'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 'The Joy of Sceptics', 'Contageous commitment' and 'Ethics is not a river in Egypt'. A recent audience member referred to '...pills of concreteness and wisdom". I am humbled.
Below is a link to a podcast on 'Innovation', broadcast as part of the AT Kearney 'Wave of the Future' leadership series. Tim talks about how to creat an organisational climate that supports innovation. (20 mins)
“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, 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 07932 733903
