Laughter Becomes You

If employee motivation and happiness is important to you then it’s time to meet Tim Gard. Tim’s Laughter Becomes You keynote is as funny as it is inspiring and content rich. Audiences laugh from start to finish and discover how simple it is to change their perception to create their own reality and avoid or defuse potential stressors.

He shows audiences how to "refresh and renew" themselves simply by using and sharing his techniques. His terrifically funny, unique stories (and of course, extraordinary visual props) make this keynote address a hilarious way to start or close your meeting.

Tim’s daily dedication to his craft not just produces an amazing amount of topical humor, but it challenges him to consistently refine his programs and inspire creativity. Naturally Tim’s ability to improvise is top level as he’s demonstrated for more than 20 years. Having a Comic Vision® is the ability to harness humor and use it as a skill to see the stressors all around us in a different manner whenever possible. It is often choosing to act - and not react - to the situational stress we encounter every day at work, and at home. Stress exists all around us. If you understand what stress is and know what causes you stress, then you can work to lessen the situational stress factors in your life. Identify the things that cause you stress, approaching and working on them one at a time. Then, find the funny…..and repeat.

Tim doesn't make light of your serious situations, but rather, shines a light on them to reveal previously unseen possibilities. The pressure to accomplish more with less, meet tight deliverable deadline expectations and respond with professional promptness can create stress, team dysfunction and decreased morale. The philosophy of "everything seems so serious, heavy and intense" is an unproductive one, and a truly unhealthy way to work and live. When stress and dysfunction need reduction, it's time to discover how Laughter Becomes You. This is Tim's most popular program and this 45 min to 3 hour Keynote speech is as funny as it is inspiring and practical. As Tim says, “Laughter Becomes You”.
