Vish Walia, Microsoft

You helped us get to the heart of the matter… with heart. You created a space that broke down barriers and made us feel safe to say hard things in the presence of one another.  We all came out better for it. Thank you!

Wendy Wilcox, YOLO County D.A.'s Office

“I first saw Tamara speak at a Women’s conference. It was during a time when I was reevaluating my business model and needed to find the exact right change. Tamara’s session helped me get out of my own limiting perspective and approach the situation very differently. It is a long story, but this path ultimately led to me selling my company – allowing my business partner (my mom!) to retire. I knew that my local association could benefit from Tamara’s message, so this year I suggested we bring her out to a tradeshow event. The response was overwhelmingly positive. I am still hearing rave reviews!”

Lindsey Whitney, Rocky Mountain Regional Promotional Products Association

“Tamara’s a dynamic presenter. Not all virtual events are engaging, let’s be honest. But Tamara’s high energy, passion, and interactivity created a dynamic experience. I am so excited to implement her exercises to generate more innovative ideas. The IQE Assessment was so insightful and a great starting point to understand my strengths and opportunities within innovation. Thank you for making an intimidating topic feel approachable.”

Jenn DeWall, CrestComm

“On behalf of our Manufacturing team, I would just like to say a huge THANK YOU to you!  I received many compliments about how your message was so well received.  The team really enjoyed the workshop you did with them.  It was a tired and tough crowd but you really broke through.  Personally, I learned a lot and really enjoyed your insight.  It was an absolute pleasure working with you and I hope that we have the opportunity to do so again.  I did have a few people ask if they could get a copy of your deck.  If that is possible, I would love to get that out to the team. Again, thank you so much for all you did for us!”

Kelly Egelston, Senior Sales Enablement Specialist, UKG
