Who is Tim?
I'm Tim Cakir, CEO of TaskDrive and an expert in driving revenue growth. With my team, I've helped hundreds of companies achieve their goals, from securing funding to increasing revenue.
I'm proud to have a track record that includes securing 1.7 million euros in Horizon 2020 funding for two startups and growing one startup's monthly recurring revenue from $80k to $300k in less than 18 months. I've also completed numerous projects, including implementing OKRs, building company dashboards, rebranding, and launching new products.
In the past year, my focus has shifted towards the exciting field of Artificial Intelligence. I've dedicated extensive time to understanding AI, particularly ChatGPT, which has become an invaluable tool I affectionately refer to as 'my best friend'. My journey has made me skilled in creating tailored GPT models, such as Revenue Catalyst and GammaScout. I'm also passionate about sharing this knowledge and conducting live sessions to teach the effective use of AI in enhancing workplace productivity.
As a growth consultant and CEO with a newfound interest in AI, I look forward to discussing on your podcast how AI and AI-powered tools, like ChatGPT, can revolutionize business growth strategies.

The GCO Framework: How to prioritize in startups without OKR
OKRs have been all the buzz over the last few years. However, whether you consider a startup, scale up or even enterprise, the OKR framework can be rigid, static and difficult to establish. A lot of companies talk about goals, but no one talks about challenges. On top of that, many companies do not have a system in place to acknowledge ideas and opportunities that team members may have to address, these challenges. This is where Tim's Goals, Challenges, Opportunities (GCO) framework comes in. On your podcast, Tim can talk to your audience about his proven GO framework that can help take your start-up's revenue, profits and growth to the next level by allowing you to focus on the right projects at the right time.

Data-Driven Approach is BS: Consistent growth comes from being data-informed

In the end, better decisions lead to better revenue, profits and growth.
How to include everyone on your team into growth-focused discussions
