Simon is a Family Office Consultant, Educator, Psychotherapist and Organisational Psychologist.

'Passing The Buck - How To Avoid the Three Generation Wealth Trap', is Simon's first book. The inspiration for writing this book is that Simon knows that the wealth trap is avoidable, but not unless the problem is fully understood and the issues are tackled effectively. Using neurological research, the book avoids stereotypes and instead explains why each generation of the family needs to be considered separately due to the very different experiences, motivations and goals that they will have and the totally different challenges (both personal and organisational) that they will experience.
