Tiffany Yarde

Harness the power of relationships...

I'm a business coach and motivational speaker. I'm the founder of a beverage company start up and of Motovino, a NYC-Certified M/WBE professional development company that teaches you how to work smarter and gain allies in the arenas that matter to you most. My programs and talks support professionals interested in gaining a competitive edge in their careers and taking control of their upward mobility. I've spent 14 years navigating Corporate America in accounting, operations, marketing and business development roles for global organizations. Ten of those years were focused in the legal sector and 4 of those years focused in Diversity & Inclusion. 

I'm committed to helping professionals obtain personal growth and a satisfying lifestyle. I turned my experiences into a toolkit that helps people develop leadership skills and learn to cultivate trust from their peers or customers. 


You could say wine and cannabis is my thing... So much so that I'm member of the Society of Wine Educators, Minorities 4 Medical Marijuana, Minority Cannabis Business Association, and a WSET (Wine & Spirit Education Trust) certificate holder.

Phil Cox, Principal

"We had people at the end of their careers and people at the beginning of their careers...all levels in the room, and they were equally engaged. Tiffany can read a room incredibly well. She knows what people need and is always asking questions. She's very professional, and is essentially real, relatable and highly engaging. 

If you're thinking about hiring Tiffany for your next speaking gig, then I would say don't think twice about it. Please do it and enjoy the experience."

“Business can be a great equalizer if properly executed. Tiffany found her equalizer, wine, and it has allowed her to greatly broaden her horizons. She learned early on that having an expert knowledge of wine is her great equalizer. 
She shares not only her motivation, experience and results but gives the reader the tools to duplicate her success. Her mixing of teaching about wine coupled with professional relationship management will help any person entering the work force, or looking to advance, a measured hand up. The book has nice flow and her writing is clear and compelling."
