ENGAGE

A clip from Creativity Hacks from an Entreplaynuer. Here I break some rules... and remember the awesomeness that is my Mom! 

“Tim Walsh is personal, engaging and inspiring! Over the past two years, he has presented on several professional development topics for our association’s members – the last one being our closing keynote for our annual statewide conference. Tim’s oh so relevant message of connectivity brought our attendees to their feet in a standing ovation. Thanks to Tim’s help, our conference attendees left the Florida Public Relations Association’s 81st Annual Conference inspired to be better PR practitioners.”

         — Cheray Keyes-Shima, APR, CPRC

FPRA Executive Director 

“Tim Walsh is one of the most popular guest speakers at Otis College of Art and Design. When he finished speaking at Otis recently, the students remarked on how quickly the time passed and eagerly asked if he could come back to speak again.”

 

— Deborah Ryan

Chair Toy Design Department

Otis College of Art and Design

"I have attended the State Bar of Arizona Intellectual Property Section program since 1992. The presentation by Tim Walsh this year was absolutely the best presentation during that 18 year period. His depth of knowledge, exuberance and sense of humor are unique. His message is interesting, entertaining and thought provoking. Encore."

I've designed or co-designed many games over my 30 year career in toys. This year, I co-founded  Roo Games with a some Australian mates with the mission to connect people through play. What could be more fun than that?
