Who Is Scott Simmerman?
Dr. Scott J. Simmerman is the creator of Square Wheels®, a series of clever illustrations

Scott is Managing Partner of Performance Management Company, a consulting company he founded
in 1984 focused on customer service and organizational improvement. Over the past 14 years,
the focus has shifted to creating, manufacturing and distributing his teambuilding and OD
products worldwide and training others to use them effectively.
He is a Certified Professional Facilitator by the International Association of
Facilitators and has delivered keynotes and presentations to audiences in over 30 countries.
One of Scott's premises is that if people enjoy a learning experience, they will
more readily retain key learning points and he designs his products and presentations
to fit this principle.
When he's not presenting, marketing and developing, he is also a frequent writer and
contributor to numerous learning groups as well as adjunct professor at Furman
University's Center for Corporate and Professional Development. He is a former board
member of North American Simulation and Gaming Association (NASAGA).
Consulting and presentation opportunities in dozens of countries have given Scott a
base of experience and humor that is both polished and practical. He is always among
the top-rated presenters at international conferences based on participant feedback.
His presentation skills are exceptional, his approach low-key, and his style is engaging
and involving as opposed to lecturing.
