Interactive, Energetic, Effective, Personable Presentations.

For over 25 years, I have addressed audiences on stage and through virtual presentations at companies, organizations and universities across the United States and around the world. Through my high-energy, engaging, dynamic and entertaining, keynotes, in person and online workshops, masterclasses and consulting sessions, I am devoted to providing value and relevancy to my audiences.


"As your teacher and guide, my job is to make things understandable and goal is to help you to take what you learn and put it into practice."


I like to think of myself as someone who, after almost 30 years of real-life business experience, 'in the trenches, not the Ivory Tower' often offers unique and sometimes common-sense approaches to solving what seems like complex problems for businesspeople.  


I'm a father, partner, native New Yorker and a heart attack survivor. I've been an entrepreneur since age 17 and started, owned, operated, managed and/or sold four businesses.

10 Reasons To Have Tim Houston Speak or Train at Your Next Event:


He Walks His Talk

In a world increasingly filled with speakers, "experts," and "gurus" who just talk about subjects with little or no real-life experience, as a business owner and entrepreneur for over two decades, Tim lives in the trenches of business, not the Ivory Tower! Every day, Tim actually lives, breathes and believes in what he teaches.


Tim Builds an Intimate Relationship with Every Audience.

Tim just doesn't show up and speak. He makes himself available to interact with your audience at your venue before and/or during each event. If you have an event app, social media presence or special hashtag, he will also engage with your audience on these platforms, using these tools.


You get an Interactive, Energetic, Inspiring, Fun Program.

Tim's programs and events are never dull. Whether giving a keynote presentation, conducting a workshop or seminar, Tim makes sure that audience members will be active participants, not mere spectators.
