One day, you’re an award winning communications professional who decides to quit a high-paying, benefit-rich job to start your own company.

The next day, your wife tells you your 13-month-old son has autism, and you start a seven-year-journey that teaches you pretty much everything you ever thought you knew about communication was wrong …

Join Tim Miles as he teaches you the true principles of powerful communication. He was given nine blessings from a beautiful boy who looks at the world a little differently.

Uplifting, educational, heartwarming and funny, this opening keynote will open your heart as well as your mind.
