Tamara Stenn designs interactive workshops that enable participants to view their environments in new and different ways.

Tamara Stenn is just the person you’d expect to find swapping quinoa recipes with indigenous women in the Bolivian Andes, lecturing at an economics classroom at a US university, facilitating participants in a transformative workshop, or hawking her sustainable wares at international trade shows.  She is available to speak at events, workshops and classrooms and is known for her hard-hitting case studies, real life experiences and interactive presentation style. Presentations can be given in English or Spanish.

Author/activist Bill McKidden called Tamara’s work in Fair Trade and well-being, “…serious examination of what those words really mean!”

Professor/author Mary A. Litterall states: “Tamara Stenn skillfully interweaves macro and micro perspectives of Fair Trade for understanding the complexities and opportunities for Fair Trade in the global market.”

Business owner/activist Dean Cycon of Dean’s Beans vouches: “Her (Tamara) work in Bolivia, her compassion and hard-nosed business sense combine well with the desire and ability of her Bolivian partners to create a real picture of why Fair Trade matters.”
