The genesis of Simon Says Lead became clear to us with our sleeves rolled up in the mist of launching the nonprofit Simon Says Give. With the hard work, determination and unstoppable results we were experiencing – we knew there was one more piece to the puzzle. We knew the business problem we wanted to solve internally was: how to create a for-profit that would feed profits into the nonprofit. The business problem we wanted to solve for our external clients: how to create a consulting company with an umbrella of talent to help solve any business or leadership challenge.

Our purpose is to help individuals and companies be unstoppable. To be unstoppable, you need loyal followers, a compelling offer, smart systems and creative ways to solve any business problem. Simon Says Lead gives you all that and more.

For business strategist Jeffry Brown, positive, strategic and insightful are the words that clients use to describe his coaching and consulting style. He knows how to turn opportunity into reality with ideas that are strategic and sound. In his early years at Apple he headed the Hal team and learned the importance of thinking differently – helping envision what was to become the iPhone and iPad.
