Tim has a very special quality to use his executive experience in a way that makes you feel very comfortable and in control of the coaching process. He supports you to find answers to questions that need to get answered.

Arjan Groen
Consultant specialising in innovation

As the experienced founder of a start-up business the opportunity to work with someone who understands and cares is extremely important to me. Tim has been the ideal partner bringing his business coaching and experience into our circle, but most of all being himself. Tim’s ability to understand me as an individual as well as my business has helped create an environment where exploration and understanding are fun, safe and enlightening. Tim has helped me extract and understand much more about my fledgling business than I imagined

Raymond Holt
Founder, Agnentis Partners

Tim is a great business/executive coach: he is able to glean information to support you in finding answers to the questions you want answered whilst all the time making you feel very comfortable in process of doing so.

He uses his own experience of commercial roles with an understated but very engaging style.

I would readily recommend Tim if you are open to self-improvement with someone who’s experienced in guiding you through the journey.

Andy Parker
Non Executive Chairman at IDE Group, Non Executive Chairman Anywhere Group of Companies

Tim is an excellent, all rounded, methodical and consummate executive and business coach. This stems from a powerful combination of his experience of being in commercial roles with direct exposure to the realities they entail and his understated yet highly effective personal style.
He is able to listen, digest and distil information and then bring to bear an effective combination of questions, material and nudges. In doing so he enables his clients to assess, absorb and adopt changes and improvements that are required to ultimately benefit them and their organisations.
I can readily recommend Tim to anyone who is open to the need for self improvement and requires an experienced hand to guide them on the journey.

Jeremy Caplin
CEO with 30+ years Marcomms experience, Client and Supplier-side

Tim has worked with Imagineear on a series of related projects over the past 12 months. He is a keen observer of the different personalities in the team, and has used our respective strengths well to further the discussion. A thoroughly positive person, I have also found ​him to be an excellent listener and meeting manager, always well prepared and excellent at process, keeping people motivated over even long sessions. His views are interesting and well thought through, and I have come to value his opinion​ across a range of issues, not least on the team and management. ​We are a small group, and Imagineear is growing fast, and he comes with the benefit of recognising and contextualising many of the issues ​we face. This makes it easier for us to address them, and to move ahead faster.
