According to author Anne Lamott, “laughter is carbonated holiness.” If that’s the case, then Tim (a.k.a. Tag) is the spiritual elder of KI. As a facilitator, he has the ability to transform a room full of jet-lagged scientists into a cathedral of laughter, energizing them for a day of vigorous innovation. Rumor has it that his former career in finance was just a cover for his nightly gigs in improv comedy. He has an undergraduate degree in economics and an MBA in finance from the University of Rochester and is co-author of a 2014 book entitled Never Be Closing: How to Sell Better Without Screwing Your Clients, Your Colleagues, or Yourself.
