Welcome to my site

I have over 13 years experience in government, politics and media with an advanced understanding of the interplay between, and influence on, the various 'estates'. In addition to providing strategic and tactical communications advice to Coalition Senators, Members and staff, I have directed and/or developed print and digital communications in the 2001, 2004, 2007 and 2010 Australian federal elections.

I have exceptionally strong communication and relationship skills across all levels of society. I am a news and data 'junkie' who utilises data analytics in political and business communications to improve effectiveness and return-on-investment.

By far my greatest achievements are marrying my wife and our three beautiful children.

Recent Experience

  • I worked with Simeon whilst I was Chief Operating Officer at Immigration Services. I found he was able to quickly grasp the issues facing the contract, articulate strategic messages and demonstrated a very broad understanding of the political landscape. He was also fun to work with. I hope we are able to work together in the future.

  • Before the most recent election I often exchanged ideas and experiences with Simeon. He's quick to learn new things and has proven he can work in a fast-moving and challenging role.

  • I worked with Simeon on the election campaign for Tony Abbott. Simeon is a great blend of strategic and execution, and lives and breathes digital (whether he realises it or not). Simeon is a transparent operator, giving clear direction and feedback quickly and efficiently. The campaign was a very intense project with lots of moving parts and changing priorities and Simeon made the experience very enjoyable and challenging, without him the whole project would've been very difficult.

  • Simeon Duncan is a consummate professional. His understanding of the political and digital landscape and the way in which if impacts on governance and electioneering is second to none. Simeon has the ability to work diligently within a high pressure team environment, delivery the necessary outcomes in a timely and exceptional fashion.

    Thomas Tudehope Social Media Consultant

  • Simeon's communication skills, effective method of preparation and easy going nature are only few of the components behind his successful professional career to date. Simeon shows initiative and drive, and works well in a team environment. He is also capable of achieving his set tasks with minimal supervision, and fuss. His sense of humour is appreciated and I recommend Simeon without hesitation.
