Throughout the last five years, I have had to opportunity to work with over 150,000 audience members at over 300 keynotes throughout America. As a male survivor of sexual violence, a researcher, and former Director of HR, I love helping business, corporations, conferences, and colleges create cultures of equity. Let’s talk about how I can help your next event.
My Speaking Philosophy
Having spoken professionally for over 5 years now, I have delivered over 300 keynotes and workshops throughout the country. As a speaker with personal stakes in these topics, these issues are close to my heart and I know the personal experience is sadly all too familiar for many.
Through my speaking, it is my goal to end sexual violence and harassment. To accomplish this, I always focus on two philosophies.
It is my job to provide an on-stage presentation that is grounded in empathy, pulls from vulnerability, and engaging for your audience but is also knowledgeable, research-driven, and action-oriented. I share my personal experiences as a survivor and with sexual harassment to connect to vulnerably as humans. I share original research, data, and experience to provoke action with proven processes.
Second, I know it is an honor to speak at any event. To ensure I repay this favor, I want to be as easy going about logistics as possible while still focusing on your unique needs. Whether it is for a one-time event or long-term partnership, I always seek to make my partner’s jobs easier while delivering a speech your audience will be talking about for months to come.
Sexual Violence & Harassment Prevention
Regardless of the size of your organization, the demographics of your teams, or other aspects of your community, no individual should ever experience sexual violence or sexual harassment. I Sexual violence/harassment education has seen many changes through cultural and generational shifts over the years. My goal has been constantly redefining education with effective strategies and relevant stories that can bridge these gaps to engage participants.
To offer relevant and engaging program, my keynotes on sexual violence include original research encompassing a variety of topics from understanding how different generations are processing sexual violence to how masculinity impacts a work place. Ranging from quantitative to qualitative research, I’ve work to stay at the forefront of understanding the strategies that work, the solutions needed, and the approaches to take in maximizing efforts to eradicate sexual violence.
By framing my speaking around real stories – the stories I have experienced and those I have encountered through interactions with other survivors, audience members, and men across the country – I give participants a reason to create change. My experience and research illuminate the tools to support these reasons.
Pulling from my expertise and experiences, I welcome difficult conversations, never shying away but allowing audience members to ask hard questions to challenge perceptions and reframe the discussion towards productive outlooks.
Men, #MeToo, and Equitable Organizations
Through the recent years, the evolution and proliferation of the #MeToo movement has changed how organizations function. From the professional relationships built, the resources allocated, and the responsibilities of leadership, cultures are shifting.
As a male survivor of sexual violence, having experienced sexual harassment as a result of my work, and as a former Director of HR, I work to ensure that men are not sitting on the sidelines for these conversations but instead an active part of the dialogue.
How organizations are engaging, challenging, and building their teams and supporting individuals are critical to ensure we are creating inclusive cultures for all.
Throughout my programs on men, masculinity, and equity, I couple personal stories with hands on experience and research to create an environment that challenges norms while still welcoming participation.
The end result of my work? Organizations where policies match practice and terms like inclusion and equity are not just buzzwords. Spaces where sexual violence has no place, and everyone can be a part of the solution.

“Tim was an absolute gem! He has a perfect mixture of research, personal insight, and humor. Students, staff,and faculty all praised his ability to get to the heart of sexual assault issues. He is relevant and relatable, approachable and likable. I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to find a man to speak on these issues, but Tim was able to take a difficult subject and make it something we can all talk about.”
