Photographer, author, writer, and speaker Simon Salt has been working from locations that are definitely Out of Office for more than six years. He has been quoted by the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and various other print and online publications and has spoken to audiences across the globe. He presents topics as diverse as mobile, digital, and social marketing and creativity. He also has a comedic session on how to speak English the English way.

Educated in Britain, Simon has degrees in Information Technology, Business and Finance, and Behavioral Science. He also has a master’s degree in Logic, Text, and Information Technology—but he still has yet to pass high school math! He is a lifelong learner and is currently attempting to learn Spanish.

This is Simon’s third book, and is already planning his next one—he is also considering therapy to help his addiction to writing. When not sitting at a keyboard, Simon is behind a camera, helping tell other people’s stories—something he loves to do.
