Thank you, incredibly insightful


What a brilliant - but unnerving session. Thank you Simon


Extremely enjoyable and informative thank you


Fantastic & thought-provoking training session from
@simfin this morning about cyberstalking & domestic abuse. Loads of useful info to help us better support service users experiencing abuse.

Thanks Durham Council for putting this on.

Thank you, that was excellent

Wow, this has been absolutely amazing, thank you so much.


Absolutely brilliant training, best I've attended in a very long time, thanks so much Simon

This is really insightful training and it has really made me think and be aware of things that I had not really thought about. Really powerful training thank you.

That was amazing thank you.



I found the session really informative and so important. I am so grateful this is available and will be passing the knowledge to everyone I know.

Very informative, thank you Simon

Great session and very impactful! thankyou

Thank you very much for a very interesting presentation and links for support.


If you’re looking for online safety training @simfin is the one to contact! Amazing, eye opening training which makes you reflect and take action!

Fascinating, could listen all day.

As ever an amazing presentation and also so thought provoking and such up to date examples to put his point across. Such a great speaker.

Rarely have I taken part in truly mind changing training, but today (we) were well and truly schooled by Simon Finch.. funny man with an important and sobering message about how to be safer online. He has left us with so many ideas and real motivation to get some resources designed for the very vulnerable young people and families we work with.

Another fabulous session on digital safety with
@simfin and @digitalunite. “You don’t have to be an ICT specialist to support people with digital safety, we need to be able to recognise the social behaviours of those around us”

Thankyou so much. The most informative and thought provoking training I have taken part in for a very long time.

I would like to thank Simon for his interesting and thought provoking session. Very helpful for work and everyday life.

Great, informative session that has prepared me better for my role as a specialist teacher.

Thanks @simfin for an excellent and incredibly eye opening 'Safeguarding in the Digital Age' training session.

Thank you Simon!! So enlightening

Fantastic presentation...thought provoking and definitely the direction we need to be going in!

Brilliant presentation thank you

A really interesting topic, and very thought provoking - thank you Simon.

Really interesting presentation, definitely some interesting advice which I will build into day to day practice, thankyou.


A huge thank you to @simfin for delivering some really informative internet safety sessions to our Y5 children, parents/carers, governors and staff.

Good materials, great delivery, fun, engaging, but important and relevant.

Brilliant. Very informative. Thought provoking. Thorough. Engaging. Valuable.

Brilliant input from @simfin.
Will definitely be sharing this back at school - we must help our children stay safe online and 'like' themselves!

@simfin - absolutely bloomin' amazing!!! He should be heading up @educationgovuk #esafety policy/training!

It was good to learn more about the laws surrounding sexting and also some ideas for how to respond if someone is trying to pressure you to send them a nude picture (such as using funny pictures from childline zipit or sending them a photo of a naked molerat)

Made the talk really interesting and comfortable despite the topic he was talking about.

Such a fun conference had humour aimed at us and he was a relatable character. His energetic character was a great pick me up after the long morning but still had great information.

Have had the pleasure of watching a couple of your live presentations. Amazing! Following your (facebook) page for great up to date advice. Thank you. 

Feedback from (Year 10) students and staff on your session has been superb. Thank you!

A very informative session which has made me consider how we teach eSafety to our students and how we discuss their online presence with them. Thanks @simfin

Thoroughly, THOROUGHLY enjoyed your stalking session today. Invaluable and enjoyable, thank you..

Absolutely fantastic session which we know was a hit as the kids all came upstairs and changed their passwords!

Huge thank you to the always-entertaining @simfin for delivering our staff Online Safety training tonight!

Many thanks @simfin for outstanding, informative digital citizenship sessions today with our Y6 classes, who were highly engaged and enthusiastic throughout.

Thank you once again for your thorough and thought-provoking talk. It’s not often that seminars make me see things from a totally different perspective and want to do something about it straight away.

Very honest and thought provoking presentation about internet safety and safeguarding our children. Would highly recommend!

Brilliant feedback from our Year 5 Parents and Carers who joined us today with our online safety expert @simfin
100% would recommend this session.
100% found the session extremely useful.

Thought provoking, informative and you make me double check my thought process.

Enthusiastic facilitator with excellent knowledge on the subject.

Brilliant facilitator, very interesting.

Brilliant, entertaining and lots to take on board.
Teaching us to keep our young people safe in this digital age.

Thanks for another fab CPD session on the importance of digital citizenship @simfin - I learn something new every time and thoroughly enjoy your delivery style (the time flew).

what a thought provoking talk by Simon Finch on working with children/ young people and the use of technology

'Really engaging and thought-provoking - inspired really good discussion sessions'

This was the most thorough inspiring course that I have been on and the content of information was excellent.

Bringing #TechThat Education Technology Conference to an amazing end in a way that only he can . . . the ‘king of uncomfortable truths’

The Digital Citizenship session has given me the information needed to develop my skills more with regard to social media and how young people can be affected by it. I feel more confident in being able to discuss issues surrounding this subject now.
