Purpose the Remix: A Mind-Blowing Reunderstanding of Purpose and How It Works

Based on her latest book of the same title, this session is designed to help audiences reimagine, reconnect with, and reignite purpose and all the powers that come with it.

Jade is an unexpected phenomenon who remixed the way things were done in both the classical music and professional speaking industries. Now, she’s remixing purpose by bringing us a brand new, life-altering understanding of what purpose truly is and how it really works.

It’s the definition that has been changing lives at first hearing since she first said it out loud almost 8 years ago. After years of activating private corporate audiences and high powered individuals into a purpose-fueled life, Jade’s taking purpose public in Purpose the Remix.

Audience reviews:

  • 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. The talk backstage was…”she is the nicest person we have ever worked with… and she killed her performance.

    - University Event Manager/Certified Protocol Officer, University of the Pacific
  • Jade really set the tone for us to enable a different kind of experience for the participants – helping tried and true leaders get a new feeling!

    - Human Capital Consultant, Deloitte
  • 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.

    - Senior Meetings & Events Planner, Voya Financial
  • 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.

    - Consultant/Creative Services, Meeting & Event Management, Nationwide
  • Such an amazing keynote speaker! So unique! Everything she said resonated with me. She is making me “remix” my thoughts on myself and my work. Thank you for bringing a dynamic woman. Truly Jade made this experience for me. I’m changed!
