“We hired Tim to be our first-ever North American signature event MC and I have to say we were all pleased with the result. Tim was very easy to work with as well as flexible. He was very engaged from the intro call until d-day, including preparation work and rehearsal. On d-day, Tim was able to warm up the audience, keep the energy up all day long, and tailored his role to our brand. On top of everything, Tim was able to party as one of ours and make our event one of a kind all attendees will remember for a long time.”

What made Tim’s sessions GREAT beyond the information shared, was his energy, charisma, and ability to connect with the audience, effortlessly. Tim has a passion for speaking and for people and that makes all the difference! He has an in-depth understanding of the material he presents, sharing short, relatable stories from his personal life to help drive home the message. It was a breeze working with Tim to coordinate the message that he would be delivering to our members, we highly recommend him for your next event!”

Besides the great content he provided, his speaking style was highly engaging and left attendees raving about the session. We'd welcome him back to Marketing Edge anytime!”
