His work revolves around creative entrepreneurship, digital media, fashion and tech consulting.

Born in Uganda, he grew up as a teenager in Birmingham, UK, graduating with an undergraduate degree in Law from The University of Manchester and a Masters in Management from Aston University.

It was in London, after some tough times in his personal and professional life, that he launched the ‘Simon Says’ series of video messages on Instagram and LinkedIn. The aim was to share some of the lessons and pointers that helped Simon
navigate the trials and tribulations he faced at that time. This book has the same purpose.

Outside work, Simon hosts a podcast show called ‘The Simon Tefula Show’ – Real Stories from Real Entrepreneurs.
