“There is an important gap between knowledge, which is what we usually want to get across in marketing, and people acting, and that missing piece is belief.” – Tamsen Webster

In my Smart Talk Episode 061 conversation with Tamsen Webster you’ll hear about:

  • She shares her story from Weight Watchers leader to SVP of Executive Communications
  • The story of Tobias Otting 
  • How to present the key message of your presentation

Passion Hunter and Idea Whisperer

Tamsen describes herself as a Passion Hunter and Idea Whisperer. In fact, the reason I invited Tamsen on the show is because of her ability to help people and organizations find whatever it is that gives them differentiating power and helps them to articulate that to other people.   In essence I’d like for her to help us learn how to tell the right story to the right people at the right time.

Tamsen Webster is SVP of Executive Communications at Oratium, a Boston-based messaging consultancy, and Executive Producer at TEDxCambridge. She specializes in helping organizations and individuals tell the right story to the right people at the right time. An accomplished speaker, consultant, coach, and writer, Tamsen regularly presents on how to differentiate your brand, how to sell from the stage (without selling from the stage!), and how to craft messaging that resonates with your core audiences. As a retired Weight Watchers leader and newly minted marathoner, she is passionate about the power of transformative journeys.

Tamsen’s next event: Chicago Workshop – August 6 and 7
