Simon is the founder of Fire Up Ministries, an organisation that delivers courses on similar topics to young adults. He discussed topics like authentic masculinity, relationships and strategies to combat addiction. He spoke affectionately of his time at Redfield and was very open about his own struggles with confidence, mental health, addictions and a stuttering condition.⁠ 

It was a confronting topic, but Simon delivered a sincere presentation that was very practical, engaging and entertaining. Thank you for visiting Simon! We know the boys learned a lot and we hope you can visit again soon!
