About Simone

Simone Heng is a human connection specialist inspiring people to connect in a world thirsty for connection.

As a former international broadcaster for one and a half decades, for the likes of CNBC, CNN, HBO Asia, and Virgin Radio Dubai, Simone’s job was to connect on-air, on-stage, online and one-to-one with people. Simone now speaks to organisations around the world on the connection techniques that authentically bring us together.

Her incredibly moving and inspiring keynotes have been described as “oratory movies,” weaving together story and her diverse cultural learnings. Her clients have included: Salesforce, UBS, DBS, Google, Ted X, Great Eastern, AIA, Eurochem, Manulife, The United Nations, Braze and many more.

Simone is based and was born in Singapore, studied in Switzerland, raised in Australia and worked in the United Arab Emirates. This journey required her to develop deep intercultural understandings which have allowed her to communicate and connect with hugely diverse audiences.

In 2020, Simone created 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.

Simone has a Communications and Cultural Studies degree from Curtin University of Technology and has studied speechwriting in London under Tony Blair’s former speechwriter, Phillip Collins. She is currently pursuing a certificate in Higher Education Teaching at Harvard University.

She uses her 100, 000 strong social media community to spread the message of connection and communication.
