Simone is a co-leader with me in the Ellevate Network Entrepreneurs community. I had the pleasure to experience first hand her excellent skills as facilitator and panel moderator at a recent Ellevate Network Entrepreneurs event. Simone did a superb job of canvassing the audience on their most critical challenges around pricing their products and services. She then asked each panelist specific and probing questions to ensure the audience received great value from the discussion. The reviews of that session were off the charts! Attendees were exceptionally engaged and left with immediate strategies they can apply to their businesses.

I recently engaged Simone Sloan to speak at The NYC Inter-Connected Professionals Group's monthly event. I was extremely impressed with her presentation - a sentiment expressed by the members of the group as well. Simone Sloan's topic, how to present a clear and concise business pitch, was clear, concise, and well-articulated. Simone provided us with effective tips, and further enabled The NY Inter-Connected Professionals Group's participants to practice and find ways to optimize their pitch. Her presentation was engaging, educational, and fun! I highly recommend her for any audience.

I had the pleasure of working with Simone Sloan on my business. Prior to working with Simone, I functioned more as a consultant instead of a business owner. Simone helped me change my mindset of how to operate my business. Key areas that we worked on were messaging and planning, setting business objectives, and creating marketing communications. Throughout the process, she held me accountable for my actions. The ability to communicate differently about my business has enabled me to access more opportunities to grow my business.

“It has been a pleasure working with Simone as a strategist and Marketing consultant for my vitamin business. Her ability to sincerely listen to our company challenges and turn them into a structured plan has helped our focus tremendously. Her extensive knowledge in the health and wellness field has definitely been a plus since most strategists are not skilled in that area. I look forward to finalizing a successful strategy and marching forward with direction!”

Simone takes networking to master levels. Not only is she personable, charming, wise and witty, she genuinely enjoys meeting and speaking with new people. She generously and quickly will do her utmost to connect you with the person you need. I chose to hire Simone to work with me on the development of a business idea because of her varied background. Her experience with creating, running, growing and marketing business benefited me as an 'all in one' source. Her insights were always spot on. For anyone starting up a new business or looking to take one to the next level, a conversation with Simone should be on the top of your must do list.

Every business owner needs a strategist and coach like Simone. She can see the "big picture," your weaknesses and your strengths. She asked the tough questions to make sure that I had the right foundation in place to succeed. She helped me fill out details in my business model that I didn't know existed and taught me how to negotiate some tricky situations with clients. Last but certainly not least, she taught me how to price my services in order to meet my financial goals. I emerged from her coaching more knowledgeable and confident.

Simone spoke at my executive networking group’s year-end meeting, and her dynamic presentation style helped get our goals on track for 2018! The work sheet she provided gave us an easy way to map out the steps needed to achieve our heart’s desires. It is now hanging in my office, and I will often refer to this blueprint all year long!Lisa Marie Latino, VP of Programs

Simone led a workshop for a women’s networking group that I belong to, Believe Inspire Grow (BIG). I was very impressed with her knowledge, confidence, and inspiring presentation style. She led us through exercises that were participatory and fun. She taught us that the decisions we make as business owners should be value based, (loyalty, trust, etc) and should be in alignment with our own personal values. I connected immediately to this! Her workshop was very worthwhile and I look forward to learning more from Simone.

Praises for Simone Sloan!
Working with her has changed how I view myself as a business woman and entrepreneur. She has helped me understand the value of clear concise messaging, what branding really involves while listening with a keen ear for the true value statements. Equally as important, Simone understands who I am as a person, and asks questions that allow me to uncover the true essence of what I need to move forward and be held accountable for my actionable steps. We laugh, have fun and remain focused to accomplish big and small tasks at every meeting.
5 star rating!!!

I am the founder and owner of a social media marketing and events agency in Northern New Jersey. I met Simone at a BIG networking event and after we met to discuss my business, I knew Simone was the right coach to help me grow my agency to its full potential. Simone helped me expand my business by helping me examine what road blocks were in front of me and helping me to remove them.
Through exercises, discussion, analysis and constant support, Simone gently guided me and made suggestions that let me reach my goals, which included increasing my number of clients and my revenue as well as assembling metric reports to send to my clients. She has also shown me my value as an entrepreneur and that is now my guiding light.
My work with Simone has proven invaluable and I highly recommend her to any entrepreneur looking to grow their business.
