TESTIMONIALS:

  1. “Simone really pours her heart and soul into helping others; I feel she is like a mother who purely wants to see you grow. I couldn’t recommend working with her more to anyone looking for an understanding on how the industry works, wanting to gain more confidence in their creative path, joining a community of talented supportive creatives and expanding by gaining insight into the other side of the game. Thank you Simone, for all your heart and effort, I can’t wait for anything further you do down the pipeline!” ~ Mariam Sawires, artist.
  2. “After working with her, what struck me as unique about Simone and her media and branding consulting is it’s targeted towards CaLD groups. It is a real selling point, as I feel it’s a ‘safe’ space to discuss your work and issues. Even if a white person joins in, the focus is still on CaLD experiences.” ~ Kevin Bathman, creative producer and cultural activist.

TESTIMONIALS:

  1. “#GetInTheGame was an amazing, eye-opening, fun and helpful experience. Simone is a powerhouse of knowledge and experiences. Sharing her stories and insights to teach and guide a lovely crew of people over six weeks, I highly recommend this course.” ~ Ben Bel-Bachir a.k.a. Benny Chiefss, radio host and DJ.
  2. “Simone Amelia Jordan’s six-week #GetInTheGame course was truly one of the greatest highlights of my YEAR! Every session was jam-packed full of information that has already been so useful in my career. Simone offers a professional, compassionate, hands-on approach, tending to everyone’s individual needs whilst catering to an incredibly supportive network of like-minded creatives (that I felt so happy to be a part of). After the course, I feel more comfortable navigating myself in the industry whilst being more authentic to values and vision, as well as understanding different tools and strategies for crucial elements like article pitching, using social media, interview prep, knowing the boundaries in different settings, really understanding who you are as an artist and so much more.” ~ Mariam Sawires, artist.
