“Tim is a business coach for people who hate business coaches. Human, experienced, empathetic and effective. Phone him. Now would be good.” Ian Hogg - Outsiders.
I help people to grow their companies.
I work as a coach and a counsellor to founders and leaders, to help them see the wood from the trees, to make sensible and workable plans, and to help them clarify all the complexity that comes with running a growing company.
I have helped to build the reputations of some of the biggest global brands and the smallest local companies, all around the world, and I can help you to communicate the right thing, to the right people, at the right time.
I have worked with companies of all shapes and sizes but my specialist expertise is helping creative businesses, and you can read my '5 Point Manifesto For Doing Better Business With Businesses' here].
My simple formula for any kind of growth campaign is called Know, Know and Be Known and it’ll soon be a book. I write regularly about growing businesses with soul, conviction, integrity and real human personality, and you can read my kind of thinking here.
I work in different ways to suit different people’s needs and budgets, but there are four main areas:
Non-Executive Director & Interim Leadership
Strategic & Communications Reviews
Coaching, Counseling & Mentoring
Editorial, Blogging, Podcasting & Ghost-writing
“It’s only been a few weeks that we’ve been working with Tim but already we are seeing results. He has a cunning way of talking business without it feeling like business.” Rob Evans - Photographer & Filmmaker, With Love Project
“What Tim does skilfully, is help focus your precious time and allow you to become a more productive. Giving you the power to streamline your business, set goals and connect with the right people.” Chris Roberts - Uncoated & With Love Project
“Coming to Tim's workshop at the end of a long season was the best way to start thinking about what's next. It got my head out of the day-to-day grind and actively thinking about achievable steps to what's next, using what I have. Tim facilitated some really stimulating conversations between diverse people and ideas, which meant I left feeling inspired and recharged instead of it being prescriptive.” Meg Lobb - One Field Farm
"I would recommend Tim as a mentor and business coach because he very quickly helped me to focus on, and do, the things I needed to get done to achieve my priorities. He is also warm and giving so be careful, you'll almost definitely end up with a friend too." Alice Rose Elliott - Alpen Rose Yoga.
"The Know Sessions [workshops] are perfect if you want to find your own way to build your business. The space Tim held for us all to workshop our thoughts was so valuable. I’m full of ideas, and more importantly actions, for the next stages of my little studio.” Steve Arscott - Studio In The Sticks.
"What a fabulous day's training, a complete breakdown of some of the key elements we haven't been thinking about and really should be. We came away awash with fresh ideas and the knowledge of how to formulate a plan of action. Thank you for helping us see the wood from the trees!" Charles Fanshawe - Moorswood.
“Get down to [a workshop] if you can! Tim has been an integral advisor in Pikilily’s evolution over the past three years and would very much recommend this event if you are thinking of a new direction and need a smart and creative sounding board to help you work out your next move!” Claire Elsdon - Motorcycle Adventurer & Founder Pikilily.
