have chosen anyone better to bring our conference to a close.

Headteachers Conference

Simon was the best motivational speaker that we have ever had and scored 100% on the speaker table.


Simon's talk was inspirational, moving and in parts very funny. It was a great start to our day and he left leaving the clinicians in the audience with a lot to think about.

Royal College of Psychiatrists

Simon was amazing, the whole organisation was in tears and laughter with his speech he was so inspirational everyone was so touched by his speech.


Yesterday was fantastic and everyone I have spoken to was really blown away by Simon, his story and the messages he shared. We would have loved to have given him longer, and it was great that he did address all 650 or so of our staff. We really appreciated the time given to various groups of young people he saw, a brilliant day.

Helena Partnerships

Simon was absolutely brilliant and pitched his speech just where we wanted it – i.e addressing the children specifically as well as the wider audience. It's testament to him that not only did he hold them in thrall for 30 mins … but they all seem to have absorbed and remembered a lot of his key messages about self-belief and taking responsibility for getting the most out of life.

Oratory Prep School

Simon was fabulous and the response back from the team has been more than positive. Some said they had met their hero, one member of staff phoned his Dad and Simon spoke with him, couple of the girls cried. He was very funny as well and gave some really good messages.

Trident Social Investment Group

Simon was a massive hit with our guests and the only celeb we've had to get a standing ovation before he got to the stage.
