simon major

It is with great sadness that we have to report that Simon W Major, the designer and the lead trainer for our Training the Trainers workshops from 2002 to 2015, passed away.

Simon trained over 100 TV professionals during this time, helping establish TV trainers in numerous countries and regions across Europe. He will be remembered for his sympathetic approach and insightful knowledge, reflected in the fact that the tributes have come from almost every corner of Europe.

His contribution to CIRCOM training will always be appreciated.
Our thoughts and sincere condolences are with his family at this sad time.


"He trained and inspired many of our members and will always be remembered."

"I was a participant of his last Training the Trainers workshop... Great guy!"

"He did a great job in helping leaders and trainers from all corners of Europe reach their peaks and develop their skills."

"I'm very sad to hear this - we'll all remember him as a wonderfully wise, inspiring and gentle guide."

"Simon was a lovely nan and I learnt so much from him."

"It was a great experience to participate in his train the trainers - and I use his skills until now. He was a great person and his spirit took over to his trainees."

"Never got to meet Simon but have heard so much good about him and his trainings. His trainings have played a significant role for many of my colleagues and for SVT as a company."

"There are many lessons from Simon’s train the trainer programme that I still use."
