Motivational Speaking

I have been speaking at corporate events and private functions for around 10 years now for a varied group of clients in both the UK and abroad.

My experiences working in the UK Military, various agencies and private security all over the world have given me some unusual experiences to say the least, and a unique perspective and understanding of people and life. Also as a working Hypnotist & Mentalist I have the added advantage of being able to manipulate peoples reality, giving them the opportunity to change beliefs and gain a new perspective.

All these experiences have given me a vast array of material and lessons to use and impart in the talks I deliver, giving an alternate perspective on common situations and problems. I ensure that my talks are filled with plenty of humour and often “take you on an emotional rollercoaster”, as described by one client.

Below are a few testimonials from some of my corporate clients and the video trailers I currently have.

I join a grateful group of Seton Hall Law students in thanking you for investing time with our Crisis Negotiation Seminar.  As we approach the midpoint of our third and final day, yours remains the most powerful, poignant perspective.

I am awed by your ability to candidly share unimaginably personal life events. We are all the richer for your candor.

We would greatly value the opportunity to view the Dropbox video.  Please let me know if your offer stands.

Thanks, Simon.

We wish you every continuing success.

Best regards,

Simon was our guest speaker at our inaugural event in Aberdeen and talked about team building and development, managing emotions – your own and other peoples – and all under pressure in a crisis. It was highly engaging and took us all to a different perspective and brought insight into how we can apply this in our own way.

E.on contracted Simon Maryan to speak to our teams prior to starting 2 separate drilling projects in the UK  and to provide workshops and training as required. Simon communnicated effectively to all levels from OIM downwards and built a good  relationship with the E.on team and the drilling contractors crew and this enabled Simon to deliver our intended message very clearly.

I can highly recommend Simon for his ability to deliver your message in a unique and highly engaging way that will take you on a roller coaster of emotions.

‘Our Team contacted Simon to provide a motivational talk at a company team building event. Simon built a bespoke presentation around our needs, which gave an insight into Safety, team building, performance under pressure and psychology. Simon’s innovative method of delivery was very engaging and ensured that he had the full attention of all delegates for the duration of the session. Simon also kindly agreed to showcase some of his Hypnotism skills, which were impressive and helped to finish off our day on a light-hearted note. I would wholeheartedly recommend Simon to anyone. Simon is a very effective and engaging speaker and I hope to work with him again in the future.’

Simon delivered some excellent talks and presentations to my team whilst I was working as an Overseas Security Manager for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in Pakistan. Simon’s knowledge is varied and well founded and he easily grasps the vagaries and contradictions of public and private sector working, so that he can use his highly creative mind in an effort to deliver alternative and interesting solutions to team work. Highly recommended.

Ian Daniel MSc, Security Manager


Simon presented and delivered a talk in a very challenging environment and on top of his talk, Simon was a very reassuring and effective sounding board in discussing a multitude of coaching related challenges with the most difficult of clientèle. His talk was very well received and certainly got the message across in a way that the personnel were not expecting or used to. Excellent job and highly recommend him.
