Our founders' story is a truly remarkeable roller coaster ride of keeping the business plates spinning... hoping one doesn't come crashing down. A family business background, Government experience ending in a nervous breakdown, a successful consultancy then into business to build from scratch a Leisure & Hospitality Group, eventually operating in 36 countries, serving over 286,000 clients annually. One failed business later (not that one) Simon gained the ILM Level 7 in Mentoring & Coaching in 2013, awarded an MBA in 2014, became a Director of the Association of Business Mentors in 2014, its first Chair in 2017 and its CEO in 2019. He was admitted as a Freeman of the Guild of Entrepreneurs in the City of London in 2017 and now sits as a Court Assistant on the Membership Committee. In 2020 he has assisted The Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy with their COVID-19 business response. In 2012 he set up Fordham Henderson to help others in business to overcome the challenges all business owners and C-Level Directors face, to keep their personal and business plates spinning, while keeping their sanity and having fun... Yes you can have fun in business!
