A popular and engaging professional trainer and keynote speaker (he presented the largest occupational keynote to date at the National Safety Council Congress), in 2017 he was picked as one of the top ten presenters at the NSC over the last ten years.
“Tim leads by example, being a great role model for his region and his peers,” said Maribeth Anderson, MPA, CSP, Vice President of ASSE’s Council on Region Affairs. “Tim is truly dedicated to the profession and to working together for the advancement of the Society.”
