Tim spent that latter half of the twentieth century working in theatre and education in England and Ireland and the beginning of the twenty first century developing a new career in the heritage sector.
For the past six years he has been Chief Executive of the Egalitarian Trust which has two divisions, Visitor Attractions: Galleries of Justice Museum and City of Caves and the National Centre for Citizenship and the Law which delivers law and justice education at national heritage sites.
Since 2009 he has developed a new concept 'Education Syndicates' which promotes museums and other public buildings (Hosts) joining together in either thematic or geographical groups (Clusters) and having their education services delivered by a central organisation. The first Education Syndicate was set up between the Royal Courts of Justice, the Supreme Court in London as the Sessions House in Northampton.
Tim is a board member of Experience Nottinghamshire and through his role in Greater Nottinghamshire Partnership helped set up Sprit Nottingham which promotes culture in the city. From January 2012 he will be Visiting Professor for Heritage Management at Nottingham Trent University.
