Speech Topics


Leadership: The Tao of Humor (workshop / breakout session)

Almost everyone will agree that humor can have a positive impact at work. As a strategic skill, it can act as a positive factor in communication, morale, and stress reduction. However, if misused, it can have an equally negative effect.

Explore how to steer clear of the negative or controversial humor that may become a source of problems and complaints by concentrating on humor that enhances (and never diminishes) work place culture to improve morale and customer service.

Change the Game (workshop / breakout session)

Life is a game. Business is a game. Literally, everything is a game with winners, losers, spectators. Can just one person actually change the game? Without a doubt, the answer is yes. The secret lies in applying easy-to-understand and hard-to-forget concepts that you can use immediately (or choose to disregard and continue to coast).

Developing a Comic Vision® (keynote)

Discover how you can be more resilient and resourceful in this laughter filled session. See the ‘real’ reality and share the fun of it with laughter and humor through the lens of your Comic Vision®! Tim’s rejuvenating and immediately applicable message teaches audiences how to increase morale while enhancing productivity and everyday enthusiasm in three short, and easy to adopt, steps. You won’t forget his terrific uniquely funny stories (and of course, extraordinary visual props). (Ideal for keynote/lunch/dinner/awards).
