Tim created and delivered a truly inspirational online Key Note session for our all staff - Ability Kick Off 2021 conference this week. Tim has incredible energy, passion and humour which combined with his amazing talent to make every participant feel a real connection with him - even over Zoom - made his session a huge success. The way Tim carefully customised his message, stories and the powerful lessons demonstrated that he really is a World Class Key Note Speaker and Change Consultant.

I have had the great pleasure of Tim facilitating and speaking at many of our team gatherings and have been particularly impressed by his stage presence, impact on the audience and in particular his connecting with our people at an emotional level in motivating positive change.
I attended an industry conference and saw Tim speak and facilitate a session. Impressed with his style of delivery and ability to engage the audience, I employed his services for a team building event with my APAC team. Tim took us around town to various fun and educational locations that provided interactive and relevant experiences for his course content. He was also able to bring in members of his team to reinforce key messages and deliver contextually specific material. Great event, my team walked away wanting more! Tim’s a gifted speaker and influencer.

Once upon a time...
Once upon a time there was a frog born in Malaysia who moved to Australia to study Psychology. While Sigmund Frog and Croak Jung were interesting, this little frog was interested in motivating positive change, and in particular, in metamorphosis. So he read Kafka but cockroaches weren't his thing. He wanted to help transform himself, and other people, into the better versions of themselves.
One day while working in his early corporate career, he was involved in a hugely disruptive change. Some people managed it well, but some others, including leaders, handled it dreadfully. The frog decided he wanted to motivate positive change: to help people be better at leading and embracing change, getting better results, embracing change faster, helping leaders lead people through change, and helping organisations win in change.
He reflected on his studies at Warner Brothers where he entered the superhero world of Gotham, and immersed himself into stories of transformations for frogs, but life was no fairy tale. Several corporate transformations later, and this little frog was an amazing transformational leader.
But he was still a frog.
It wasn't until he was kissed by the beautiful Princess Lydia that the frog turned into a handsome...
...Batman. (This is starting to get complicated.)
Batman and Princess Lydia got married and a couple of years later they had a little baby tadpole called Zoe and Batman transformed again.
This time into less of a vigilante and more of a daddy.
His focus is now on helping teams lead through change and win in change...
...as well as save the world from bad guys while being a super husband and father.
Unmasked his name is Tim Wade and he'll speak at your next event to help inspire change through amazingly engaging keynotes, practical bat-tips, and a sense of humour that only frogs and superheroes and awesome audiences like yours understand.
Oh, and he still saves the world from bad guys by the global giving he does after every event. So far over 3 million global impacts have been made from his giving.
Not bad for a little Australian frog born in Malaysia.
