Karen and I had the pleasure of being invited to join Roger Love on stage at his Voice of Success 3 day seminar. Roger is our vocal coach, persona creator, communication guru, and friend. He has literally saved our marriage and changed our lives. Amazing when we thought we had gotten involved with someone who would just help us to be better speakers.

Voice of Success was held at the Zipper theater of the Colburn School of Music in Los Angeles. My best guestimate is over 300 people were there. This is our third Voice of Success event we have attended and everyone has been better than the last and I have always learned something new each time.
Karen and I were invited to talk some about how Roger's training has helped in our relationship. That is easy for us to do as he saved it after the marriage counselor told us we need to get a divorce. We each got to speak extemporaneously for a few minutes. Was...

I was invited to present to Colorado's biggest SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management) in January on the topic "Understanding and Using Neurodiversity to Bridge the Tech/Non-Tech Divide". This is a 1 hr session and is targeted at the Established Leaders level.

I had the enjoyable experience of working with writer Meagan Meehan on this interview. She asked questions which made me dig deep and consider angles I had not previously noticed.
Tim talks with Dr Romas about a number of items and issues dealing with the neurodiverse, having Asperger's, and Autism at Work. Tim's focus is supporting the diagnosed, undiagnosed, and unaware technology worker by helping companies become more "A"SD Lister friendly.
Through simple changes in processes, job duties, and management techniques companies can improve the performance, retention, and recruitment of the highly desired neurodiverse techie.

This was an extra special opportunity for me. Beyond the obvious reasons, I grew up in central NY not all that far from Cornell. Teaching at an institution which has been a big name since I was old enough to hear about colleges was extra satisfying. On top of that, some of the chapters from my "Geeks Guide to Interviews: 15 Critical Items for the Technical Type" and some units from my online course "Communicating with the Technical for the Non-Technical" were used as part of the course material.
