Hi, my name is Tim, I am a consultant and academic with an interest in how digital technology could be used to transform the world for the better.
The combination of my management experience, creative background and study of technology gives me a unique ability to help organisations re-imagine the future and their potential role in it.
My digital health doctorate could hardly be more relevant to the challenges people are facing around the world right now. I explored how digital technology could help improve healthcare efficiency. Much of the insight into digital transformation is however relevant to a wide variety of organizations, not just in health.
My arts background gives me a plethora of creative techniques that can be applied to digital innovation. During my management and organisational development career I applied my skills to develop innovative projects to address complex health and social challenges.
In management and leadership roles I developed a wide range of leadership and strategy skills including team building and change management. The combination of my management experience, creative background and study of technology gives me a unique ability to help organisations harness the potential of digital technologies to improve processes, find new business models or to improve services.
My approach typically combines systems thinking, creativity, research activities and rigorous project management. Activities I can carry out include:
- Workshop Facilitation

Prior to moving into management roles I spent a decade as a professional circus and street theatre artist. During this time, I gained design skills through learning how to direct shows and facilitation shows through teaching hundreds of workshops to thousands of participants. More than anything else however my circus arts career gave me the ability to be creative, to innovate. Whilst working in the community sector I applied my creativity to develop innovative community service projects. In my PhD I applied my creativity to exploring creative approaches to improving public sector efficiency. Given everything I have outlined above, you might now see how I could have the perfect background to help your organisation develop innovative new service approaches and to improve efficiency, through the application of digital technology. If you want to discuss how I can help you or your organisation don’t hesitate in getting in touch, time is often crucial in this increasingly digital world that we all live in.
