"When the Going Gets Tough, How to Decide to Get Going Tamara spent over fifteen years on trading floors around the world fascinated by how professional decision-makers make, and how they live with the outcomes of decisions. By digging deep into individual value systems, and how these are managed in an organisational context, Tamara examined how difficult decisions were made in times of stress. Through her observations on the trading floor, Tamara shares how you can make the best decisions, and how to ensure that you remain comfortable with what ensues. She is passionate about driving business onward as a force for good and believes that an empowered employee, at any level, can support positive organizational growth. A recognized thought leader in the finance ecosystem, Tamara regularly drives the conversation on subjects such as Decision Making, Inclusion, the Future of Work, and Pursuit of the Sustainable Development Goals. Through this Keynote attendees will leave empowered with tangible steps to own & control their decisions."
"Following a decade in the United Kingdom and two years in Hong Kong, Tamara returned to Singapore in 2012. A multi-disciplinary Business Manager, her experience spans energy, financial services, and fund management, covering trading floors in London, New York, as well as across Asia. Tamara recently departed GIC Pte Ltd, Singapore’s Sovereign Wealth Fund, to launch a solution to reduce the costs of compliance for Financial Institutions. Tamara previously served Centrica Plc, BP Oil International, Deutsche Bank, Macquarie Bank, and Westpac Banking Corporation. She is a member of the Investment Managers Association of Singapore's Digital Innovation Committee and works with industry groups to drive the adoption of solutions to reduce common challenges within the finance ecosystem. Tamara has degrees in Law and in Applied Accounting, and attained an Executive Masters in Business Administration from INSEAD whilst pregnant with her second child, which she cites as being “efficient but not necessarily recommended”."
I've had the pleasure to collaborate and work with Tamara for the past two years on a range of projects and events. Not only is she enthusiastic and dedicated she’s also an excellent writer and facilitator of engaging content. Tamara is also a very energetic speaker who manages to keep the audience actively engaged throughout.
