Speaking Engagements

Stacks Image 323
In life there are things we have to do, and things we get to do. Speaking at seminars and trainings is the thing I get to do. From small gatherings to large audiences, I love speaking and I hope that it comes across loud and clear! To discuss me coming to your event - whether as your Keynote speaker, break-out trainer or featured lecturer - please call me at 806.379.8282 or email me at timmons@sbcglobal.net.

I have participated in two conferences where Troy Timmons was the keynote speaker. His experience and grace while presenting puts the audience at ease even while discussing some of the most delicate topics faced by counselors. Troy balances out absurd and graphic stories with hope and tools for counselors to use with clients. His stories about personal contact with sex offenders make his words more poignant and meaningful. I like how he can balance humor with inspiration, and risk to walk where most people dare even look. He is candid, honest, open, and brilliant!
