The Power and Implementation of Your Brand with B.I.G. Founder and CEO, Tara Gilvar and B.I.G.'s Lead Designer, Svenja Lyon.


Founder and CEO

She’s a master connector. She’s been called a visionary. She has dedicated more than a decade helping women live their best lives. She believes that every woman has gifts and talents that deserve to be shared with the world. And she professes that when women work together to support and empower each other, we make the world a better place.

Tara spent the early part of her career, after graduating from Boston College as a political science major, working in Boston politics and building national consumer brands at a national advertising agency. Whether it was marketing luxury leather products for The Timberland Company, doing the ball drop on New Year’s Eve with Sylvania Lighting or working to help launch Eddie Bauer’s Lewis & Clark collection, Tara worked tirelessly to help build positive brand personalities for all her clients.


Like millions of women, Tara left the workforce to raise her children. While motherhood is a special gift, it can also be lonely, all-consuming and a time in life where you can easily lose your personal passion and your mojo. After seeing a bumper sticker on a teacher’s car that read “Remember Who You Wanted to Be,” her life changed. She knew she had to act.


So, she sent a simple email to the women of her community -- smart women like her who still had dreams for their lives -- with a message titled “We’re Still Smart.” That simple act was the catalyst for the start of B.I.G. More than 40 women came to Tara’s living room to share their hopes and dreams. It was abundantly clear these talented yet unfulfilled women were seeking a tribe of like-minded, intellectually stimulating women. Tara now knew what she had to do, and so B.I.G. was born.


To date, B.I.G. has attracted thousands of members throughout the country and has established long-standing relationships with women entrepreneurs in Spain and throughout Europe.



An accomplished speaker, Tara enjoys bringing her passionate empowerment message to live audiences and on popular women’s podcasts and webinars. She has been a featured presenter for Chambers of Commerce, The Boston College Council for Women, New Jersey’s Conference for Women and numerous other venues.


Lead Designer

A gifted creative. A devoted team player. She always raises the bar. She’s as patient as a saint. She always brings her “best game.”


Svenja transforms all the visual elements of B.I.G. into a pleasurable feast for the eyes.


Svenja translates B.I.G. HQ’s endless ideas, event concepts, product offerings, and initiatives into crystal clear visual presentations. Her beautiful, professional designs elevate B.I.G.’s brand image to amazing heights. She does this almost magically as if she can see the vision in our minds and then she enhances it to a work of art -- and always with a smile.


Her authentic passion for showcasing women entrepreneurs and elevating them to be their best can be found in the production of Svenja’s brainchild, The Stories of Women who Believe. Inspire. Grow. This extraordinary book featuring the stories and visual images of more than 30 passionate B.I.G. women entrepreneurs represents Svenja’s amazing design talents and her commitment to empowering women.
