To quote John Prine, Tim Miles grew up as “a young man from a small town with a very large imagination.”
Today, companies, colleges, and conferences consider him one of the most engaging public speakers on the planet.
Fueled by chronic abnormality, childlike curiosity, and a helpless addiction to wondering what makes people do the things they do, Tim has been helping organizations and their humans communicate more powerfully for 25 years. During his decade as a resident of the Show-Me State, Tim frequently guest lectured at the University of Missouri and spoke at the inaugural TEDxMizzou conference sponsored by the Reynolds Journalism Institute.
His first book, Good Company: Making It, Keeping It, Being It, went to #1 on Amazon’s Business, Sales, Marketing, and Entrepreneurship charts, and his second book, Brand Your Own Business, has helped hundreds of companies and thousands of people grow good companies into gooder ones. (The first drafts of both books, incidentally, were finished at Table 49 of D. Rowe’s restaurant in Columbia.)
He’s been called a Rainmaker, a Creative Genius, Very Tall, and once—in Ms. Killhoffer’s 3rd grade class shortly before getting paddled—Little Timmy Tattletale. Now, he tells tall-but-true tales on stages around the world. He’s a father of two and husband of one who lives amidst country and western and biscuits and gravy outside Nashville, Tennessee.
