2023 CREW Network Convention Closing General Session Speaker
Jade Simmons is an internationally acclaimed creator of mind-blowing, transformational experiences and one-of-a-kind, inspirational adventures designed to activate audiences into becoming the biggest, boldest version of themselves. The world-class concert artist has been called a “musical force of nature” with an “uncanny ability to connect with the sounds of today.” Jade is the CEO of Jade Media Global, which is a revolutionary, live experience and global content distribution company specializing in 360º personal development and strategic transformation.
Following an artistic epiphany, she pivoted from playing the piano to impress audiences, to utilizing music as the vehicle to provide the inspiration, entertainment, and transformation that profoundly activates them instead.
Nicknamed “Classical Music’s #1 Maverick,” her electrifying, genre-bending concert adventures span Beethoven all the way to rap, and include virtuoso storytelling, uncommon insights, and boundless inspiration.
Today, Jade’s experiences not only delight concert audiences, but her dazzling, high-impact experience is fast becoming the go-to fuel for the world’s superlative brands and organizations from financial services, biotech, entertainment, education, energy and beyond. The likes of Dell, Raytheon, NBC Universal, Pfizer, Intuit Quickbooks, Nationwide, Hershey’s, Barrons, and the Royal Bank of Canada are bringing Jade in to power up their people.
In her inimitable career as a concert pianist, Jade has remained committed to expanding the boundaries of Classical music. Simmons has extensively toured the US in recital and with orchestra, which are highlighted by performances at venues as wide-ranging as: Ravinia, the Chicago Sinfonietta in Symphony Hall, New York's Town Hall, Detroit Institute of Arts, and the halls of the White House. She has been named one of the Best of South By Southwest and has also received the Sphinx Organization's Medal of Excellence in a concert held at the US Supreme Court.
Simmons is also the author of the best-selling book Audacious Prayers for World Changers. As an equal-opportunity disrupter, in 2020, the Maverick made her boldest leap yet as founder of Operation Restoration, which powered her run as an Independent candidate for President of the United States.
