“In terms of both business development and company exposure, the return on investment for Billboard Magazine was tremendous. This type of event does not exist anyplace else. I had access to a multitude of various industries most important people. I left Tam’s event with a pocket full of business cards, two new friends and the ultimate networking experience. Tam is one of the smartest and most dynamic business professionals we have ever done business with.”
“I have found that Tam’s events are so successful for me that I stopped doing any other networking events. I just canceled everything because Tam is the most effective facilitator of business I have ever met. People could just pay Tam to introduce them and then they could fire their entire sales team. You are a genius Tam.”

“St. Armand Ventures events have proven to be a most valuable and effective business development tool, both personally and professionally. Our firm of accountants specializes in providing business management and tax services to entertainers, sports figures, entrepreneurs and high net worth families. Through Tam St. Armand we have enjoyed the benefits of introductions to a vast array of individuals and firms which have enhanced our company’s development efforts. In addition we have been able to introduce our clients to various service providers outside of our disciplines. These cross referrals, who have already been vetted by Tam herself, make our services more important to our own clients. As if that isn’t enough, the events, in and of themselves, are informative and fun. They are always a good time.”

“Tam’s networking events are very productive, informative and most importantly, a lot of fun. She creates a great atmosphere for making new contacts and connecting the dots with people in all sorts of businesses. If you attend one of her events, I will see you there because in over eight years I have never missed one; I make a point to attend every one of Tam’s events.”

“Sometimes you go to a networking event and come home exhausted. Sometimes you come home excited, full of new ideas and eager to continue conversations with the people you’ve met. The St. Armand Ventures Experience always leaves me energized and ready for more. Weaving together people, practical knowledge and dreams, St. Armand Ventures Experiences are nothing short of magical. Tam is truly a master at this rare – but essential – art.
Steven Skyles-Mulligan, Executive Director
Tam successfully gathers likeminded people who are sincere about taking time to learn about each other and assist each other in business and in life, and I have found the events to be an exceptional use of my time. As a result of attending, I’ve been able to better serve clients and have received valuable insight on personal matters.”

“Tam’s events are a great platform for meeting influential people in a wide range of industries and fields. From the emerging artist, the corporate CEO, the Film Director and Investment Banker, Tam surrounds herself with dynamic people on a global platform. These are people who are on their game and know how to make things happen. These gatherings make for a positive business experience that lasts far beyond the events and often leads to substantial business development and meaningful connections well beyond one’s expectations.”

“I have known Tam for several years and besides her great personality she has that strong will to connect people together. She is especially good at matching people for successful business. Because of her background she knows a lot of very powerful people in all aspects of business and in the global marketplaces. She loves connecting people and it shows in the results.
Tam has introduced me to some of the most prominent, key people in the luxury business and that has helped our company tremendously to get where we need to go in a short period of time. It’s all about who you know and your success rate is measured by it. Thanks, Tam.”
Rene Lautrec, President
“I just loved your networking event- it felt like an instant gathering of a peer group, almost like a reunion. You were so magical that everyone felt welcome and instantly connected. I met several people that I contacted the next day and they are now part of my network. Thank you again for including me- most of all, thank you for respecting the time we have together.”
“Tam’s events are the real deal. Prepare to meet important people in a top notch setting. Tam goes the extra mile at these events creating an atmosphere where anything is possible. A single contact made at one of Tam’s events is worth twenty made at any other networking event.”

“In this day and age networking has become an essential part of building a business. We are all invited to so many events that it becomes difficult to decide which to attend….not any longer! Tam’s events have been so personally and professionally rewarding that they are now the only events that I attend. Keep it up Tam and can’t wait for the next one.”

“Tam is a truly extraordinary and dynamic individual. Her incredible events follow in that same vain bringing together the most successful, entrepreneurial and bright minds in unique and exciting venues. Through Tam’s events, many timely and auspicious introductions have been made. From those first small introductions, many immense opportunities and lucrative long lasting relationships have matured. As well, Tam always acts with the utmost integrity. What more can be said? Both Tam and the events she organizes are world class!”

“We truly enjoyed the St. Armand Ventures event. George and I felt the event had good energy and we felt very comfortable meeting and talking with so many professional people. It was very well planned and the Porsche/Rolls Royce dealership made for a great setting. The night was upbeat and fun and we were able to make some fantastic, great connections for our 14 Karak music company. We had a wonderful time! Thank you so much for inviting us.”

“My partners and I have been attending Tam’s Experiences since inception. There are no other networking events like them – anywhere. Invariably, we enjoy a fabulous venue, a great culinary experience, new cultural experiences and the company of a group of noteworthy people. Each time this had lead to making great friends as well as great business opportunities in areas ranging from real estate to green energy and more.”

“The St. Armand Ventures event I recently attended was a refreshing change of pace. The work that went into assembling such a diverse and quality crowd was evident — and the resulting connections had a strong personal component to them not found in most business settings. I can only attribute this to Tam’s keen sense of people and attention to detail. I found it really worthwhile.

“Tam’s networks of alliances encompass a vast number of prestigious and successful individuals from all walks of business and philanthropic efforts worldwide. After attending just one of Tam’s elegant and fun events, I was instantly connected to numerous highly qualified business opportunities in my respective field. Tam is brilliant and I welcome her next invitation!”

“Prepare yourself to expect spectacular results. Tam’s extraordinary events go far beyond networking. Introductions to high-caliber people of distinction and ensuing fruitful business relationships are what I have experienced. Tam’s warm and authentic nature shines through as she actively pairs guests to generously benefit them and their businesses. Her world-class productions integrate art, music, and business, taking the experience to a high level. To receive an invitation is an honor, as her events are in a class by themselves. There is truly nothing that compares.”
Olympia Hostler, President
“Tam has become a friend of mine. I truly appreciate her events which allow us to meet other people who are working in an exemplary way. The people that I have met have been naturally synergistic to success exponentially. Great people, whose success in their own work makes it a pleasure to sit down with them.
There is a story that crickets only begin to sing when they are in a group of six. I think this is a truism. The New York Renaissance Peace Angel Monument will have a base of thirty people who have done “extreme good” for our world. The base is called: ”The Conversation”. That is what changes the world. Tam’s embrace manifests a sacred space for this level of high quality conversation. And, given this, we can change the world.”

“Attending one of Tam’s parties is like walking into one of your favorite issues of Vanity Fair: there’s something for everyone. Great conversations are breaking-out everywhere because Tam’s hand-picked crowd comes ready to talk. Politics… art… commerce… science… and, yes, even a little schmoozing (the good kind). At the end of the last party I attended, I left with a passel of business cards and easily two weeks worth of great lunch dates…”
