From the classroom to the boardroom, Tim creates an interactive, inclusive experience that is unique to each audience. His keynotes and workshops are humorous and energizing—connecting organizations one individual at a time. Using his rare ability to relate to large groups of people on a personal level Tim combines powerful stories with current research to deliver a funny and profound message. The ultimate goal of his presentations is to lead people to personal insights that help them live happier, healthier and more productive lives.
