Simon spent 25 years in the corporate world working for some of the biggest names in industry. On the face of it I was very successful and had the kind of life most would dream of - earning huge amounts of money, big houses, cars, holidays, a beautiful wife and all the trappings of a life revolving around materialism and corporate reward.

But the truth is that while everything looked great on the face of it, Simon was suffering in silence underneath it - addicted to prescription painkillers, drinking heavily, behaving callously and selfishly towards family, friends and colleagues, hurting people who didn't deserve it and on a path of self destruction that led to forcing open a hotel window in London and attempting to take his own life.

That moment changed his life and whilst shame played its part in giving him the willpower to take responsibility for previous wrongs, he realised that the sincerest apology he could give was to exhibit a consistent change of behaviour and make kindness his default.
