National Minority Business Council honors THE LEADING NICHE™ for innovation, excellence and global expertise
The National Minority Business Council, Inc.’s (NMBC) Outstanding Global Business Award was awarded to The Leading Niche™. The prestigious NMBC honor is awarded yearly to minority business owners who demonstrate professional excellence, innovative business practices and who continually provide a positive example to others who aspire to similar working disciplines. In addition to the NMBC Global Outstanding Business Award, The Leading Niche™ President and CEO Tamara Nall, will receive the Brooklyn International Trade Development Center’s 2010 International Women’s Entrepreneurial Award.
With this award, Nall, who has worked across a range of industries in the management consulting sector, including telecommunications, healthcare, retail and government, is recognized for her ability to innovate and improve the global standards of management consultancy. The Leading Niche™ has propelled to the forefront of global consulting by providing not just reports and documents, but by providing sustainable and actionable recommendations delivered by a custom team of consultants who is best suited for its particular clients.
Nall, a graduate of Harvard Business School and former senior associate at Booz & Company, and her team of worldwide experts at The Leading Niche™ help clients develop strategies to remain sustainable and competitive in today’s changing marketplace. “Our unique hybrid model brings together consultants from around the world to establish both an on-the-ground and virtual presence, thus allowing us to bring together the best talent to form custom teams for each client,” says Nall. “We recognize that the world’s boundaries are becoming increasingly seamless, and therefore the utilization of alternative methods can make consulting services far more efficient and effective.”
The Leading Niche™ was built during the heart of the economic downturn. Today, as other firms lay off employees, The Leading Niche™ expands thanks to its unique business model that successfully appeals to both domestic and international clients. The model factors in the cultural and regional nuisances that many competitors omit. One prime example of these considerations is the outstanding consulting work The Leading Niche™ has provided to clients in West Africa; where customers are faced with infrastructure and energy issues and where power outages are a common problem. The Leading Niche™ offers strategic, operational and technological recommendations that help its clients compete despite these major obstacles.
