COVID-19 hit us all like a tonne of bricks and we all had to pivot as life, nonetheless, continued. The Office of the National Rapporteur on Trafficking in Persons, for example, had been doing quite a bit of work on its newly minted online resource library and got to the stage where we wanted to have a launch event to announce this library to the world. I am pleased that we made the decision to go with SimSpeak from concept to execution as we effectively pulled off a world-class event with professionalism. SimSpeak understood our vision from day 1 and was able to capture it, package it and present it with attention to every detail imaginable, making our event a global success and creating some very satisfied clients!
Ever the consummate professional, I really enjoyed working with Simone while she was at GraceKennedy. In her new role as consultant to GK, she has remained very responsive and it is always reassuring to know that we can call on her at a moment’s notice and that whatever the task, she is guaranteed to deliver at an exceptionally high standard. I am so pleased that she has embarked on a career path that allows her to combine her passion for teaching with her natural ability to impact persons.
I have known Simone as a consummate media practitioner and communication consultant, for over eight years. She provided Voice and Speech, and media interview coaching and training, for members of my team, from which they benefited tremendously. Simone is a patient and results-oriented specialist, who has the art of encouraging her students to excel no matter the odds. Her winning demeanor and delightful personality drive her to ensure that her clients are comfortable and engaged on their journey to maximizing their potential. That knack allows her to succeed with those with whom she interacts, at all levels of the organization.
I have known Simone for nearly a decade, and we worked closely during her time as GK's Head of Communication. Simone served GK in every aspect of that field - from event planner to emcee; from speech writer to communication strategist. I have always found her to be extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her work. She has the natural ability to seamlessly create messaging which captures the true essence of a person and an idea. Her determination and drive, reliability, and dependability are inspiring, and I am certain she will incorporate those values and characteristics into her own business, SimSpeak. I am also confident that she will continue to succeed in all she does.
