Gwen Riley, Event Organizer | TEACH 2007 Homeschool Graduation and Beta Sigma Phi Luncheon 2009
Tamara Walker was wonderful enough to accept an invitation to speak at two very important occasions for me. The first time was for my daughter's high school graduation in 2007. The second time was for my Beta Sigma Phi sorority luncheon of about 200 ladies in the summer of 2009. Tamara Walker can captivate an audience with her genuine charm and heartfelt words. Her warm smile and graciousness puts everyone at ease while always maintaining her professionalism. I certainly recommend Tamara for any occasion, that of an intimate gathering or a filled to capacity cathedral. Sincerely, Gwen Riley

Kealey McIntire, Former Host, All About You on KSBI-TV OK52 | All About You television talk show & Confessions LIVE Relationship Forum for Women
Tamara was so much fun to have as a guest co-host on All About You. She offered fresh perspective on various topics and she wasn't afraid to speak her mind. We liked her so much that we asked her to return for a second appearance. I had the pleasure of attending Confessions Live, The Relationship Forum with Tamara. I heard her speak about the touchy subject of intimacy after children. She did an excellent job of giving out some advice on how to keep the romance going after you've had kids. She even got a few laughs out of the audience during what could have been an uncomfortable talk! My husband and I have two children and I've found some of this advice useful. Tamara is a great speaker & fun to be around. I would definitely recommend her.
Sara Broers , Founder, All In An Iowa Mom's Day, Speaker | Type-A Parent Conference 2012
I had the pleasure of listening to Tamara Walker at the Type A Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina, in June of 2012. She led a session that was called "Breaking Into Podcasting." I decided to attend because it is something I have contemplated doing, but did not know the basics of where to start. Tamara's session was perfect. She broke down the process of starting podcasting in terms the average person could understand. Tamara was knowledgeable about how to get started in podcasting and she also shared great resources that were out there for anyone interested in dipping their feet into podcasting. If you are looking for a speaker that speaks in terms that the average person will grasp, Tamara is your gal.
