SPEAKER TESTIMONIALS

I was incredibly fortunate to have Tim agree to guest lecture my MBA 730: Management of Technology and Innovation processes in March 2019. He provided an incredibly insightful presentation on topic of open innovation that had the students thoroughly engaged and entertained.

He was also kind enough to spend extra time answering questions from the class with thoughtful and poignant responses that demonstrated the depth of his real-world knowledge and experience. He left the students and me with a lasting impression that had us wishing that he’d come back to speak for us again.

I would recommend Tim to anyone looking for an innovative thought leader to jumpstart their creativity; I assure you, you will come away feeling inspired!
