“Tim Gard is the ultimate professional. I’ve heard Tim speak at national conventions several times over the years and have always been impressed. I have been delighted to include him as a mainstage presenter at my annual conference on multiple occasions. I know that Tim will show up fully, deliver exactly as we had discussed, maintain professionalism throughout, and always brings educational content to his presentations along with the humor. To say that working with Tim is a slam dunk is no exaggeration. He’s got your back, he flexes where needed, and he will always deliver at the best of his abilities. The best part? Your attendees will be surprised and delighted. You’ll hear them talking about his presentation for weeks and months afterward. Yippee!”

We have the highest regard for Tim and appreciated the time and attention to detail given to our events.

“You knocked it out of the park, kid!”
(After my performance on the main stage at the National Speakers Association annual meeting in 2006 Mr. Ziglar put his arm around my shoulders and told me, “You knocked it out of the park, kid”. One of the most cherished moments of my speaking life.)
Yes, Tim Gard is a funny person. But more importantly, he can teach YOU to get more laughs with your phrasing, delivery, and story mining. He’s helped me a lot. Highly recommended!
