I have just recently attended a branding workshop for the Beechworth Bakery with Tim Reid, and found it terrific. Tim had really done his homework on our business before running the workshop. Tim was great to work with, the program was simple and he kept the whole group focused, which enabled us to really work together and identify what our true guiding principles are for our brand. Everyone who attended the workshop really enjoyed it and I believe it was money well spent. Tim really is an ideas man! Branding is easy when you have the right person guiding you.

Tom O’Toole, Founder, Beechworth Bakery

Tim Reid’s presentation on social media to our guests was outstanding. The feedback we received was universally positive. Not only is he engaging and energetic with an impressive and broad knowledge-base, he understands that for most people, the value in attending seminars is to come away with something practical. That was our brief and Tim nailed it. We’ve already had people saying they would come to more seminars we host because of the quality of what Tim delivered for us.

I’ve known the lovely Tim Reid for a few years, but only met in person recently. Tim was the opening keynote speaker at our 2010 Flying Solo LIVE! conference and he was truly awesome. I sat waiting for him to slow down, but he never did. We received 100 feedback forms following his presentation and his average score was 9 out of 10. From what I can see, the only complaint was that we didn’t let him talk for longer!

Robert Gerrish, Founder, Flying Solo




…I was very impressed with Tim’s input. He is intelligent, he has a presence and the energy to keep the momentum going over a prolonged period. The feedback we had from the twenty staff was universally positive.

Tim is a marketing genius. In more than 30 years in financial services, I have never seen anyone who comes close to providing the breadth of knowledge, unbound enthusiasm and practical advice that Tim offers. I sat spellbound through a 90-minute presentation, and came away with a mountain of ideas, some of which were adopted within 24 hours.

Charlie Maiden, Practice Development Manager, The Financial Link Group

I got so much out of Tim’s authentic insights on how to market yourself smarter as a small business. He had a personable practical approach, which was a refreshing change from the usual death by Powerpoint presentations so many of us have endured!

Tim, I thought your Adelaide session was one of the best I ever attended. You certainly struck a chord with me.

Tim Reid is a first class presenter with a true gift of moving small business owners into marketing action. At the recent International Sailing Summit in Melbourne, Tim captivated the Sailing Industry with his presentation on the ‘7 Small Business Marketing Wake-Up Calls ’. With his fabulous energy and practical approach to marketing, Tim managed to engage the entire room with his marketing insights and has sparked considerable ongoing interest post the event. I look forward to working with Tim on future projects
