Simon is presently one of the most sought after corporate speakers and trainers in Australia, he uses his experiences and expertise to motivate, challenge and build organisational culture.
 
Leonie Wallace
Leonie Wallace is a former newspaper and television journalist who teaches English to secondary school teenagers. In 1991, while a cadet reporter in Geelong, she heard about the baffling murder of two women in Portland. When it remained unsolved, the mystery inspired her decision to one day research the case for the purposes of writing a book. That time came in late 2008 while juggling the demands of parenting her two pre-school children. Little did she know then the dramatic effect it would have on her life, those around her, the Portland community at large, and the actual police investigation. ‘Horrible Man’ is Leonie’s first book.

Mother of four sons, a grandmother and teacher, she decided to write this story as a testament to her eldest son’s courage in giving evidence against a paedophile priest. Raised in a traditional Catholic family, she was totally unprepared for the shock of denial and ostracism by the church community. An advocate for victims of clergy sexual abuse, she is committed to making sure that her family’s lonely experience will never be repeated.
