“Inspiring, uplifting, empowering, life changing — that was the phenomenal response we received from the community of women at KPMG to Tara’s presentation on 10 rules for brilliant women. Tara truly has a gift for captivating her audience and communicating profound ideas with a beautiful simplicity that enables the attendees to understand, grasp and adopt the insights to create meaningful change. I am so glad I reached out and invited Tara to speak at KPMG and so very grateful that she accepted the invitation. Thank you again Tara for sharing your insights and inspiration with us!” — Anupreet Sethi, KPMG Network of Women (KNOW) Leadership Council.

“I invited Tara to present at the UC-Berkeley/Haas School of Business Women in Leadership conference. She was a joy to work with and very quickly honed in themes and workshop activities that resonated with the audience. She is a dynamic, engaging speaker and her enthusiasm and passion for her work is infectious.” — Laura Unger, Manager, Google

“For the past ten years, I’ve attended about thirty conferences every year. Tara Sophia Mohr on today’s webinar was one of the best speakers I’ve heard — ever!” — Teri Bump, VP University Relations/Student Development, American Campus Communities

“It was a pleasure to have Tara speak to my women’s networking group, EVEnts. From the moment I asked her to be my guest speaker right through the dinner she was a delight to work and partner with. My group loved Tara’s take on a “calling” and managing our inner voice. When the theme in the room changed Tara was able to alter her talk to empower each and every guest from the place they listen. I feel so fortunate to have been able to have her in my midst. I was such a fan before and now even more so!” — Jeanne Stafford, Stafford & Company, Ltd.

“Absolutely loved your presentation at SOCAP:Soul. Your eloquently expressed insights were unmatched. My top take-away from the conference was yours: “I realized I was more loyal to my fears than to my dreams and desires…” Thank you!” — Judith Sissener, Vice President, Community Development and President, PulpFriction, PulpWorks, Inc.

In the end, having Tara speak to my community of women was not just a good business idea for both of us, it was truly a gift; a gift to give my people and a gift to witness and be a part of.
