The video here is a sample taken from my keynote speech at the end of the 2013 Renaissance IO conference in San Francisco. My thanks to the annual Renaissance IO conference for granting permission to embed it on this page. I have more information below the video.
Some recent comments:
“Tim, like all the keynote speakers, was excellent and VERY relevant.”
“Excellent speaker, great for where I currently am in my business, with great advice and info.”
“Great to have such an accessible and articulate person. Real experience shows his credibility. Good at driving home the point about change, which technology people need to really remember and not get discouraged by.”
“Thanks for the editorial about women. Nice to see that recognized. Great amount of info. I need more paper!!”
“The only drawback was that it was very meaty for a last session when we’re already sapped.”
“Ended with a bang!”
I enjoy speaking to groups and I do it often. I’m also quite comfortable with webinars to reduce the cost to a group and traveling to me. I travel because I like to be face-to-face with the group, but it’s a disadvantage.
60-90 minute topics for groups, classes, companies:
All of the following are samples, customizable for your group, with varying titles. Click any link for details and downloadable slides:
- Business planning. Especially lean business planning, as in my latest book and online course.
- Starting a business.

About my Fees
Companies can expect to pay about $5,000 plus travel expenses if travel is involved, as little as $1,000 for a webinar. I charge significantly less for SBDCs, SCORE, educational institutions, or nonprofits. Please contact me directly for more information.
Business planning workshops
I’ve done business planning workshops for Apple, Hewlett-Packard, DEC, and others back in the early 1990s, before Palo Alto Software took off. I did a series of day-and-a-half workshops for Progress software from 2003 to 2005, starting with one in Chicago that became six because they were successful. Eventually my workshop was added in London, Stockholm, Barcelona, San Paulo, Buenos Aires, and Mexico City.

- Taller de Planeación en Español
Companies can expect to pay $10,000 per day plus travel expenses. I charge significantly less for SBDCs, SCORE, educational institutions, or nonprofits. Please contact me directly for more information.
Make it even more valuable
Please consider bundling either my business planning software or one or more of my published books with the workshops. I can get you volume pricing, and the addition of tools and take-home books greatly enhances the value.
