Tim joined the NSW Police Force in 1994, just in time to experience the Force before the NSW Royal Commission into Policing commenced. He served throughout the Royal Commission and then the aftermath as attempts were made to reinvent the Police into something that they neither wanted to be, nor were equiped for.
Tim rose rapidly through the ranks and was a Detective Inspector at the Kings Cross Command by the time he was 33.
He saw service in a wide range of areas including:
- Uniform policing
- Investigation Support
- Child Protection
- The Drug Squad (formerly the Drug enforcement Agency DEA), and
- Internal Affairs
He then resigned to pursue a career in the corporate sector despite having a bright future in front of him in the Force. Nearly 15 years later Tim believes in the legalisation of drugs, a roll back in our enforcement mindset across Australia and a totally different approach to Law Enforcement Leadership.
Tim explores his Leadership Lessons and experiences from inside, what was, Australia’s most Corrupt Police Force.
Who is Tim?
Tim is well known for delivering thoughtful and provocative sessions to audiences across Australia and New Zealand. He is a leading expert on ‘Pragmatic Leadership’ in complex organisations. At the end of the day we all need to deliver outcomes and Tim has a clear focus on Outcome Focussed Leadership.
He has a clear focus on helping his audience:
- Understand what really counts in their roles as formal and informal leaders
- Discard the fads and fashions of modern ‘Leadership Training’ and get back to basics
- Challenge their status quo
- Believe in their ability to achieve whatever they put their minds to, either individually or as a group
- See the power of mindset and a ‘just do it’ attitude.
Tim has truly ‘been there and done that’. He draws on his experiences as a Senior Police Officer, a leader in Hospitality, his time in Banking and Finance and running his own business to provide meaningful, real life examples and stories to illustrate his points.
An energetic and engaging speaker who blends humour with hard hitting insights!
