Class 5

Helping organizations build great brands.

Tim works with companies around the world on marketing strategy issues through his firm Class 5 Consulting.
Many of his program involve speaking and teaching. He delivers keynote talks and leads seminars and classes on a range of topics including:
  • Building Strong Brands
  • Defending Your Brand
  • Developing Breakthrough Marketing Plans
  • Thinking Strategically about New Products
  • Growing an Established Business
  • Learning from Super Bowl Advertising

He also will consult on specific projects or issues. Due to time constraints, these tend to be short engagements, lasting up to one week.

Some of his recent clients include Eli Lilly, HP, Pfizer, Teva, AB InBev, Novartis, Halyard Health and the American Dental Association.

If you are interested in having Tim work with your group you can contact him directly.
