Each week, our colleague Maria Franzoni invites one of our keynote speakers to discuss their life, work, current projects and passions. We hope that hearing more about them will allow you to get a better understanding of who they are.
My guest this week is a pioneer in humour-based training. He has spoken at over 2500 main stage events from Texas to Tasmania. He is also the author of 4 books and markets his own line of stress buster products worldwide. He is a tears-in-your-eyes, I can’t breathe speaker. He teaches people to be more resilient and resourceful and coaches businesses on how to enhance productivity and employee enthusiasm through the use of humour.
Please welcome Tim Gard
