About Simone

I am a human connection specialist inspiring people to connect in a world thirsty for connection. My work on the topic places particular emphasis on the intersection between a lack of human connection and mental health issues as well as connecting through technology in the post-pandemic world.

My keynotes have been described as deeply moving “oratory movies,” weaving together story and my diverse cross-cultural experiences. My clients have included: Salesforce, SAP, VMWare, UBS, DBS, Google, Ted X, Great Eastern, AIA, Manulife, The United Nations, Braze, Everise, Ovo and many more. I have been featured in CNBC, CNA Lifestyle, Money 89.3FM, Elle, Harpers Bazaar, Thrive Global, Yahoo! Finance, CNN and many more.

In 2019 I was awarded the Asia Youth Women Netizen Award by the Asian Marketing Federation. In 2020 I was named one of the Top 10 Public Speaking coaches globally by Yahoo!.

I am based and was born in Singapore, studied in Switzerland, raised in Australia and worked in the United Arab Emirates. This journey working for some of the world’s biggest broadcasting brands pushed me to develop deep intercultural understandings which have allowed me to communicate and connect with hugely diverse audiences. As a result of my positioning between East and West, I am often asked to deliver sessions for APAC teams on cross-cultural communication and connection.

In 2020, I created my first B2C offering, the CourageousSpeaking.com Community, an online membership centred on presentation skills, which aims to empower people all around Asia to connect with their authentic voice.

I have a Communications and Cultural Studies degree from Curtin University of Technology where I graduated with distinction. I have studied speechwriting in London under Tony Blair’s former speechwriter, Phillip Collins. As a coach I have a Certificate of Higher Education Teaching from Harvard University where I completed the course with a grade of 98.8%.
