From being part of the elite group of TED speakers to completing three Tough Mudders (and counting), Tamara’s life is about breaking through the status quo for game-changing results.
As the founder of LaunchStreet, helping teams and organizations across the globe compete, and win, by tapping the power of innovation, Tamara knows what it takes to drive growth and innovation daily in an ever-changing market-place. As the creator of the Innovation Quotient Edge (IQE) Assessment, Tamara has developed the only tool able to measure people’s natural innovation strengths and deliver insights and tools for performing at their peak, bringing more innovative ideas to the table, and building high performance teams.
At 27 she was the youngest person ever named to leadership in a leading global advertising agency. If you’ve walked the aisles of Target you’ve pushed your cart past products and brands that have benefited from Tamara’s innovative approach – everything from Cheerios and Johnsonville Sausage to Procter & Gamble and Clorox. When companies like Disney, General Mill, RICOH and Red Robin want to up their innovation quotient, they call Tamara. Her business innovation podcast, Inside LaunchStreet, is listened to by thousands of innovators across the globe.
She has run multi-million dollar businesses and launched a few of her own, learning from her successes and, most importantly, her failures. Tamara has been featured on the TODAY SHOW, EO FIRE Podcast, the New York Times, Denver Business Journal, NBC 9News and on radio stations across the country. As a kid in computer camp, Tamara won the “I’ll try anything once” award – a motto she still lives by.
