Complete Communication

Simon Hall

Welcome to the official website of Simon Hall

If you're struggling for a compelling message that combines the creative and the commercial, I can help.

I'm a lecturer and coach at the world leading Judge Business School, part of the University of Cambridge, and a former BBC News Correspondent with 20 years' experience.

I've worked in government departments, the finance industry, universities, with small and large businesses, and across the public sector in all areas of communications, including:

  • Public speaking
  • Media training
  • Creating a compelling image
  • Pitching for investment
  • Social media strategy
  • Speech writing
  • Crisis communications
  • Branding
  • Websites
  • Videography and photography
  • Blog, articles and report writing

I teach all areas of communications for the Civil Service College, working with governments both in the United Kingdom and overseas.

I'm also a communications consultant for the University of Cambridge, a tutor in public relations, presentation, and media skills for the Cambridge Network, and a writer with eight novels published.

For all your communications' needs, with smart, sharp and striking messaging, I'm here to help.
