Subject: Letter of Reference for Simon D. Scott
Respond Solutions Inc. is an emergency preparedness organization that provides “E‐Learning”
programs for law enforcement through our partner, the Canadian Police Knowledge Network.
In 2009, with the emergence of the H1N1 pandemic, Respond Solutions Inc. turned to Simon
D. Scott to provide essential French language translation and professional
voice over work for our Infectious Disease and Pandemic Preparedness Program.
While I have known Simon for several years, this was one of many opportunities to partner with
Mr. Scott. In our efforts to design, develop, and deliver a national training resource, Simon
was extremely committed and diligent in providing professional voice over talent and language
translation services. Working under tight timelines, Simon produced expert content and voice
over work that enabled our Development Team to build courseware effectively and efficiently.
To date, more than 9,000 learners from client groups across the country have registered to the
Infectious Disease and Pandemic Preparedness Program. Among these, Toronto Police Service,
Canada’s largest municipal police service, has made this course mandatory training for all its
members and civilian staff. The RCMP has also licensed this course to make it available to
more than 26,000 cadets, sworn officers, and civilian personnel.
In addition to uptake, the feedback we’ve received from learners is a testament to the quality
of Simon’s professional voice talent and French language content. Often described as an
“absolutely useful” and “extremely beneficial” course, learners have found this training to be
“time well spent.” Likewise, I have found our partnership with Simon as time well spent. I
would recommend Simon Scott's services without hesitation. If you have any questions,
please feel free to contact me anytime.
