Simon Middleton

Author, speaker, brand advisor, mentor, entrepreneur.

Hello and thanks for your interest in my work

I am the founder and managing director of The Great British Banjo Company, creator of The Shackleton Banjo brand and author of three books, the most recent of which is Brand New You.

As an entrepreneur, self-development writer, and brand adviser I speak at events around the world. I advise entrepreneurs, small businesses and organisations on developing stand-out brands and offer one-to-one mentoring to help ambitious individuals develop personally and professionally.

Using my unusual story, I give inspiring, motivational keynotes on topics from personal branding to entrepreneurship, and from career change to self-development. See some client feedback.
