Constantly¬† searching for the hottest new mobile social media apps, platforms, talent and global innovation, he knows just how to reach the world’s “Screenagers.” Simon is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in the U.K., and a member of the National Academy of Recorded Arts & Sciences in the USA.
