Laughter Becomes You

Stress is all around us 24/7. If you are stuck in a funk, lacking short term or long term motivation this event will help you discover how to refresh and renew and consistently be able to shake off every day stress.

You need all the tools available to get the edge in today’s travel market.  One of the most overlooked skills is the use of humor as a business skill.  Anyone can harness the power of humor in sales and marketing, but like anything important it is a skill to be learned and practiced and not a button you push on demand.  We all laugh in the same language.  Laughter unites us, creates common bonds, shortens rapport timeframes and helps maintain long term business relationships. 

We can't change all the things that happen to us or around us every day, but we can change our perception of the things that typically feel stressful.  Tim demonstrates and teaches how to shift your perspective from the negative to a more empowering vision of what is…and what is not... possible.  By shifting your perspective, you will be able to change your own experience, as well as the experience you create for others in a real, tangible and valuable way.  Laugh and learn how “Fun With Tim” customer connection principles empower almost anyone to better connect with their customers one person, one moment at a time.

Tim Gard, CSP, CPAE is a Hall of Fame speaker who has performed at over 2000 events around the globe.   He is also a tears-in-your-eyes-laugh-out-loud speaker who teaches people to be more resilient and resourceful and coaches businesses on how to enhance productivity and employee enthusiasm.  Talented, innovative and memorable, Tim provides amazing take-home value delivered with his one-of-a-kind presentation style.  Becoming more resilient is not about telling jokes or laughing at everything. Instead of making light of serious issues, Tim shines a light on unseen possibilities for solutions to difficult situations. He demonstrates how to be professional, yet light-hearted throughout all his programs.

Tim is an internationally recognized authority on stress reduction and conflict resolution, and his easy-to-implement techniques provide ways to diffuse, deal with, and even avoid intensely stressful encounters.  Tim "walks his talk" as a successful business owner himself for more than 20 years. Before starting his business, he worked in the Sales Industry, as well as State and Federal Government in Human Services, as a fraud investigator and is a navy veteran. Author of Just Plane Funny and My Policy Manual and co-author of Motivational Leaders and Humor Me, Tim also offers his own line of "stress buster" tools that are marketed worldwide.  You can see more of Tim at www.timgard.com.
