Tamara is the founder and CEO of Emoderation, a global social media agency with a team of more than 350 people and Nissan, Oreo, The LEGO Group and The Oprah Winfrey Network among its clients. The majority of her board is female, in contrast to many agencies in the same industry. Due to the way that Tamara has set up the business, with a distributed workforce, she has been able to incorporate diversity into the company’s values. As the team isn’t office based they aren’t defined by location so many cultures are represented in the business. The best person is always hired for the job no matter background, educational history, location or gender. Consequently this has led to a stronger business.
She founded the business in 2002 to share her passion for all things digital. She is also passionate about sharing her experiences and encouraging others in their careers and building businesses. Earlier this year she was a mentor at SXSW to do just this.
Tamara is a founding committee member of SeriesQ, a group for LGBTQ Entrepreneurs in the UK and a member of PrideAM, a group for LGBTQ leaders in the advertising and marketing industry.
