Get ready to find out what we do, why we exist, how you can get involved and much more!

Why we exist

Professional Weirdos is the brainchild of Lord Simon Jacobs.

Long story relatively short, Simon loves using his creativity, in all aspects of his life.

Simon started his first business at the ripe age of 16 and his second whilst at university, but the inspiration for Professional Weirdos only came once he'd had an ‘important’ and high paying corporate job in London.

His corporate job was the envy of his colleagues and it impressed his parents and relatives but it just wasn't for him. It stunted his creativity, stressed him out and he just didn't enjoy it.

Simon left his corporate job and decided to look for something else, something more meaningful, fulfilling and fun for him.

He was struggling a bit to find his next move, but this changed after a catch up with a friend.

During this catch up his friend said to him; “Simon, you’re a ‘bit weird’, but I think it’s a massive factor in your success to date. Understand it, formulate it and bottle it. There’s a lot of value in it!”


This was the lightbulb moment.


Simon left this chat with jubilation and excitement.

He had found some new direction.

The plan was to set up a community with aims of helping other people recognise their inner weirdness, embrace it and work it.

It blossomed and showed Simon that there was an appetite for his vision.

Simon came up with the name Professional Weirdos when he was trying to describe himself and the type of people he wanted to work with.

These are the people who go to work 9-5 and feel the constant pressure to suppress their ‘true selves’ in order to fit in, when in actuality the more they share their quirks and personality, the more success and happiness they’re bound to have.

Oh… and he wanted a fun title for himself for this line of work and Professional Weirdo described that perfectly!

However, now that this is his full time focus he is technically a Professional Weirdo².

There’s a wide expanse that Simon wants the business to touch and work with.

From schools and entrepreneurship to large multinational companies that need help cultivating their innovative minds.

So, if you like the sound of that and want to get a piece of the action, read on!

What We Do

At its core, Professional Weirdos is a training & education company.

So in the simplest of terms, we run talks and workshops, produce content, courses and books and go into companies & organisations to help boost people's confidence, reintroduce them to their own creative abilities and empower them to use it in their everyday lives effectively.

This all relates back to helping people achieve more success and ultimately happiness in life.

It can be a real challenge, but one we utterly cherish. 

We've given talks and run workshops for some incredible people and organisations, many of which have gone on to change their ways of working, find new possibilities and achieve increased levels of success. 

The principles and key learning outcomes are based on our own Professional Weirdos' theory and methodology.

How To Get Involved & Unleash Your Own Inner Weirdo

Professional Weirdos was originally conceived with the individual at its heart, the corporate training has only been a recently edition to our services. 

With that in mind and because individuals are our first priority we have a whole host of ways (and are constantly developing and thinking of more) for people to get involved in Professional Weirdos.

The first port of call is the Professional Weirdos Facebook Group & Community.

Then there is the business itself.

There are also two books currently in the pipeline.


And finally we have the courses we are developing and our challenges and real world events

We're always looking for more ways to get people involved in Professional Weirdos so if you have any suggestions we are all ears!

Facebook Group & Community

The Facebook group started back in 2017 and was originally named 'Is The World Strange, Or Am I?'.

The aim of the group is to be the online hub for the community.

We want the Professional Weirdos community to be filled with people who want to better themselves, like to challenge the status quo, take chances, are super creative and ultimately want to enjoy life and smile more than they don't.

The group and community were set up to bring a bunch of people together who all think differently and to create a melting pot of ideas, inspiration and support.

Professional Weirdos members are people who see challenges and setbacks as opportunities, they see brick walls as windows and enemies as future friends.

In the group there is a mixture of individual and business based discussion as well as regular interviews with people who have achieved success (by their own definition) simply by being themselves.

Members of the group get exclusive, first hand access to these interviews and content and are the first to know about any Professional Weirdos products, courses or events.

So, if you'd like to be part of a the weird, fast growing, fun and positive Facebook Group just click the picture of Simon below.
