We are thrilled to have Tami McCarthy as a speaker at the Design Bloggers Conference. Tami is the Founder and CEO of TMG PR, Inc., a leading boutique marketing communications agency based in New York City. Recognized as a leading force and one of the top creative thinkers in the communications arena, Tami founded TMG in 1996. Today, TMG is an award-winning, full- service agency, providing cutting-edge services in public relations, brand positioning, social media and digital marketing, as well as special events to clients in the consumer goods, financial services, design and media industries. In fact, Tami and her TMG team were instrumental in the successful launch of NCI’s DigitalSherpa division which began in 2009 with CommunitySherpa for the apartment industry, and now includes other verticals such as DesignSherpa, BrokerSherpa, and CampaignSherpa. Recently, Tami was named by Forbes as One of the Top 30 Women to follow on Twitter, and writes a popular blog called Buzzcloud. Tami, who is a graduate of the prestigious Parsons School of Design, lives in Greenwich, with her husband Dan and her three children, Ryan, Julian and Luke, and two stepchildren, William and Rebecca. She is not sure how it happened but their house has 3 dogs too — Bella, Charlie and Taco.
