1. Leading when times are tough – the human touch!

Leading people is a tough job at the best of times but what do you do when everything goes wrong, all at the same time?
Tim draws on his experiences in the NSW Police Force, The State Emergency Service, the corporate sector and his personal life to share key learnings around leading when times are tough. One’s responsibilities as a leader exist regardless of what is happening around you. From the death of a colleague to a major natural disaster, from large scale organisational change to a serious family illness Tim has experienced the lot, and led teams to success throughout.

Tim focuses on planning, resilience and values as he takes his audience through his journey of discovery. people are the key to every leaders success or failure and this is especially true when things are tough, during times of change or when a crisis hits.

2. Reinvent yourself – you can be whoever and whatever you want.

Many people live lives of quiet desperation. Working jobs they loath, socialising with people they don’t really like. Being unhappy but not really knowing why. Most of these people die this way!

Some, however, change the lives that they lead. They get up every morning and they punch the air in anticipation at what life will bring. They are self aware and make decisions every day that are consistent with the lives that they want to lead and sort of person that they want to be.

Drawing on his remarkable life experiences Tim is able to demonstrate the impossible coming true. Career changes, critical inflection moments, challenges to values and personal crisis events all provide us with opportunities to be who we want to be, rather than what we have allowed ourselves to become.

With lots of energy and audience involvement Tim provides a motivating Keynote speech or a longer development workshop. Allow Tim to help your team or audience be the best that they can be and be truly happy.

3. Making those difficult decisions

Decisions are a part of life and critical to successful professional and personal lives and yet we regularly make the wrong one! How do we help ourselves with difficult decisions? How do we create a personal framework that makes these difficult decisions easier?

Tim uses his personal experiences and some simple frameworks to reset the agenda when it comes to making difficult decisions. Removing the noise and allowing our values to drive our decision making processes creates a new lens on almost every aspect of life.
With lots of energy and and an engaging style Tim can make your people think, make them view decision making in a different way and entertain all at the same time. This session can run from 30 minutes over breakfast or lunch to an hour as a keynote presentation.
Other topics include:

  1. Inflection points – how to make the rear view mirror redundant
  2. The 7 things great sales people don’t do!
  3. You’re under arrest – selling the dream in the Police Force
  4. Culture wars – a new perspective on leading a value driven life
  5. Through the looking glass – why should the glass be half full?

“Tim’s presentation really hit the mark with our delegates and as the breakfast presenter for our conference, it was an inspirational start to the next two days. Tim was well researched, prepared and professional. I would certainly recommend him for any corporate speaking engagement.” 2015 – Parking Australia

 

“Tim Kitching was inspirational, humble and able to connect his experiences with our industry sector. Thanks Tim for starting our conference with some thought provoking and meaningful messages” 2015 – Banking and Finance Conference

 

Tim presented to a group of nursing staff on the subject of team leadership. At first the staff were somewhat sceptical of an ex-banker talking to nurses on management but Tim had a way of getting his points across in a manner that they could readily relate to. We ask for feedback from staff on such presentations and many left vey positive feedback on Tim’s presentation. All in all I would recommend Tim as a professional speaker and trainer. ” North Shore Private Hospital
