Welcome to Simpateco
Simpateco was founded by Linda and Dan O'Grady who share years of collective experience in dealing with that most mysterious of creatures - the human being.
Linda's background in acting, corporate training, sales and marketing and Dan's experiences in hospitality, retail, entertainment and account management and has given them a passion to help others overcome communication barriers.
What's been said about us:
"Speaking in public is pretty much an everyday occurrence for me. And for so long I genuinely believed I knew what I was doing. After all - I kept getting bookings. It wasn't until I started working with Linda that I realized how much I had to learn.
And how much more powerful my presentations could be. Linda's gentle attention to detail and careful guidance has made such a difference to my performances and given my work the public profile it needed and deserved. I cannot thank her enough."
Deb Verhoeven, Associate Dean of Engagement and Innovation, University of Technology Sydney.
"Linda came to help a small group of designers and producers at Portable tackle our public presentations. We had a day workshop with her, and to plan the day, Linda gave us a few options about what we could so we could tailor the experience to the group's level of experience and comfort.
The results were evident when it came to us giving our presentations, with the warm up exercises she helped us craft and her specific guidance on individual presentation styles being referenced by us weeks after she delivered the training.
Linda was fantastic, warm and really gave us practical tips and a boost of confidence. Thanks Linda!"
Sarah Kaur, Partner & Chief Operating Officer, Portable.
