USA Today and Wall Street Journal Best-Selling Author
Tamara Nall lives by the mantra, “to whom much is given, much is required,” and uses this to guide both her personal and business lives. Her debut book, Busines Success Secrets, is an anthology of the entrepreneurial journeys of 34 authors whose stories reveal the successes, failures and secrets to help any entrepreneur on the journey to building and/or growing a business.
Ms. Nall is the President and CEO of THE LEADING NICHE, an award winning and internationally recognized company known for using data and cutting-edge consulting to deliver ‘actionable intelligence’. THE LEADING NICHE supports commercial and government customers in domestic and international markets, including the United States, Canada, Europe and Africa. The Firm provides big data, cybersecurity, intelligence, Health IT, regulatory/compliance and investigative/examination consulting. She is also a Forbes contributing author and curates intellectual capital for the company’s research arm, NALL-EDGE.
In addition to her own professional commitments, Mrs. Nall mentors seven small businesses to help them develop strategies to establish and grow their companies. Many of them have moved from home-based businesses to having their own offices and have seen revenue and profit growth increase, on average, twenty-percent (20%). In an effort to mold young entrepreneurs who may otherwise not have these opportunities afforded to them, Mrs. Nall began an internship program at THE LEADING NICHE that employs students in underserved communities and provides on-the-job training, which includes analytics and market research. Many of these interns have graduated from the program and moved on to part-time and full-time jobs that have advanced their careers. In particular, the first intern with whom Mrs. Nall worked in the program began on state assistance. This young lady, who had never worn a business suit before, went from naivety of business etiquette to supporting the work of the company and advancing in the Firm. As a graduate of the THE LEADING NICHE Emerging Leaders program, this former intern now holds the #2 position for a local non-for-profit in Manhattan.
Prior to founding THE LEADING NICHE, Ms. Nall was a Senior Associate with Booz & Company (formerly Booz Allen Hamilton). While at Booz & Company, Mrs. Nall led engagements in industries such as healthcare, retail, telecommunications, and government in the United States and Canada. Mrs. Nall’s work focused on assisting senior clients with corporate strategy, growth strategy, mergers/acquisitions, as well as restructuring and market and pricing strategies.
Mrs. Nall holds an MBA from The Harvard Business School in Boston, MA. She earned a BS degree in Chemical Engineering from The Georgia Institute of Technology and a BBA from Emory University in Atlanta, GA. She received an honorary degree, Doctor of Humane Letters from Luther Rice College and Seminary in Atlanta, Georgia.
