Tamara Romeo Keynote Speaker

The Design Boss


Tamara Romeo
Marketing Maven & Branding Bad-A*s that Built a Successful Interior Design Firm

My name is Tamara Romeo, but at work I’m known as “The Design Boss” because I own an award winning commercial interior design firm. For over a decade I’ve been San Diego’s expert that helping business owners to create spaces that employees thrive in, and that clients connect with. With over 3 million square feet of impressive projects in San Diego, I’ve designed some of the most memorable spaces around town and around the globe. This success came after a huge life & career altering shift at the age of 39 which made me rethink everything in my life. This retooling of my life started with a simple question “Why Not?” and led to a major power pivot that led me to find my passion, launch my company, and take on the second half of my life with powerful gusto. I have successfully worked with large international companies and

small start-ups to build brilliant brands and improve performance, increase productivity and enhance employee experience. As our world deals with Covid and its lingering effects it is vital to re-imagine our environments in this new hybrid-work era.
