Tom Topping has spent his career and much of his spare time serving adults and children. His life's work in education and coaching is a record of continuing success in positions of increasing challenge and responsibility. With achievements in all aspects of teaching, coaching, and Human Resources, and with a particular emphasis on team building and training, he has led large-scale pilot programs in performance management, re-envisioned an entire human resources department, and managed the implementation of a $5 million educational grant. He served as President of Suncoast HR, the Pinellas County, FL professional human resources association in 2016 and 2017, and is currently a District Director for HR Florida.


As a former teacher and Director/Head Coach of Nike Team Florida, a Nike-sponsored travel basketball team, he worked with thousands of young athletes, including some of the nation's elite. Six NTF alumni have been drafted by NBA teams and many more are playing professionally overseas. Many of his former players play for their respective FIBA national teams and one even won a bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympic Games. During his tenure, over 120 NTF alumni received full college basketball scholarships (a value estimated at nearly 60 million dollars.) 


Tom is currently building his business, Training Perfected, as a full-time speaker, trainer, and coach. 


In his spare time, Tom enjoys travel, movies, theater, live music, and rarely misses a daily hot yoga class.
