workshops

Tim Gard is a true veteran of the war against stress and work fatigue! Not only does he keep the motivational workshops and training sessions fun and engaging for every type and size of audience, but he also takes care to ensure he directly addresses any particular issues that are present for your group and inspires personal accountability within individuals.


His unique teaching style and insights on the power of stress reduction and team building through humor have earned him the elite status of enrollment in the National Speakers Association’s Speaker Hall of Fame. Tim’s training workshops are customized for each group, and can be as short as a half day or as long as 2 days.

Speaking Coach

As a speaking coach, my philosophy is that the best way to foster mutual respect, trust, empathy, and a shared sense of connection between a speaker and their audience is to use clean and universally appreciated humor.

To some, sharing and inspiring with a “sense of humor” comes as naturally as the sense of smell, while others may struggle to not only “find the funny” but also find it challenging to deliver the message. Hiring a speaking coach is a critical investment in yourself as well as your career, regardless of your current skill level.

What impressed us most was your ability to tailor your program in such an exact and appropriate manner. You exposed subject matter that was clear, concise, and pertinent to our daily routine, and we certainly enjoyed learning how to look at difficult situations with a "Comic Vision."
