How “Givers Gain” Actually Works for Business Leaders With Advocate Hearts


The self-development part and the networking part were both helpful for me. We don’t really have the networking culture like the US in Asia. So I learned how to be confident, and how to tell a good story.

Tara was an incredible keynote presenter at a packed event on Pitching yourself to the media at a Six Degrees Society Event. She is one of the most connected individuals in the NYC area and is phenomenal at helping you get your business in front of the right media outlets and understanding the positioning of your brand.
— Emily Merrell, Founder of Six Degrees Society
I’ve been to a lot of talks and I have never heard anything like this! I am blown away!
— N.C. (attendee)
I was very impressed. I feel like I have so many ideas for how I can improve my communication at work.
— Anonymous Feedback from an Attendee
I’m always scared of the idea of rebranding, so it was really reassuring to hear that there are ways to go about it that don’t come off as disingenuous or awkward.
— J.M., Digital Marketing Intern
My biggest takeaway was: habits can be changed, and now that I’ve identified where my habit of asking permission comes from, I feel much more empowered to tackle it head on. Thank you!
— K.G. (attendee)
I am still thinking about the rubber band you mentioned in your talk and I was feeling really bad about my progress but then I realized I am on the wrong side of the rubber band and I instantly felt lighter. Now I know exactly what I need to do to move forward and I can use this over and over again. Thank you!
— A.F. (attendee)
I loved hearing Tara’s story at a Six Degrees Event! As an introvert, I am finding it hard to market myself - especially in the yoga world where humility is valued and self-promotion can feel really inauthentic. Tara reinforced the idea that I have a gift to share, and that part of teaching is sharing your gifts with your community, especially through the art of storytelling. I have spent a large portion of my life teaching, and Tara made me realize that the same teaching skills used in the classroom are valuable in the yoga and Ayurveda world as well. She is great at making connections.

Tara Rae Bradford is a media consultant, international speaker, writer, and sought after leadership coach who has worked with everyone from startup founders to Inc 500 executives to help them feel more understood and successful. She spent nearly a decade helping coach individuals and families through tragedies as a critical care nurse and now is thrilled she can meet individuals when they are thriving to help them through transitions either through her company Rae Media Group where she helps personal brands leverage earned media and thought leadership for business development or through her coaching practice where she works with leaders to help them communicate more effectively, develop problem-solving skills, and understand how they make decisions so they can be more effective, confident leaders.

 Tara brings her background in Neuroscience, Psychology, Biochemistry, and Social & Behavioral Sciences into her coaching practice. She is also certified in high-performance coaching, neurolinguistics, hypnotherapy, success coaching, emotional freedom techniques, and TIME techniques; and she has trained under former Emory Director Marc Cordon in Positive Psychology. Her coaching approach is rooted in skill building through emotional intelligence and understanding how we are biologically programmed so her clients can not only thrive through the challenges that are in front of them, but they can also learn how to maintain these new habits when not faced with adversity.

After being featured in the media every two weeks for 24 months, including writing for HuffPost and ThriveGlobal, as well as being featured in Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Bustle, and more, she found other coaches and business owners inquiring about how they could build an audience by leveraging public relations. She created her program Imposter to Influencer and started her PR agency in response to this need and her desire to improve the media landscape through positive messages that are using influence for the greater good.

Tara also is a guest lecturer in the communications department at Fordham University on Brand Identity and speaks regularly at women’s conferences on goal setting, success and failure, communication strategies, self-promotion, personal branding, leadership, and influence. Her audiences frequently walk away expressing gratitude for the actionable tools they learned that they can use to shift their perspectives on the challenges they face in their everyday lives.

Tara lives in New York City where she meets at least one new person every day (even as an introvert).
