Tim’s keynote address is perfect for leaders at all levels as he brings his brand of Texas-tough and humorous messaging of self-awareness and emotional intelligence to your audience."
Event Planner Extraordinaire
"I’m fortunate to have had the opportunity to see Tim in action as a speaker in many forums both large and small – Tim has the uncanny ability to connect with his audience regardless of audience size. From the 10,000 person arena to a small, intimate gathering in a training room, Tim is incredibly relatable . . . he ensures that his content is relevant and meaningful by tapping into the real challenges we all face but are often untold. He leaves audience members feeling like he’s speaking directly to them.
With both humor and seriousness, Tim brings messages to life through stories and real examples. If I’m looking for a proven speaker, who is credible, real, and will bring the concepts to life in a authentic way, Tim Gardner is the first person I would call."
President, Talent Strategist
HRD Advisory Group
"Tim has led seminars for several of my teams in different contexts. Tim is consistently one of our highest-rated speakers and his message sticks. His teaching is engaging and interactive, mixes humor with genuine life skills, and helps his learners examine themselves and correct self- and relationship-defeating behaviors.
He has helped my teams become more engaged and inclusive, and increased our resilience and emotional intelligence so we could overcome disagreements, challenges, and obstacles without compromising team unity. He has delivered his seminar in small group retreats, large group live sessions, and even over multi-point virtual collaboration tools, all with equal effect. He is a great virtual speaker! I highly recommend you let him tailor a seminar for you and your team."
VP - Sales, Engineering & Opps
"Tim was outstanding on so many levels. His combination of effective presentation skills and in-depth knowledge of our topic seemed to draw people towards him throughout the conference. His use of multimedia coupled with a unique ability to personalize the needs of the audience translated into a powerful message that touched people at their core.
Tim was funny, outrageous and powerful and yet the truth he spoke seemed like it came from your brother or a next-door neighbor. He disarms and arms you all at the same time. He is one of the best speakers I’ve heard; he is wonderfully effective, and we wouldn’t hesitate to have Tim return for another engagement."
