Tim Gard - Biography

Tim Gard, CSP is a nationally recognized humorist and authority on stress reduction through humor. During the last decade, Tim has delivered his entertaining and informative lectures before federal, state, county, civic and professional groups attending conferences both nationally and internationally. He has written several articles on stress reduction through humor, his seminars have been televised in several states and he has been a guest on TV talk shows.
While working with the Montana Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services, he began to develop training to help fellow eligibility workers deal with stress, burnout and compassion fatigue inherent to their jobs.

He discovered in those early training sessions that sharing his own good humor and enabling the group to develop a Comic Vision of their own proved to be a very natural, effective and fun way for people to deal with, and even avoid, the sometimes intense personal and professional stress encountered every day. Tim's audiences quickly discovered that using his methods at work and at home enabled them to use humor as a skill.

Tim subsequently moved from Montana to join the staff of USDA's office of the Food and Nutrition Service in Denver, Colorado. While with FNS, he continued to lecture and consult at local and national conferences. In February, 1994, Tim resigned from the federal government to devote all of his time to seminars and training.

Today, Tim is a highly-sought-after speaker both inside and out of the human services field. He has a down-to-earth style and easy manner that results in a quick rapport with his audiences. Tim continues to concentrate on imparting very relevant information in a highly humorous format. Whether he is helping a group develop a Comic Vision or build a strong team through humor and juggling, the audience should be prepared for a fun, informative and fast-paced session.

Tim is a navy veteran who served tours in San Francisco and aboard the US aircraft carrier Midway based in Japan. He majored in communications at Flathead Valley Community College and Montana State University in Bozeman.
