Crocker Publishing (Pty) Ltd

Crocker Publishing are the publishers of life coach, author, professional speaker and teacher of courage Simon Ekin's first book - The Art of Courage. 

In 1999 Simon got on a bus in London. By the time he got off that bus 10 minutes later, his life had changed forever. What happened lead him to being called a ‘teacher of courage.’

His mission is to inspire, teach and train entrepreneurs in the art of living courageous and extraordinary lives.

He was trained at The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst as a British Army Officer. Since then he has been championing the cause of courage – what he believes to be the most important of all virtues. Whether it be cycling the length of Africa or relentlessly and consistently confronting his own fears of judgment and ridicule by speaking - uninvited - to groups of strangers.

What he has learnt has been extraordinary. He share those lessons in his book.

All that he does hinges on story-telling, yours and his. His own story of how he broke through fear and discovered how to use fear as an extraordinary opportunity for courageous and decisive action should inspire you to live your life – powerfully and courageously.
