“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. He was great to work with, the program was simple and he kept the whole group focused. Everyone who attended the workshop really enjoyed it and I believe it was money well spent.”
Tom O’Toole, Founder of the Beechworth Bakery
“I’ve known the lovely Tim Reid for a few years. 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 & Director, Flying Solo
