"I have seen Tim speak to large groups in a ballroom setting and small groups in a TV studio or senior citizen’s center. In all of these, he was able to reach those present with messages that made them feel uplifted, empowered, and very much validated in their mission-driven work. I can recommend Tim for audiences of all ages.” Susan Ponder Stansel, president and CEO, Community Hospice of Northeast Florida.

Over the last thirty years, Tim has shared his experiences as a journalist and author, and the lessons of his friendship with Fred Rogers, with audiences large and small across the nation. His fees are variable, depending on the budget of his host, though for events outside North Texas, all travel expenses must be defrayed.
