What Are Tiamo's Keynote Concerts Like?

PSpeaking Lisa Cherney event 1icture the audience at the edge of their seats as Tiamo moves deeper into his heart-wrenching story about what made him walk away from the music industry broken and dispirited, only to emerge with an unshakable confidence, purpose, innovation, committment, and tenacity that led him to reach his biggest dreams! Then...

Tiamo breaks out his acoustic guitar and sings his original song "Freedom Day" that sends a ripple of chills over the crowd as they become instantly inspired to overcome any adversity in their life!

The Lesson?

Never quit, just find a different way. When you come from courage and create a new path, opportunities show up in ways that you never had the vision to see before. Your path will be illuminated the moment you make the decision you've been avoiding. What have you been avoiding, how can you face it head on, and what action will you take today that could change your life forever?


Tiamo shares his signature "Becky" story about a life-changing experience he had with a homeless woman and how we can turn ordinary every day moments into extraordinary events when we listen to our hearts and take action. Tiamo then launches into his song "Be The Change" as a wave of emotion and inspiraton fills the audience, guiding everyone to unleash the greatest version of themselves out into the world!  

The Take-Away?
Opportunities to touch peoples' lives are all around us. Imagine what would happen if people opened their eyes to this in the workplace every day and how this would impact customer service, teamwork, leadership, performance, and company culture. The ripple effect of this transcends the customer experience, which makes all the difference in loyalty, retention, referrals, happiness, and success for customers, students, and volunteers.

Testimonials - CEOs, Event Planners, & Seminar Leaders

“I wasn’t sure how well it would work out to bring Tiamo in for my biggest conference of the year. I heard great things about him, but never saw him live and this was a very important event.

I decided to take a chance and I have to say that the event wouldn’t have been the same without him! His energy and Keynote Concert transformed the room into a feeling of PURE MAGIC. I kept saying, "WOW, I'm so happy I went with Tiamo!" Since then...

I've had Tiamo perform at 15 different events over the last few years. Book him while you can. I'm always disappointed if I'm hosting an event and he's already committed on my dates. Now, I'm locking him in 6 months in advance or more to make sure we don't miss out!"

— Christian Mickelson, CEO of Coaches with Clients

"Before, I was looking for an extra “something” to make my public seminar series in Chicago over-the-top unforgettable. Yet, I have to admit that I am extra selective about who I share my stage with. But, once I hired Tiamo, he added an emotional dimension to my seminar that launched it into an all out “motivational rock concert” and provided the exact outcome I was looking for! In fact, even after the seminar was over, the crowd stayed longer just so they could hear more from Tiamo!

Since then, I’ve hired Tiamo to speak and perform at all my other events, including a private event for Jimmy Kimmel and his ABC production staff in Hollywood that was a massive success. Tiamo captures human emotion in his songs better than anyone I've ever seen or heard. Then, with his stories and lessons that tie in with them, he just crushes it! Now, I'm not just a huge fan of Tiamo, I'm also a corporate consumer of his talent—commissioning his writing abilities to create 3 meaningful musical pieces that I now use in my speeches and business endevours.

The downside to Tiamo is you won't be able to decide if he is a better speaker, singer, or songwriter because he rocks all angles so hard. Tiamo is your man!"

— Sean Stephenson, CEO of Time to Stand, Speaker-Author-TV Personality

"Tiamo, thank you for your AMAZING Keynote Concert at my live event "Be Juicy! 6-Figures On Your Terms"! You helped magnify the impact beyond measure! Your songs, stories, and motivational speaking deeply connected with my audience and transcended the event’s message in a way that was so inspiring for everyone! Plus, the original custom song that you wrote, produced, and performed live was such a thrilling surprise for the participants and an unforgettable highlight from the event! We were able to rock out and it's stuck in everyone's head forever! Thank you Tiamo for helping us create such a unique experience! I can't wait to have you back a 4th time!"

— Lisa Cherney, CEO of Conscious Marketing, Inc.

"Tiamo deeply touched many hearts at our international convention. Our audience fell in love with him! Tiamo is so talented, gracious, easy-to-work-with and filled with love for his audience. He's a 5-Star Speaker and Performer and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for genuine talent and a compelling, heartwarming performance. Tiamo, you are such a bright light in this world!"

— Paula Fellingham, CEO of The Women's Information Network (WIN), The WIN International Conference

"Tiamo was our Keynote Speaker at our leadership conference where he inspired our student leaders to reach beyond their limits to effectively lead their student groups. Tiamo's energy was so contagious and the students are still talking about the impact that he had on their leadership approach and way of perceiving life! He is a very gifted and loving soul who is able to spread his light across generations, races, cultures!"

— Shannon Nolan, Event Coordinator, Student Life and Leadership, California State University, San Marcos

"I invited Tiamo to my stage of 100+ Women Entrepreneurs because he inherently knows how to weave his teachings about how to be an effective public speaker, a great storyteller, and a powerful performer into a delivery packed session with amazing songs and a healing experience for the entire room. The women were BLOWN away! They loved him, they're begging me to have him return, and I saw an increase in sales as a result of his positioning of my program and honoring of my clients. Now THAT is a WIN-WIN. Thank you Tiamo!!"

— Sage Levine, CEO of Entrepreneurial Leadership Academy

Testimonials - Seminar Participants

"Tiamo’s presentation was so touching, inspiring, informative, and absolutely motivational! What I liked most was his ability to speak without coming across as “preachy” or “judgmental”. Tiamo’s warmth and graciousness made the audience extremely receptive to him and his message.

Then, Tiamo played his guitar and sang his song “Into the Rain” and it was THE PERFECT song to sing—about taking chances, and not living in fear or self-doubt. Afterward, I felt like I could take on the world!

—Mila G., Vista CA

"I cannot tell you how talented, dynamic, and inspiring Tiamo just have to experience it for yourself. Not only did he totally engage the audience, but he also gave us such practical wisdom that we can all use to enhance the quality of our lives both professionally and personally.

Honestly, I loved Tiamo's message, but when he broke out the guitar and sang those songs on top of it, I was just really moved. I left the event not only feeling motivated and entertained all in one, but with great notes that I plan to refer to in making some serious changes in my life. A few weeks or months from now, if there’s anything I will remember from this event, it will be Tiamo’s keynote concert !”

—John N., Del Mar CA

“Tiamo’s performance was incredible! Just thinking about it brings me back to that moment of feeling the electrifying source of life get triggered by each utterance of this gifted artist as he spoke and performed. It is a memory that I will keep in my heart forever.”

—Mary H., Los Angeles CA
