He is often invited by national organizations to speak at events, conferences and training courses geared towards senior executives. While at SW&M, Tim has co-produced a variety of educational manuals on topics such as information security, board meeting procedures and mergers.

Outside of the office, Tim can be found playing strategy games, building Legos (sometimes even with his children), enjoying a nice Pinot Noir and improving his home and garden.
