When the 2016 Obama White House needed someone to teach presidential appointees public speaking skills, they called Tamara. When the U.S. Marines Corps needed a competent speaker to teach spouses of military officers around the world how to speak with power, passion, and confidence, they called Tamara.
She will inspire you, entertain you, and touch your heart as she demonstrates the power of public speaking and how it has impacted her life and career. She is an Accredited Speaker — the first Black woman in the world inducted into the Toastmasters Hall of Fame. A designation held by only 87 Toastmasters out of a membership of 366,000 worldwide in 146 countries. When she is not on stage, she is teaching public workshops on how to master public speaking skills. Tamara retired from the National Education Association in 2012 as its first Executive Coach for Leadership and Career Development. She is currently the CEO of Audacious Coaching, facilitating issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. You can learn more about Tamara on her website tamarashamilton.com.
