The rise and sole of Strategic Stiletto, Tish Vallés is President and founder

Tish Valles

A global strategic planner, social entrepreneur and storyteller, I am driven to better connect brands and businesses to the cultural narrative. I wrote the strategy that launched one of the first culturally connected online campaigns for Dove’s Campaign for Real Beauty in Southeast Asia. In 2006, I wrote the brand vision for and co-founded the Women’s Worldwide Web, a social enterprise that aims to shift the stories of the world’s women and girls by empowering them with economic freedom, education and community.

As a strategist and innovator, I bring a breadth of corporate and entrepreneurial expertise. In my corporate life, I spent 15 years as Asia Pacific Regional Planning Director on Unilever Brands (Dove, Pond’s and Comfort) and Global Planning Director on Pfizer at Ogilvy, and North America Planning Director on Tide for Saatchi NY.  As an entrepreneur, I have been an independent consultant for the past seven years, with clients including multinational agencies, medium sized digital agencies and boutique agencies. For four years, I ran the New York hub and for Big Green Door, working on global brand innovation projects.
In my pursuit to participate in and drive the culture narrative within my immediate community, I volunteer as an organizer and Programming Director at TEDxNewYorkSalon–the most active and longest running TEDx program in New York.
American born of Spanish-Filipino origin, I have lived and worked in the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe & the UK, and the UAE. Multi-ethnic, multicultural and multilingual. I am currently based in Brooklyn, NY.
