Tim is able to tailor presentations to major on the following areas:
A career in the Fire Service and many years on the rugby pitch, as a fixtures secretary, coach and captain, coupled with over two decades of climbing, both trusting and being trusted, confirms that Tim is definitely a team player and believes in the benefit of collective effort.
As a Fire Safety and Operational Area Manager in the Fire Service, Tim demonstrated a variety of types of leadership required of the diverse circumstances and recognises the importance of styles of leadership in response to differing criteria.
Those involved with competitive sports and those that require the limits of physical endurance can only excel when there is personal motivation. Tim has demonstrated motivation in numerous areas. His commitment and enthusiasm is infectious.
Effective communication is key to success whether on an 8000m mountain or in an office. A continuous thread through our lives from birth to death and one we neglect at our peril. As a manager, mountaineer, rugby player or a Support Worker for non sighted adults with educational needs, Tim endeavours to always communicate effectively.
Never one to be idle, Tim believes fully in the saying, ‘One Life, Live It’. Having experienced personal tragedy earlier in his life, he is committed to achieving goals and securing best results. The obvious example of this is his Seven Summits status. As he heads towards his 60’s he shows no sign of resting up, as he continues to plan expeditions to climb the high mountains of the world.
