About This Speaker

Tim Tamashiro is a jazz singer, entertainer and former national radio host. He is the author of the Amazon #1 bestselling book How To Ikigai.

For a decade Tim was host of Tonic on CBC Radio 2. His role as Canada’s nightly jazz companion was one of his most cherished learning experiences of his lifetime. He departed from CBC to study positive psychology, wellbeing, and Ikigai (life’s worth).

Ikigai is an ancient philosophy from Okinawa, Japan. It encourages all people to live their “life’s worth”. Studies show that the pillars of Ikigai support overall wellbeing. Each person has an ikigai that, once understood, will enhance daily life and personal fulfillment. Best of all, Ikigai is a map with four directions to follow:

1. Do what you love
2. Do what you’re good at
3. Do what the world needs
4. Do what you can be rewarded for

Tim has learned that his own Ikigai is “to delight”. He shares his Ikigai every chance he gets whether he’s giving a speech, singing a song, telling a story or sharing a smile.
