A good speaker entertains you but a great speaker inspires and challenges your thinking. They push you to see things through a different lens and forces individuals and teams to reflect on their own situation and actions.

- Understand what really counts in their roles as formal and informal leaders
- Discard the fads and fashions of modern ‘Leadership Training’ and getting back to basics

“Tim presented to a group of nursing staff on the subject of team leadership. At first the staff were somewhat sceptical of someone from outside of the medical sector talking to nurses on management and leadership but Tim had a way of getting his points across in a manner that they could readily relate to. We ask for feedback from staff on such presentations and many left vey positive feedback on Tim’s presentation. All in all I would recommend Tim as a professional and motivating speaker. ”
