Motivational Speaking

Working with some forty businesses in any one year, Tim’s speaking and writing is based on the Growth Cycle. He has many dozens of stories from real businesses, suitably disguised, to illustrate the key practical points that delegates can take away and apply as soon as they get back to their businesses.




Direction, Trust and Performance, in this sequence, are eternal truths for both business and personal relationships. It is only time and circumstance that changes:

The Bull’s Eye process is the most powerful way to clarify direction. Tim emphasises the need for openness and honesty from all parties. This material always works best where people are genuinely interested in discussing anything and everything that is relevant to the future of the business. The clearer you are about where you would like to be the more likely you are to get there.

In a knowledge world, the most successful organisations over time place a high priority on the way they develop trust between people. Tim shares how to get CLOSER to our colleagues, CLOSER to our staff and stakeholders and ultimately, CLOSER to our customers. The externally facilitated 360 degree appraisal of the CEO is the single most powerful way to start this process.

We enhance performance by finding out what makes people individually and collectively excellent. The synergy between professional competences and human characteristics is what people bring to the party when they come to work each day. When we know what this is, we are then in a strong position to identify development needs, allocate responsibility and resource to the eight crucial areas of the business.
