In this week’s episode of the SIMPLE brand With Matt Lyles podcast I'm continuing our recap of some of the standout lessons that we learned in 2021.

In this episode, you'll hear clips from some of the standout guests giving lessons that'll really help you understand what it means to create a simple experience for your people. You'll hear from:


 Brian Rafferty (Episode 55) as he shares the benefits when you focus on a culture of simplicity in the workplace
