As one of the few visible black leaders in the marketing and tech space, Tim is a recognised thought leader on themes including reaching a Gen Z audience and creating a Gen Z mindset, the new world of media and building and future proofing a multi-generational workforce.

Timo’s keynote topics include:  

The most influential generation we have ever seen: How to reach a Gen Z audience and create a Gen Z Mindset. With the phone as their mouthpiece to the world, Gen Z has a different ways of looking at the world and can amplify things they like and don’t like. Having built a company staffed with mainly Gen Z and helping brands to win the hearts of Gen Z, Timo looks at how to create a movement with Gen Z regardless of what type of brand you are.

Building a workforce for the future: How to future-proof your business and appeal across multiple generations. The success of any organisation is its culture and increasingly, it’s becoming more important that different generations need to interact effectively to achieve business success. Timo uncovers how to get the best out of each group, how to drive significance between groups and ensure that every member of the team is driven towards creating business value.

The role of new media: How influencer marketing and social media has changed the media landscape for the better. Influencer marketing has taken the world by storm and formed the foundation of some of the most successful companies worldwide. Having built one of the largest global influencer companies, Timo considers how to leverage this form of marketing and avoid the pitfalls that plague many brands and marketers today.

Instilling an entrepreneurial mindset: Lessons learnt from building and working with global brands.  Retaining, developing and utilising talent within an organisation is paramount and requires drawing on employees’ intrapreneurial spirit along with their entrepreneurial flair. Timo looks at how businesses and organisations that are committed to combining these two mindsets can enhance innovation, growth and drive long term business success.
