Simon teaches designers about business and business leaders about design in environments such as prisons, project buildings, and venture capital boardrooms. He draws on a background in sociology from Columbia University, early-stage investing in New York's startup scene, and years of interaction and service design in Copenhagen. There he started and led an impact incubator and a global design training unit at CIID, the world-renowned design institute, for 6 years.
Simon founded Anglemap as a global insights and design training agency focused on supporting organizations through challenging times by gaining insights across cultural barriers and building capabilities through bespoke workshops and sprints. Since 2017, Simon and the Anglemap team have worked with clients such as the Red Cross, Philip Morris International, Dentsu, LEGO Education, BCG, and many others. Simon is happiest showing people new perspectives, carving spoons out of found wood, and reading about medieval travelers.
The number of additional facilitators depends on the final group size and will be announced closer to the workshop date. A technical specialist will be on hand to support you with any tech issues when connecting digitally.
