Our membership is still raving about Tami! She brought loads of energy, humor and insight to our Western Independent Bankers Summit.

Her commitment to tailoring the keynote and getting to know our attendees was unlike any I’ve seen – such a breeze to work with as well!
Tami Evans’ participation in and production assistance with my “Demystifying Technology for Women” event in NYC was invaluable. Tami’s attention to detail in delivering a perfect event, as well as the delivery of her funny and interactive “Energizer” keynote was amazing. Tami is the consummate professional, who’s focus and energy on the event’s execution made all the difference in its overall success.
Tami Evans recently Keynoted our Annual Client Convention where she delighted our audience with a mix of humor as well as some extremely touching moments. She was wonderful to work with prior to the event, doing her research on our attendees as well as staying in regular communication with me. I would highly encourage you to invite Tami to speak at your next event!
Tami was a joy to have at our Joy Conference. Her upbeat enthusiasm for the whole day spread like wild fire. When I’m having a down day I often will go to her tools and techniques and get my joy juices sparked again. Her message hit the mark with our participants and I would highly recommend her for other conferences.
Tami was dynamite! In addition to her speaking skills, working with her is a meeting coordinator’s dream. She really understood our audience and created an event that was engaging, educational and entertaining. During her presentation she talks about how people can create positive ripples and have a ripple effect. I think Tami creates a positive tidal wave effect!
