It was once Jade started putting more emphasis on the speaking parts of her piano concerts that she would challenge stereotypes and explore new possibilities, all while inspiring her audiences. Jade’s stories were what really touched the hearts of the audiences she was serving and started to open new doors to different stages and platforms.
Around this same time, Jade and her husband had started a family, so she wanted to be focused on profitability, security, and sustainability, as well as career-building. It was her desire to personally provide more for her family AND to make a bigger impact on the world around her (outside of music). It all started when she gave a speech of a lifetime in a very small room with very few people, which gave way to an opportunity for her first speaking engagement.
It was then that Jade transitioned from freelance artist to entrepreneur and built out a professional speaking sector of her business, Jade Media.
In a very short time, she was able to translate her musical background, training, and her experiences on differentiating in the world of Classical music to what companies wanted to learn about innovation, creativity, productivity, impact, and purpose. Combining inspiration, entertainment, and powerful content, Jade has created one-of-a-kind main stage keynote experiences that have impacted people all over the world.
She is a sought-after speaker, coach, and author, who is brought in by the world’s most superlative and recognized brands to spark transformation in their people. She was named one of the “Best Keynote Speakers” of both 2019 and 2020 and is in high demand within the meetings and events industry. Jade Media eventually transitioned to Jade Media Global, LLC, a certified woman-owned business, with a diverse team of other inspiring women. Jade now travels all over the globe speaking and sharing her trademark message of transformation and purpose.
From kids to corporate, with leadership, college audiences, women’s groups, arts, and faith-based programs in between, the result is always the same.
She gets people to bring more of themselves to every single table, every single time.
Her administration would empower and incentivize sustainable people-first initiatives, borderless collaboration between states during times of crisis, and national leadership that inspires us to do hard things in hard times that help us win. She brings a powerful connection with business leaders who know her as a servant-leader who has already powerfully served their people.
Make no mistake, communication will be key. Communication with all types of people, of varying viewpoints, with varying agendas, will be crucial.
Jade Simmons is the new communicator we need for the new era ahead.
