Simon Berwick - Mentor
I joined Citrus as a mentor in August 2011 with a wealth of experience in teaching, assessing, retail, business and sales gained over many years in dealing with people, products and personalities! After I completed my training as a photographer at Blackpool College I moved overseas to the UAE to work in commercial, industrial & advertising photography in Dubai. Three years later having photographed many kings, sheiks, Prime Ministers, pop stars and oilrigs I returned to the UK and began a career in photographic sales, marketing and training. Following the changes in the industry over to digital products - and having had a short spell when I ran my own art gallery and printing business - I moved over to the world of teaching and assessing. I have worked with both young people and adults during the last few years and found it to be a rewarding time. The experiences I have gained provide me with a great mix of relevant skills in order to deal with the daily challenges that arise here.
