Simon Poole Splash Projects team

Simon is the Managing Director of Splash Projects and has run community projects all over the world. He previously spent 23 years in the British Forces as a Parachute Engineer and a senior instructor at the Royal School of Military Engineering and Joint Services Diving School, where he was responsible for the design and implementation of specialist training programmes for a wide range of people including Special Forces. He also managed construction projects involving more than £2m worth of engineering equipment. His experience has taught him that the most effective training involves live tasks requiring leadership, planning, delegation, deadlines – and people relying on the individuals and teams to complete the task successfully. During his time in the forces and since 2004, he has worked on projects around the world involving hospices, respite homes, schools for children with special needs, homeless charities and remote communities in need.  A member of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), he is also an Emergency Medical Technician in Remote Care, an HSE qualified Commercial Diving Instructor in Underwater Demolition and Construction, a Yacht master Sail (RYA cruising instructor) and a Mountain Leader.
