I’ve worked with Simon over a number of years in the various roles he has held at Pearson. I’ve always found him to be an open and engaging colleague, with a positive outlook. He has excellent industry knowledge, particularly in the academic and schools publishing sphere (covering print and digital formats, for everything from traditional textbooks, to courseware, assessment platforms etc). Given that extensive knowledge base its not a surprise to me that Simon is now looking to utilise those skills in a consultancy role for his next challenge. I can see how his knowledge and experience would add value to authors, publishing houses and aggregators (retailers, libraries and wholesale) in rights management, strategic sales management and planning and content marketing’.

Lawrence is one of the best if not the best person I have known in the rights business. I have known Lawrence for almost twenty years now since I was with Pearson Asia, buying rights from him and his team. There were times when the deals were so complicated as they involved so many parties, Lawrence was able to sort out those issues on a win-win basis. His calm and friendly manner in dealing with people and issues makes him such a wonderful person to deal with. Even after leaving Pearson and joining World Scientific Publishing, meeting Lawrence at Frankfurt Book Fair every October is always one of the highlights of my trip there.
