What They Are Saying


"Many people tout their frameworks on impact, but Tami Kesselman is the real deal. Tami is one of the top minds in thinking about how to strike the right balance between financial success and impact results. Her SMART Impact framework is simple to incorporate yet profound in its ability to identify one's impact blind spots."

Adi Ignatius 

Editor in Chief, Harvard Business Review

“Tami impresses on so many levels - high energy, entrepreneurial spirit, and the rare ability to both see new opportunities and make them happen. I had the pleasure of working with Tami some years ago on strategic international environmental, economic and sustainability issues for business, and I still consider her one of the most knowledgeable, capable and imaginative people I have ever encountered. She is a generous leader, a valuable partner and a tireless professional.”

Noreen Kennedy, U.S. Council for International Business 
VP, Strategic Int'l Engagement, Energy & Environmental Affairs  

“The entire audience was captivated from the moment she started speaking."

Tami provided training to AIESEC at Yale University about (1) how to do strategic long-term planning and (2) how to use the lessons learned from AIESEC in your career after graduation. She was awesome. The entire audience was captivated from the moment she started speaking. Tami is friendly, disarming, persuasive, and extremely engaging. Most importantly, her enthusiasm is infectious. Her stories and advice brought a combination of excitement & thoughtfulness 

- exactly what you want from any speaker.

"Tami’s approach to charity & impact is 100% unique!  Her SMART Impact and SMART Charity frameworks transformed the way I look at and evaluate impact and charitable giving. If you can attend her course, do it!  The frameworks she teaches will forever shift your views on impact, making you a more powerful investor, & philanthropist!"

Tami is gifted, knowledgeable, and fun.  I found the SMART Charity webinar very helpful for my personal charity and non-profit board. She has a very strategic viewpoint, gets the human side of the equation.

Tami is extremely personable, well-connected and smart. She will go the extra mile to deliver on promises and meet expectations. She's an innovative thinker, always making links across well-entrenched silos, which is exactly why we hired her!

Working with Tami had such an impact on my perspective as an entrepreneur. With a powerful abundance mindset, Tami made me see all the opportunities available for the growth of my social impact business. Working from different cities with a flexible agenda was a great way to feel supported by her perspectives and advice. I really love Tami's way of bringing all players to the table to co-create and achieve our highest mission from a collaborative and empowered perspective! 

Lorrana Scarpioni

CEO, Beliive

"Working with Tami has been an absolute pleasure. Tami is nothing short of dynamic, and fully surpasses the expectations one would regularly place on a colleague. Not only is she highly adept at networking and creating professional synergies, but also displays a remarkably keen intellect, and
a capacity to conceptualize, plan, and coordinate the full-scale implementation of projects and programs internationally, and across sectors. Tami's demeanor is fantastic, she is incredibly supportive, kind, and friendly, while still always maintaining a goal-oriented structure and purpose. Her passion for social development is infectious and drives those around her to actively seek engagement in whatever platform she may be affiliated. She has been hugely influential to my work, as a member of the [United Nations'] World We Want Policy Strategy Group, and I would highly recommend her services to all working to encourage global cooperation."

Austin Schiano, Global Youth Advocate                  UN Millennium Campaign

Tami has been an amazing mentor over the years...She readily shares her wisdom and is highly concerned with the success of anyone she mentors.
