Velma Simmons

Founder of L.I.F.E Talks & Brand Partnerships Manager

Velma Simmons is a Brand Partnerships manager at ASOS by day handling global third-party brand partnerships, and then in the evening the Founder of L.I.F.E Talks UK. L.I.F.E Talks UK is a platform that started when Velma witnessed first-hand how hard it was to break into the entertainment industry. She saw that there was a lot of encouragement for young people to fulfill their dreams across the pond with initiatives such as Revolt Music Conference, but nothing that stood close in the UK. This eventually led to the birth of London’s own L.I.F.E Talks, L.I.F.E Talks stands for Learning from Intelligent Fearless Entrepreneurs. Its aim is to push the culture forward and help inspire the next generation! L.I.F.E Talks has had amazing speakers such as Karen Civil, Lenny ‘Kodak Lens’ Santiago, and Swizz Beatz, her passion is to grow the platform beyond the entertainment sector but in all sectors to let everyone know their dreams are achievable!
