In 2018, She obtained a certificate of achievement from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). She collaborated with renowned brands and partners such as the London School of Economics, Oxfam, Tourism Montreal, and the United Nations.

Early in her career, Tamy Emma Pepin became expertly versed in media production and audio-visual storytelling. She was the Senior Editor at AOL and launched the Huffington Post brand in Québec. Her process-driven approach was cemented during her time as a field producer for Anthony Bourdain’s The Layover (The Travel Channel) and Parts Unknown (CNN), while her curiosity and organization skills were pulled upon as host of two travel TV shows TamyUSA and Tamy@UK.

Narrative design and her ability to authentically connect with others landed her a Gemini Award for Best Television Host in a Service and Cultural Series, and a NUMIX Prize for Best Convergent Production. Finding our common human thread has remained a core principle of partnership building over the years.

These roles were the catalyst for UPPL, where production converges with marketing and design. She has created and executed powerful adaptive strategies for GOODEE and led productions for The London School of Economics, Netflix, and Quartz Co. Clients are drawn to her strategic, organizational, and creative abilities, as well as her perspective of interconnected landscapes.

Ms. Pepin’s contribution to McGill’s conference (Lifting Off and Flying High: Talent and Success in Canada) was one of the genuine high points of the event. She drew both on her own background, in launching projects of various kinds, and on her keen understanding of the place of media and communications in the process of “lift-off”. In a conference that hosted a great many prominent entrepreneurs and media personalities, her presentation was seen by many as the most emerging and useful.

From the award-winning show Tamy@UK and TamyUSA, to serving as a field producer on Anthony Bourdain’s The Layover and Parts Unknown, she has solidified her space not only in the (at times) homogeneous Québécois media scene, but as a certifiable media powerhouse on an international level: a feat that many have tried, but few have achieved.
