“There is great power in parts of yourself that you cannot change.” – Speaker Jade Simmons

Jade spent the first few years of her career performing as a classical concert pianist. Following an artistic epiphany, she pivoted from playing the piano to impress audiences, to using her leadership skills and her piano as the vehicle by which to provide the inspiration, information and entertainment that profoundly moves them instead.

No stranger to pushing boundaries to see bold results, this concert pianist turned world changer is brought in by the likes of corporations like Mass Mutual, Royal Bank of Canada, DOW, Raytheon, the Hershey Company, Genentech, Valic , Pfizer and Nationwide to redefine purpose, inspire seismic shifts in mindset and activate audiences to go out and instantly start living more consequential lives of impact.

Speaker Jade Simmons’ career has garnered diverse recognition from unlikely places. She has played renowned halls, including the hallowed ones of the White House and the US Supreme Court and her genre-bending concert adventures that span Rachmaninoff to Rap attract diverse  audiences of all ages and backgrounds. For her work on and away from the stage, Essence magazine featured Jade alongside former First Lady Michelle Obama as a part of their Style & Substance List. As one of the rare classical artists invited to perform at the taste-making South by Southwest Festival, her show was ultimately branded one of the “Best of SXSW 2014”.

In her career as a concert pianist and as a media host, Jade has remained committed to expanding the boundaries of classical music and is the new host of shows for both American Public Media and one of NYC’s top rated stations, WQXR.
