Speaker Bio

Like you, author and influential communication expert, Tim David is frustrated by what is happening to the quality of human connection in our modern world.

Can more connection really increase the bottom line and improve the quality of our lives at the same time? Will better human connection really make us better leaders, better salespeople, and better co-workers?

With over ten years of speaking, mentoring, writing, and most importantly real-world, in-the-trenches business experience, Tim can unequivocally answer, “YES!”

Strong human connection makes you more memorable, likable, and influential, which is something everyone wants, but few people realize is a learned skill and not an innate gift. In short, anyone can discover simple ways to improve the quality and power of human connection in their life.

Nothing could be simpler or more practical than the ideas in his two popular books, Magic Words – The Science and Secrets Behind Seven Words that Motivate, Engage, and Influence (Penguin Random House) and FLIP - The Four Levels of Influencing People.

Tim’s science-based approach is radically different from standard leadership, sales, or communication training as it was honed during his years as a professional and international award-winning “brain science magician” and perfected while working with top companies and organizations from almost every US state and around the world.

Tim's work has been profiled in thousands of media outlets including Forbes, New York Times, Inc. Magazine, Chicago Tribune, the Today Show, Investor's Business Daily, Harvard Business Review, New York Magazine, World Magazine, Huffington Post, and he is a columnist for PsychologyToday.com.

Description and Objectives:

It’s not WHAT you know…

“Shockingly, only 15% of your financial success is due to technical knowledge.” – Carnegie Institute ofTechnology

Not so fast. It isn’t WHO you know either…

Your organization has the raw talent. Look around your org chart. The boxes aren’t where the really big problems are. The biggest problems are found at the lines in between. At their roots, the biggest problems are caused by a lack of human connection.

Technology was supposed to improve the QUALITY of our human connection. Instead, we’ve become lost in a sea of softly-glowing screens and endless email, losing touch with each other and suffering consequences that no one could have predicted.

The Magic of Human Connection – Your Advantage in a Digital World presentation uncovers the keys to creating more human connection at work and in life in a world that has forgotten how. After experiencing engaging stories and humor, provocative science, Tim’s incredible “brain science magic,” and yes, his show-stopping “backwards poem”, attendees will leave feeling refreshed and with a renewed sense of what is really important – bringing that sense of purpose and meaning into the workplace with astonishing bottom-line results.

After this program, attendees will be able to…

  • Understand and apply the five keys of human connection
  • Create more rapport and influence in all interpersonal interactions
  • Eliminate the mindset that destroys communication before it even begins
  • Appreciate the importance of human connection in a business setting and feel motivated to improve connection skills
  • Create and contribute to a work culture focused on human connection

Description and Objectives:

Funny, engaging, and sharply insightful, TRUE Leadership offers proven answers to some of the most difficult challenges faced while leading others.

If you had no ability to punish or reward, could you still motivate every member of your team? If you aren’t constantly “on them,” does the work still get done? Does it get done right? Do you ever feel like a babysitter instead of a boss?

After this program, attendees will be able to:

  • Use the five laws of delegation to ensure work gets done, and gets done right
  • Describe the two simple (but contradictory) rules of leadership and how high levels of human connection will bridge the gap
  • Deliver negative feedback in a way that creates movement instead of mutiny
  • Create real motivation within their teams without resorting to bribes, threats, or even incentives
  • Implement an eye-opening method for making smart decisions that cuts meeting times by 75%, destroys groupthink, and increases creative output by 493%
  • Artfully deal with the frequent “pop-ins” that threaten productivity while still maintaining an open door policy
  • Implement these leadership and influence strategies starting tomorrow, whether they have an official title or not
