Jade is the first answer to “we are looking for something different, someone new, yet proven, unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.”

“We are always looking for people who are unique, new — fresh. Jade Simmons is that. She’s very dynamic. She draws you in, you just want to listen to her, and the way she tells her stories and interjects her music — there’s no one like her.”

“A clear, powerful pianist with a magnetic personality…worth seeing any time.”

Washington Post


DUH! There’s Music!

Nothing’s more powerful than the motivating force of music. And in Jade, you get “Classical Music’s #1 Maverick,” who goes from Rachmaninoff all the way to Rap, an artist who’s killed it at both SXSW and The White House.


Forget “Customization.” Meet Assimilation!

Expect her to dig deep into your organization’s culture, your people’s personal goals, and your industry’s challenges in order to deliver a timely, relevant message with takeaways that are unforgettable and talked about long after the event.

“Jade comes to the mainstage extremely well-prepared. She sounded like she had been working with us for a very long time. She aligned with our messaging. A lot of speakers say they do that, but it’s often artificial. With Jade, it’s completely genuine.”

Barb Orvis

Senior Meetings & Events Planner, Voya Financial™

“Jade works for virtually any audience. Truly! Her messaging resonates both personally and professionally. It’s because who you are as a person affects how you show up professionally. That’s why she appeals to people – whether you’re a corporate leader, an emerging star, a spouse at a meeting, she’s talking to YOU and how YOU show up.”

Vice President & Executive Agent, Big Speak


Activates ANY Audience

Jade Transcends Audience Demographics. She’s a communications chameleon able to encourage entrepreneurial upstarts, motivate middle management, or spur on seasoned senior leadership in a single bound!

Powerfully Personable

Any top notch performer can captivate on stage. Jade lives for one-on-one time with attendees long after her presentation is done. Even drivers, waiters, stage hands, security, and maintenance marvel at the fact that she lives her message “in real life” once the spotlight has faded.

“In over 35 years that I have been producing and directing all types of events, with scores of talented performers, Jade is one of the very best. Not just because she is incredibly talented, an amazing musician, an engaging speaker, but because she is just such a nice and beautiful person. She took time to treat people as if they were her friends. She is the nicest person we have ever worked with, and she killed her performance.”

Steve Whyte

University Event Manager/Certified Protocol Officer, University of the Pacific

“As planners, by nature, we are control freaks, total perfectionists. Jade was phenomenal, she delivered, and then some! She made my team, my company, and me, all look great.”
