Tamara’s career started through a Resort Management qualification, leading her into the Spa sector of the therapy industry, with a knowledge of business metrics, which shortly propelled her into the transatlantic ocean and international travel via way of cruise ship employment.
Returning to Australia, Tamara navigated the industry pathway from Clinic and Spa Management into Multisite Management, through a love for team and empowerment of therapists and managers under her leadership.
A further passion for knowledge and education, Tamara conducted state based training and business development for Australia’s largest day spa franchise across Sydney and Queensland, reaching record retail highs during retail strategy days and employment retention rates.
Tamara’s Business Development role progressed further as she transitioned into Australia’s largest laser franchise, working with business owners across traditional, corporate and franchise business models across Australia and New Zealand.
Focused on creating conversations, building community and realigning culture into the professional beauty industry, (while returning the 5 star status our industry once held) is Tamara’s passion.
Beaute Industrie originally birthed in 2017 as a Facebook group of 15 and grew to triple figures shortly thereafter, proving the need for support and inclusive conversation. In April of 2018, Beaute Industrie rebranded and matured into an online business and tangible community for the professional beauty industry.
A lover of champagne, fresh bread with butter (not margarine) and time on the water, Tamara generally spends her weekdays between states and her weekends in Brisbane with her husband, Nathan and her cat, Tigerlily.
Tamara is available for strategy and insight sessions for brands, educators and business owners, as well as presenting and alternative speaking roles, and is not aligned to any one brand or company in particular, holding a neutral and inclusive stance on the beauty industry.

“Tamara Reid was an articulate, insightful and passionate speaker at The Belle Evolution
August 2020 Event.
Her ability to engage the room and deliver concise, meaningful and relevant content
made her a valuable addition to our event, However it was her commitment to sharing
authentically and honestly and spending time with the women in the room before and
after her Q&A interview that made her an absolute highlight of the evening.
I cannot thank Tamara enough for her passion, wealth of knowledge and the way she
inspired my guests.”
