Speaker, Author, Coach
When asked about his passions, Tim could talk about football – he’s spent time at WMU and with four NFL teams – or writing – his book “Strive: Life is Short, Pursue what Matters” is already available – or even family, as his wife and two children are three of the best things in his life. At the forefront of everything though, is his passion for helping others develop personally, professionally, and in their leadership journeys, which he’s able to do through coaching young athletes at Next Level Performance and his numerous speaking engagements around the country. Volunteering at the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission and mentoring young athletes fill the handful of hours he has left to spare.
Tim’s time at Western Michigan University also allowed him to earn his MBA. He currently leads the Talent Management function for Stryker’s Instruments division, where his team supports the sales training, leadership and talent development of over 2,000 employees worldwide. No surprise from someone as highly decorated for both his athleticism and his civic engagement.
