Copyright 2011 Tim Beasley
Any glamorous and prestigious event could use some real “Presidential Power!”
National Keynote speaker, Emcee and Actor Tim Beasley returns as "President Ronald Reagan" for inspirational and motivational speaking engagements in his remarkable celebrity impersonation in looks, manners, voice and attitudes of the ever popular US 40th President. President Ronald Reagan was declared by popular vote as one of the top 3 Presidents of the 20th Century.
During President Reagan's remarkable eight years administration of 1981 to 1989, our nation excelled in raising our living standards for all, and it seemed that a positive energy of accomplishment was in the very air. In fact, the "it can be done" attitude radiating from his Oval Office was a refreshing beacon shining bright with American pride, honor, great ideas, ingenuity, innovation, progress, faith and strength in character and positive thinking.
Using the familiar framework of his other "Presidential Tributes" he has performed (George Washington, Abe Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison), Tim began his 29 years of performances in likeness to President Reagan during 1986, a great Reagan Administration year!
President Reagan was a true American who lived by the simple, yet eloquent message he kept as a daily inspiration on a small sign on his Oval Office desk that read "It Can Be Done!" A grand motivator, President Reagan gave Americans a vision of pride in accomplishment and through acting on and not talking about ways to build a better tomorrow. His "Reagan-omics" made the American who worked to raise his standard of living and faith in the American world market a truly successful effort. God knows America could use President Ronald Reagan back now, and his ways and principles messages, with all of the mud and crud coming out of Washington DC these fruitless and declining standard of living days.
As a powerful motivational and inspiration keynote speaker, Tim has based and titled his 'President Ronald Reagan" banquet talks on that grand little sign that gives pure positivity, “It Can Be Done.”
(You can purchase these unique dupicates of his sign at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library...or, let our "President Reagan" bestow one of his to honor someone at your special event or celebration!)
Being a well-versed actor in all media, Tim has performed professionally in a variety of special "President Reagan" events since 1986. Tim is a scholar on the life, times and career of Ronald Reagan, and can portray President Reagan in true and sincere historical content, as well as in a light-hearted salute to his great sense of humor and amiable charisma. As a Ronald Reagan supporter and fan since the 1980's, Tim knows "Ronnie" well enough to speak and converse as "him" on any subject in the first person. You and your guests will feel as though you're actually meeting President Ronald Reagan!
"President Ronald Reagan" is a great guest for all American themes, political, patriotic or historical special events.
There are several unique "flavors" of appearances, just like President Reagan's favorite candy, the Jelly Belly jelly beans!

Folks love to get a photo with "The Great Communicator."
Having a "Presidents Day Sale" or special sales / marketing event?“ "President Ronald Reagan" will cut ribbons for grand openings, make motivational speeches for your "corporate congress" and get your marketing and PR messages across as "The Great Communicator!"
Here's a fabulous idea for a celebration you may be having to honor an individual who is retiring, has a significant birthday, promotion, etc. Have "President Reagan" "roast" them, much like he did as a guest on the classic Dean Martin's Celebrity Roasts. For a fun and fabulous roasting engagement, he will deliver a 'this is your life" style of commentary on your special "Man or Woman of the Hour," based on your and your colleagues best and illustrious stories of the person's "good, bad and ugly," in a good humored way, full of hilarious quips....Your roast-ee should know that being "roasted" is indeed a high honor, and testament to their good nature! The two photos below show "President Ronald Reagan" in action roasting a big Republican businessman for his 50th birthday party in the grand ballroom of the historic Palace Hotel in San Francisco, CA.
(Photos are "still frames" from a video...see this video on the video link!)
Let "President Ronald Reagan" be your time-travel ticket master back to the great 80's! As the leader of the free world from 1981 -1989 he was there for MTV, E.T. , The Breakfast Club, The Terminator, The Big Chill, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, New Wave Music and so much more!
During President Reagan's administration, the USA lead the world, as it well should, in high tech. The Reagan administration inventions and innovation progress include the world-changing CD-ROM, Apple Computor, MicroSoft Windows, digital cellular phones, the super conductor, Doppler radar, disposable cameras, lots more and of course that workhorse of the space age, the remarkable Space Shuttle!
As we mentioned before, President Reagan always enjoyed a good laugh, and so when requested we add a generous helping of good humor to our "President Reagan" appearances. Nothing beats the fun and excitement of a "Presidential Personal Appearance," especially with this truly unique performance!
Here's a very funny anecdote about Tim's Anaheim White House performance...
The large group he was performing for had their evening banquet outside in a large tented area. At the end of his after-dinner "Reagan" talk, Tim likes to always have everyone stand and join him in singing "The Star Spangled Banner." Typically after it's roaring patriotic conclusion, he quips 'Well, that's a sure way to insure a standing ovation!"
On this particular night, unknown to Tim, the world famous Disneyland only a few blocks away across the Santa Anna Freeway from the Anaheim White House was going to have a fireworks display. When the song reached it grand finish, everyone cheered, yelled "Play ball!" and stepped out of the tent into the dark of the night sky. Suddenly, Disneyland, by coincidence, started their fireworks and without missing a beat, "Reagan" says, 'We spare no expense for our very special guests!" to an uproar of laughs, whistles and cheers! Great event!
Let's have some "comparison" fun....the photo collage below shows Tim (2) in light makeup as "Reagan" as well as some very famous and expensive actors in this role. Consider that the movie makers had a much more grand budget for makeup effects on the actors to create a Hollywood "Reagan" illusion. Also consider that Alan Rickman (1) made mucho moolah for his role, as well as James Brolin(4) and Richard Crenna (6). Ronald Reagan being an actor himself naturally, and even the inanimate Madame Tussauds' "Reagan" Wax Mannequin would cost you quite a bit of US Benjamin Franklins, too!
