What people have said about us
“I enjoy working with Simon very much. He has unique and interesting ideas in cross marketing his band on multiple levels that are very effective. He secures endorsements that work well to promote his bands. Simon is a very motivated marketing and promotion oriented professional.”Bill McNally, Burnside Distribution Co
“Simon Tam is in the know on everything my musician clients need to know to make a positive difference in their careers. His book “How to Get Sponsorships and Endorsements” is now my go to manual when planning my next step to take one of my bands I manage to the next level. So much time is wasted and not to mention money when attempting to navigate the world of acquiring sponsors for musicians and Simon’s book has kept me from more of that in my managing schedule. You won’t be disappointed. I recommend this to all creative people who need help and don’t want to falter unnecessarily.”Tammy Hunt, Hunt Talent Management
“Simon is a tremendously talented individual, and, given his strong leadership skills and deep knowledge base in the areas of marketing, promotion, and business development, it is not surprising that he has such a well-established track record of success.”Spencer Trowbridge, Of Counsel at McNamer and Company P.C.
