Tim Dawes

International Communications Trainer | Award-Winning Author

I'm a communications consultant, trainer and writer. I specialize in influence and persuasion, usually in face-to-face situations and in digital marketing (see below for both).

Sample Training and Consulting Work

I've been a communications and persuasion consultant and trainer for 13 years.

When Microsoft rolled out Windows XP, the largest software roll-out in the history of the industry up to that point, I led a series of trainings and a team of 5 trainers to teach engineers and engineering managers to advance sales in executive briefings.

When Clearwire, the national wireless provider, received $1.6B in investment, I co-designed and co-led a year-long series of trainings to help GMs and VP-level executives generate momentum for their projects more quickly.

I trained 25 country managers in a Fortune 500 company in Central and Southern Africa in methods for having management review discussions effectively with staffs stationed around the continent.I developed the consultative sales process used by the Northwest Region of GTE before it was bought out by Verizon.

In the healthcare industry, I led an 8-person training team that helped hospital staff to diffuse situations that lead to law suits by helping them to create rapport rapidly with challenging patients.

Here's a sample of what people say:

"I consider Tim one of a handful of very special people whose training or workshops are a privilege to experience." - Alex Wright, US Director, Merriweather Training & Development

"I was immediately struck by Tim's ability to connect with his audience. He teaches the material with a deep level of understanding. I consider Tim Dawes a master instructor and an invaluable asset to our work." --Robert Stocking, VP Research, Vervago, Inc.

As an Award-Winning Author

The book I wrote on rapidly creating rapport and diffusing conflict in challenging encounters was named an Award-Winning Finalist for USABookNews Best Books.

A newsletter I wrote garnered several thousand subscribers and the APEX Award for publication excellence.

A series of whitepapers i wrote on patient satisfaction, diversity training, and solving medical malpractice suits using empathy was redistributed by a quality improvement center of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services - the largest insurer in the United States.

In Digital Marketing

My digital marketing firm, Effective Web Marketing, has helped dozens of small companies and professional services firms generate leads and achieve page one rankings.

Here's a sample of what people say:

“Tim Dawes really knows online marketing. He thoroughly analyzed my site. His feedback was actionable, and very revealing. In just a few minutes he was able to pinpoint an opportunity in my niche, tell me how to reach more people, suggest how to raise my position with Google Places, and suggest simple changes that could dramatically improve my position in my market and get more customers. Go talk to him. Right after he finishes re-working my website." - Mario Serban, LA Training Room

“We were thoroughly impressed with the work that Tim did for us through an in-depth analysis of our site. We have been having issues with converting traffic. Tim gave us numerous ways that we could focus on increasing traffic and conversions to help us make more money and expand our client base. If you are looking for someone who can help you see alternative ways to make more money and convert more traffic I would recommend reaching out to Tim." - Carrie Roberts, United Senior Living
