    Topics & Types

    Shed Simove is an entrepreneur, author and corporate speaker. His areas of expertise are creativity, innovation and idea generation. Harnessing a constant stream of ideas from his astonishingly active mind, Simove has learned to transform his unconventional concepts into lucrative and original business ventures, which form the basis of his completely unique books, products, performances and corporate speeches.

    Following a degree in Experimental Psychology at Balliol College, Oxford, and two years working in Disney World, Florida (as a Sixteenth Century Gentleman), Simove worked in TV Production, heading up programmes including The Big Breakfast, Space Cadets, and Big Brother. Simove soon became known industry-wide for making innovative, ground-breaking television shows.

To date, Simove has sold over one million novelty gifts worldwide and has won ‘Gift Of The Year’ twice, once for a range of birthday candles that spell “You’re Old”, and more recently for the “Sound Machine” – a neat contraption that provides sixteen sounds for any occasion. His world-famous book, What Every Man Thinks
