“Tim’s insight into human nature—what makes us tick and how we can harness the good in ourselves and others—is remarkable. I am indebted to him for his ability to help me identify the “one percenters” that make all the difference to individual and organisational performance.

Through his inquisitive, engaging style, he gets to the very heart of an issue and helps elicit those ‘light bulb’ moments that strike at the very core of an issue. The skills and strategies he has helped me develop will have a long-lasting impact on my performance as a CEO and on that of our organisation.”

“When we first started working with Tim, we were struggling as an organisation. We were getting our jobs done, but there was so much dissatisfaction and disengagement among our staff that something had to change.

Tim helped us clearly measure our culture as it was, and how we wanted it to be, and set us on a journey of cultural transformation. In just two years, we positively shifted our culture between 10 and 40 percentage points across all measures, staff satisfaction by 10%, and quality of output by 35%.

Tim’s input was critical to me as a leader. We still have a way to go, but we are making strong moves in the right direction.”

“Tim is the ‘go to’ coach for many in our business. His understanding of us as individuals and the culture we work within has made him a highly regarded and much valued member of our external business support team.

Tim has enabled the professional and personal growth and development not only of many individuals within our business, but also teams, facilitating a pivotal breakthrough moment for our Leadership Team as we worked through some change issues.

It made all the difference to us as a team and to the business. I am excited about the possibility of working with Tim for many years to come.”

Catherine Pemberton

Corporate Affairs Director, FMCG

“I met Tim at a time when our executive team was in some fairly dysfunctional space. I had a crucial conversation with them that morning before we headed into a whole-day session with Tim.

I didn’t know what to expect. I just knew we needed a strong shift in our culture. Tim had a way of creating a safe enough space where the truth could come out. By the end of the day, we were in a very different place as a team.

We had the breakthrough we needed, and we could build something from there. What followed was five years of strong partnership with Tim, where we successfully turned around the culture of the executive and the results of the whole organisation. Tim has been my “go to” adviser on leadership and team effectiveness and has helped us solve some tricky problems and achieve some remarkable results that we are very proud of.”
