"Tami is one of the most incredible speakers I've ever met... She held and engaged the room from start to finish..."

"Tami is one of the most incredible speakers I've ever met. I had the pleasure of being in her session on Achieving Impact & Profit at the Harvard Social Enterprise Conference 2019. She not only held and engaged the room from start to finish with her amazing energy and effortless style of delivery, but also I'm sure every single attendee left her session having learnt so much from her frameworks and examples, and having had many of their assumptions challenged, if not shattered.  I know I did!  

The conference definitely would not have been complete without her."
