Simon is the founder of Forum, a global network of principals and experts, all personally invited to join by members of its Advisory Board. There are membership chapters in London, New York, West Coast, Singapore, Zurich, Vienna and Tel Aviv, with additional members residing in 20 further cities worldwide.

the number.
