Simon Costa AO

I am writing to share with you how impressed I was with the way you facilitated our keynote address last week in Melbourne. Your engagement prior to the event ensured we were well prepared and at ease coming into the day, and your energy on the morning of the conference set the tone for an outstanding learning experience for the 1,400 business executives in attendance. Your combination of humour and commercially astute questions kept the audience highly engaged and prompted frank, honest and meaningful responses from the business leaders being interviewed. Your success was perhaps best summed up in the brief response from the head of the FPA, Marisa Broome; when asked about the impact of the opening event, she responded “It was wonderful!” Congratulations Tim. You did an outstanding job.

Tim Reid moderated a panel I was on for the Financial Planners Association in front of an audience of 1500. Prior to the event, as the Moderator, Tim was extremely organised and professional in his approach. Tim had conducted thorough research on each panel member as well as the conference themes, other speakers and audience. Tim then invested time with the panel members together as a team then with each of us separately. Tim was also very open to suggestions made by panel members as to how the panel could be conducted. Tim's attention to detail and professionalism shown as a Moderator was the best that I have experienced to date. During the panel itself, Tim engaged very well with the audience and each of the panel members, eliciting a very engaging, informative and inspiring discussion. Panels are not normally inspiring however this was - largely due to Tim's experience and style in moderating. Tim is an outstanding Moderator.

We loved having Tim Reid speak to our business audience at a Caloundra Chamber Better Business Breakfast event. Tim’s energetic presentation was a fantastic inspiration to bring his Boomerang Effect into your marketing efforts. The real case studies, insightful marketing tips and humour was great content for our small business audience to inject into their own marketing strategies and help them stay on top of the ever changing marketing game! Thank you Tim.

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.

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.

What I love about Tim is his passion and his desire to keep learning, and then share his learnings. … My business has benefited hugely from his considerable marketing expertise and it has been a pleasure passing on the things I have learned from him to my own small business clients.

In an information economy, it’s very rare to come across creative ideas that are both innovative and actionable. Timbo delivers both essentials in abundance. … Amazing energy too!

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!

Charlie Maiden
Practice Development Manager / The Financial Link Group

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.

Matthew Ripley

I was extremely impressed, not only by the way in which Tim manages to deliver so much quality information in one session, but also by the way he managed to inspire every person in the room to commit to taking action and implementing at least one of the ideas he articulates.
