Tim Gard Speaking Topics

CHANGE THE GAME!

Off the Wall is a game. Life is a game; business is a game; literally everything is a game that contains winners, losers and spectators. Winners excel by intention and determination while others suffer from making the choice to simply coast or dwell in a defeatist attitude.

Tim uses a bag of marbles to show how one person can “change the game” for everyone by applying easy-to-understand and hard-to-forget concepts—ones that champions have been using for centuries in sports, business, and life in general. Everyone gets their own bag of marbles to keep to continue changing the game or if you wish to play Off the Wall.

STICKY SAFETY

Hazardous habits invariably form when repeating the same safety policy over and over again. The audience goes right back to doing what they’ve always done because it didn’t stick. Just like earworm songs and random information from your school years, safety information can be “sticky” and stay in your team’s brain well beyond the presentation.

Tim has worked in some very dangerous jobs; experienced workplace injuries and his insights are based on real life situations anyone can identify with and learn from. He uses that experience to show you how your safety messaging can make a change in your organization and stick.

LEADERSHIP: THE TAO OF HUMOR

Unhealthy humor is toxic. Although 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 unhealthy or misused, it can have an equally negative effect.

Using “good, clean humor”, Tim shows you how to use that humor to enhance (and never diminish) workplace culture while improving morale and ultimately customer service. Tim is more than a humorist and motivational speaker, but a stress reduction speaker sure to send spirits soaring in the office.

LAUGHTER BECOMES YOU

Morale can make or break an organization. Organizations are struggling with employee satisfaction and retention which are critical for the success of the company AND for the employee. Although Ice Cream Friday’s are yummy, they’re not enough.

Tim’s rejuvenating message helps increase employee morale while enhancing productivity and everyday enthusiasm in three easy-to-adopt steps in his proven Comic Vision® techniques. His terrifically funny, unique stories (and of course, extraordinary visual props) make this keynote address a hilarious way to start or close your meeting.
