Could your organization use a boost in morale?

If your workforce is stressed, divided, and unmotivated, you’re not alone, but you are in the right place. Today employees need help navigating:

  • How to overcome interpersonal conflict.
  • Being overwhelmed at work.
  • Setbacks and adversity.

Funny Keynote Speaker

Tim Gard is a Hall of Fame speaker who transforms his audiences through humor for happier workplaces, renewed motivation, and greater profits. Tim is one of the funniest speakers on the planet, but he is not a comedian. He doesn’t make light of serious situations, instead, he shines a light on unseen possibilities.

If we look, we can find humor everywhere, especially when things get tough. Tim shows us how we can shift our perspective and change how we respond to these stressful circumstances. He calls this approach Comic Vision which helps audiences navigate how to turn negatives into positives through humor.

Speaking Coach & Rubber Chicken Owner

Tim’s speaking skills have earned him the elite status of enrollment in the National Speakers Association’s Speaker Hall of Fame. He not only knows how to give world-class presentations but can also guide you on the business of speaking.

His 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. This approach has been proven repeatedly over his 25+ year career.

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."

An influential and unique message on understanding humor as a stress-reduction tool - my team and I are still talking about how much we laughed!

Tim had resoundingly positive feedback, which was no surprise to us! I was thrilled with his MC skills and thought that his keynote was both relevant and hilarious, the perfect mix to start the day and get everyone in the mood to absorb the messages from all of the speakers.
