Everybody has a Tiger. It is the thing that snarls at us when we think about making a change in our lives and stops us developing and achieving our potential. In Taming Tigers Jim Lawless shares his proven and inspirational training programme to help you achieve your dreams by taming the Tigers in your life.

 Now for the first time, you can learn how to use these highly practical rules to overcome your fears and do things you never thought you could – in both your professional and private life.

  • Act boldly today – time is limited
  • Re-write your rulebook – challenge it hourly
  • Head in the direction of where you want to arrive, every day
  • It’s all in the mind
  • The tools for Taming Tigers are all around you
  • There is no safety in numbers
  • Do something scary everyday
  • Understand and control your time to create change
  • Create disciplines – do the basics brilliantly
  • Never, never give up!

Read case studies from people who have changed their lives by following the rules, and hear about Jim’s experience of grabbing his own Tiger by the tail, as he went from a thirty-six-year-old overweight non-riding consultant to a fully-fledged jockey and UK freediving record holder in 12 months – proof that Taming Tigers works!

We have worked with Matthew for many years and will continue to do so. His knowledge of the Speaker Market and ability to interpret our clients requirements is quite exceptional.

He is incredibly thorough in his approach and always goes that extra mile to ensure everything is exactly as required.

I am always happy working with Matthew, he has great credibility, he is very diverse in his ability to make things happen.

Matthew Fisher and I have worked together for many number of years. I have always found Matt to be honest, good natured and willing to work hard always carefully selecting the best appearances to suit my personality and lifestyle. The work Matthew has delivered for me over the years has varied from schools, colleges, attending film premiers, guest speaking  to name a few all of which I have lots of memories and thoroughly enjoyed.
