'You can't hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk...'


Or how about,  'The early bird gets the worm...but the second mouse gets the cheese'?  


Management writers (along with management 'gurus' and speakers) have a reputation for making the trivial seem important.  And for making common sense impenetrably difficult to understand or apply.  Well, these two quotes should leave you in no doubt that I favour the deeply moving and the profound.  To paraphrase Margaret Mead, 'Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed after dinner speakers can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has'



Speakers come in all shapes and sizes, and so do I.   I even have my own pointer.  My talks are always prepared using fresh, local ideas...and are never recycled.  


Recent gigs include: 'Engage the brain...Engage the person'; 'The Joy of Sceptics'; 'Generating innovation in a matrix'; 'Contageous commitment' and 'Using all three of our brains'. 


A recent audience member referred to '...pills of concreteness and wisdom".  I am humbled.



A sample or two:


Below is a link to a podcast on 'Innovation', broadcast as part of the AT Kearney 'Wave of the Future' leadership seriesb. I talk about how to create an organisational climate that supports innovation. (20 mins) 




And a keynote address on leadership, presented to a conference in London:


What followers need from leaders








“Tim is an inspirational speaker and facilitator of leadership and management learning. He is incredibly knowledgeable and has a near empathic understanding of his audiences"




"Your session last Friday certainly set the highest possible standards. The group universally enjoyed the day better than any I can remember"




"I just wanted you to know that I have spoken to all the attendees individually and, without exception, they found your event highly relevant and enjoyable. Thank you for proividing such a bespoke and thoughtful session"




In addition to engagements in the UK, I have worked with audiences in The US, Malaysia, Singapore, Peru, Canada, Australia, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, The Czech Republic, Kosovo, Moldova, France, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Hong Kong, Spain, Italy and Germany.



Sometimes your events need a boost...a shot in the arm...a slap around the face.  Sometimes you simply have 45 minutes to fill after a long and bloating lunch.  Well, give me a call.  +44 (0)7932 733903
