In the mid 1990s he joined Canada’s largest private communications firm at the time, ICE, as a Senior Account Director, and worked with many of Canada’s biggest and best corporations. He left to pursue his passion for training, becoming a senior consultant and trainer with Horn and Associates where he designed and delivered sales and sales management training programs. In 1999, his vision was to create the “defacto sales learning leader in Canada.” He started Fusion Learning, which became the fastest growing sales effectiveness firm in the country, providing programs for hundreds of corporate clients including Dynamic Funds, Rogers, BDC, Molson Coors, and TD Bank. Tim sold his shares in Fusion in 2010, but continues to work with them.

Creativity is our underleveraged navigator – to help us move through tough problems.

Mindfulness matters. It has never been more important in our uncertain world.
The problem is, we are too mind-full! Busyness has become a disease.
What about the heart?
We need to take much better care of ourselves, our loved ones and our teammates to thrive vs just survive.
In today’s uncertain, disrupted, complex and rapidly changing global business environment, we need to be more courageous to connect, collaborate and pay attention to well-being. We have an opportunity to lead with more “heartfulness.” Heartfulness is a term coined by Tim about tapping into and trusting our innate heart-based intelligence and capabilities.

Most of us are familiar with the famous Peter Drucker saying, “Culture will eat Strategy for breakfast.” This is truer than ever. But leading complex change is tough!
One of the key problems is, culture is too often top-down vs inclusive.
If we want to instill high levels of commitment, empowerment, accountability with culture transformations, we need to co-create vs dictate.
In this experiential and practical keynote, Tim provides useful frameworks, inspiring stories and exercises to share and unpack critical success factors for complex culture change. Transformational change at its core is identity work and an inside-out discovery process that requires, vision, heart and focused commitment. It’s not for the faint of heart and just doesn’t work with old school, didactic leadership.

Business stories are one of a leader’s most powerful tools. Yet very few teams tap into the power of stories.
Too often communication is data-driven, connecting only with the head. Progressive leaders lead with vision & heart and harness the power of storytelling to engage and inspire their people.
