Testimonials for Tim Ferguson

We recently worked with Tim for our 1st Birthday Celebration (Enable). Tim was an engaging and funny speaker for our event. He brings wit and wisdom to his personal story and motivated our team. Bringing humour to the serious subject of people living with a disability.

Shari Cosgriff, General Manager Business Service Centre, Commonwealth Bank


Tim Ferguson was voted by our team as the best speaker ever to come in to 20th Century Fox. His talk inspired us to think differently, see the stimulating opportunities that comedy and creative thinking opens up in our work and our daily lives, and that overcoming challenges (whatever they might be) is a positive part of our shared experience. Not only that but we all really enjoyed it, and had a great laugh too. Highly recommended.

Sue Zerk, Marketing Director, 20th Century Fox Australia


Tim Ferguson was the perfect start to a morning! He spoke about the start of his career, his MS diagnosis, and he even got the team involved with his comedy act, something we don’t do on a day to day basis – lots of fun! Tim is such an inspirational and happy man and has definitely motivated me to look at life a little differently. I am sure I am not the only one that has been positively impacted by this great talent and man. Would definitely recommend Tim to anyone that asked!
