Change the Game

Life is a game; business is a game; travel is a game. Well, literally everything is a game that usually involves winners, losers, and spectators. This ‘Change the Game’ keynote helps you discover how to change any game to your advantage when encountering situational ...

Life is a game; business is a game; travel is a game. Well, literally everything is a game that usually involves winners, losers, and spectators. This ‘Change the Game’ keynote helps you discover how to change any game to your advantage when encountering situational stressors, toxic people, and various challenges inherent to life.

The pressure to accomplish more with less, meet tight deliverable expectations, and respond with professional promptness can create stress, cause team dysfunction, and even decrease morale. The attitude that “everything seems so serious, heavy, and intense” is more than unproductive; it’s a truly unhealthy way to work and live!

Participants learn how one person can “change the game” for all players by applying easy-to-understand and hard-to-forget concepts—ones that champions have been using for centuries in sports, business, and life in general. Providing a shift in perspective and approach can influence the playing experience for everyone in a multitude of tangible and valuable ways. Learn how to reduce stress in this hilarious keynote! Using the game of marbles as a metaphor, Tim proves that overly complicated tasks can become surprisingly uncomplicated—FAST!

About Keynote Speaker Tim Gard

About Speaker Tim Gard…

The pressures, stress, and expectations we face day in and day out can take a toll on our resilience and drain our sense of resourcefulness.  For the last 20+ years Tim has enjoyed a thriving career despite endless circumstances which are always completely beyond his control, and he’s here to show you how to do the same!

In business or government, we are often TOLD what we must do, but being told – and being taught – are two different things. In Tim’s keynote speeches, motivational workshops, and professional speaker coaching sessions, you will discover shortcuts to consciously changing your perception, acting instead of re-acting, and ultimately controlling your experiences.

As an elite member of the National Speakers Association Hall of Fame, Tim is one of the top motivational speakers and presenters who has addressed audiences of every size around the world.  He is pleased to offer his clients a universally understood and applicable message to combat motivational fatigue. “Humor as a skill” is not about telling funny jokes or unleashing your inner “funny guy.” It is the simple act of combining ideas not normally associated with each other, in the right place, at the right time.
