Tim Richardson

Tim has a reputation as a great executive coach, a lively, humourous and engaging communicator and as an inspiring facilitator with groups, balancing business experience with a passion for people. He has a degree in business studies, is a fellow of the chartered institute of bankers and is accredited to use several coaching and psychometric tools.

He has spoken at a number of conferences around the world on the subject of talent and leadership and has recently published his first book on the subject, “Monday’s Times”. His emphasis and passion centres on how to lead responsibly and authentically, and this is reflected in his book, which tells the story of a senior executive’s search for meaning and soul in his work.

Professional Background

Tim has worked in the field of people development for over 20 years. His career began in the financial service industry with the Woolwich Building Society, where he helped establish a leading edge learning and development function bringing culture change throughout the business.

He has run a niche leadership, talent, learning and development consultancy business since 1993, drawing together people development specialists and creative communicators.

He has extensive international experience including the Far East, Central Asia, mainland Europe, North and South America and Africa.

Between 2000 and 2009 he worked with PwC as Head of Leadership Development and Talent Management and was the driving force behind the setting up of comprehensive talent management strategy, initially in the UK and subsequently as part of a global team cascading talent management approaches, tools and techniques around the global network. He originated the firm’s Emerging Leaders Programme and created innovative senior leadership development programmes for key partners and senior people around the world. He has been a coach to partners and directors, and has established strong relationships with leading business schools such as London Business School and Henley Business School.

Tim's recent work has seen him designing and delivering leadership development programmes globally within HSBC, helping senior people transition to Heads of Function and Business Leader Roles whilst adopting a new paradigm for leadership in the organisation. He has also designed and delivered leadership workshops for senior leaders at BBC and BOC, and has been working with Macmillan Cancer Support, helping them with culture change and learning initiatives.
