Tim Fortescue is an extraordinary communication coach who ignites transformation and drives success. With a background in basketball coaching and a passion for helping individuals grow, Tim’s journey has taken him from volunteer high school basketball coach to founding his own coaching venture, 40 Watt Coaching.
