Tim Gard - Keynote Speaker

Tim Gard, CSP, CPAE, is a tears-in-your-eyes-laugh-out-loud speaker who teaches people to be more resilient and resourceful, and coaches businesses on how to enhance productivity and employee enthusiasm. 

Talented, innovative, and memorable, Tim provides amazing take-home value delivered with his one-of-a-kind presentation style.

As a keynote speaker, he ensures every event starts with a bang and/or concludes with everyone sharing a renewed, positive sense of purpose. Tim is also available as an outstanding emcee facilitating the day’s activities or hosting an evening awards banquet. 

Tim has achieved the highest honors and recognition in his industry, including:

  • CPAE (Council of Peers Award for Excellence): Speaker Hall of Fame Member—an elite recognition shared by fewer than 150 speakers worldwide
  • CSP (Certified Speaking Professional): The highest earned designation of the National Speakers Association.
  • Selected by Meeting Planners Magazine as one of the “Best speakers ever seen or heard on the main stage.” 

Tim’s down-to-earth style and real-life humor leaves a lasting impression that audiences will benefit from for years to come. His skillful use of ordinary items in extraordinary ways and extraordinary items in everyday ways make him one of the most popular main stage speakers on the platform today.

Becoming more resilient is not about telling jokes or laughing at everything. Instead of making light of serious issues, Tim shines a light on unseen possibilities for solutions to difficult situations. He demonstrates how to be professional, yet light-hearted throughout all his programs.

Without a doubt, Tim’s keynotes consistently deliver on these two promises: 

  1. A hilarious shared experience, and 
  2. Take-home value that improves performance and workplace attitude. 

As a business speaker, Tim shows leaders how to enhance productivity and employee enthusiasm using his humor stress diffusion tactics in everyday situations. He facilitates an unforgettable experience that improves the quality of interactions. At the same time, he’s instilling an enthusiasm for non-malicious mischief that no one should live without! 

For two decades, Tim Gard has provided hilariously entertaining, fast-paced, and informative programs from Texas to Tasmania. His universal message translates to a diverse range of audiences of every size. 

An internationally recognized authority on stress reduction and conflict resolution, Tim’s easy-to-implement techniques provide audiences with ways to diffuse, deal with, and even avoid intensely stressful encounters. When relating to business leaders, Tim “walks his talk” as a successful business owner himself for more than 20 years.  Before starting his business, he worked in the Sales Industry, as well as State and Federal Government in Human Services, as a fraud investigator and is a navy veteran.

Author of Just Plane Funny and My Policy Manual and co-author of Motivational Leaders and Humor Me, Tim also offers his own line of “stress buster” tools that are marketed worldwide.

Developing a Comic Vision® (keynote) 

Discover how you can be more resilient and resourceful in this laughter filled session.  See the ‘real’ reality and share the fun of it with laughter and humor through the lens of your Comic Vision®! Tim’s rejuvenating and immediately applicable message teaches audiences how to increase morale while enhancing productivity and everyday enthusiasm in three short, and easy to adopt, steps. You won’t forget his terrific uniquely funny stories (and of course, extraordinary visual props). (Ideal for keynote/lunch/dinner/awards).

Change the Game (workshop / breakout session)

Life is a game. Business is a game. Literally, everything is a game with winners, losers, spectators.  Can just one person actually change the game? Without a doubt, the answer is yes. The secret lies in applying easy-to-understand and hard-to-forget concepts that you can use immediately (or choose to disregard and continue to coast). 

Leadership: The Tao of Humor (workshop / breakout session)

Almost everyone will agree that humor can have a positive impact at work.  As a strategic skill, it can act as a positive factor in communication, morale, and stress reduction. However, if misused, it can have an equally negative effect.

Explore how to steer clear of the negative or controversial humor that may become a source of problems and complaints by concentrating on humor that enhances (and never diminishes) work place culture to improve morale and customer service.
