Shed Simove is an entrepreneur, author and corporate speaker. His areas of expertise are CREATIVITY, INNOVATION and IDEAS GENERATION. Following a degree in Experimental Psychology at Balliol College, Oxford, and two years working in Disney World, Florida (as a Sixteenth Century Gentleman), Shed worked in TV Production, heading up programs including ‘The Big Breakfast’, ‘Space Cadets’, and ‘Big Brother’. Shed soon became known industry-wide for making innovative, ground-breaking television shows. In 2003, Shed was appointed Commissioning Editor of Channel 4’s ‘Big Brother’ and throughout his TV career was also involved in discovering and launching many stars including Kelly Brook, Tess Daly and Russell Brand. Shed has forged a highly innovative merchandising empire – creating conceptual gifts, executive toys, best-selling adult sweets, books, greetings cards, and even his own currency. To date, Shed 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 About Apart From Sex’ became an international bestseller despite consisting of two hundred completely blank pages. It reached number 44 on the Amazon chart and has been translated in numerous languages, including Spanish and Mongolian. Shed is an expert in IDEAS and can help make anyone’s ideas happen. Shed believes that "when an idea pops into your head, it can send you on amazing adventures - if you follow the idea through ". He fervently believes in ‘failing upwards’ by trying to launch numerous ideas and learning from the amazing experiences they bring. Shed performs memorable and entertaining talks that showcase his conceptual products and the amazing adventures surrounding them. He uses his own entrepreneurial journeys to give a powerful insight into how the audience can be more innovative, delivering concrete techniques for creativity and new ideas for any business that will directly increase profitability. Plus, he shares his secrets for success and outlines the steps towards achieving whatever you desire – both personally and in the corporate world. Shed excels at giving business teams the tools to create new ideas that directly affect the company’s bottom line. As well as his keynote speech, Shed’s innovation techniques can also be used in the same session to tackle specific needs that the company has, generating ideas for new products, services and solutions that will directly increase profitability. As his talk is both entertaining and informative, it is also suitable for lighter occasions. Shed’s ability to create new ideas, coupled with his skill to make them happen, mean that his range and rate of success is vast - and thus his performances are wonderfully motivational as well as entertaining. He has the ability to both inspire significant, ‘bottom-line’ changes and then equip the audience with the tools to make those changes happen. Shed’s inspirational and hugely informative performances showcase his amazing career path, using props and visuals that add to the engaging and exciting stories he tells. Shed has performed his visual and inspirational corporate speech successfully to both entrepreneurs and non business people alike.

Collapse summary

Unilever UK & Ireland

Paul Matthews, Press Officer

"I invited Shed to come and visit the Unilever UK & Ireland communications team to share with us some of the thought processes and "tricks of the trade" he uses to come up with great ideas. The session he delivered was dazzlingly good - full of energy, insights, inspiration and positivity. If you want to take an alternative, off-the-wall look at how you can inject some creativity into your team or business, then Shed's your man."


Group Innovation Director, B&Q

Andy Wiggins

“Our commercial team spent a highly amusing and thought provoking evening listening to some of Shed’s real life journeys from mad idea to commercial product. This has caused a real buzz in the team and got our buyers thinking: ‘there’s another way of doing this’…”


MD, Elmwood

Elliot Wilson

“Shed - I’ve never met a character like him. His can-do attitude and tenacity is an example to us all…He’s incredibly enthusiastic, getting involved with every stage of the event from planning it to judging the competition. We were thoroughly entertained and, like Shed’s products, the evening has certainly proved to be a talking point.”


eBay UK

Desigan Chinniah

“‘Less talk and more action’ is the name of Shed’s game as he goes through countless number of practical tips on idea generation, and how to execute them as well. There are thousands of ideas practically staring you in the face, all you need is a bit of ‘Shed inspiration’ to be the catalyst and kick it all off!”


CEO, Beyond Analysis

Paul Alexander

“Over and above my own expectations and desires from Shed’s presentation, the feedback from the business has been a huge amount of respect for Shed having the passion and tenacity to see an idea through to its natural completion rather than most who would have dropped it by the wayside. If you want to reinvent yourself or change the way you and your people think, he is an absolute must.”


Truth Consulting on behalf of SONY UK

Paul Scrase

“Genius! Shed has captured his creative steps and delivers them with passionate, understandable and hilarious stories of his successes (and failures). Shed and his products are brilliant at challenging people to think differently and are great at kick starting any creative innovation session...”
