Tim has over three decades of business experience in the UK, Hong Kong and, for the last 20 years,
Australia. A veteran of a dozen boards and over 200 board meetings in CEO, Chairman and Director capacities, Tim has a strong view that board meetings can too often be a wasted opportunity. The chance to focus sharp minds and experience on issues of strategic importance to the business is sometimes missed as BAU and governance take precedence. Board Mining sets out to redress the balance and support the CEO, in particular, with thoughtful, practical guidance.


Tim has most recently been CEO of an ASX-listed technology business. He was also the CEO of A League club, Sydney FC.
