Senior IT Director, Microsoft EMEA at Microsoft



Tim has 25 years’ experience in the IT industry and his career has tracked through different roles in the IT sector. To build this general management capability, he has also spent time outside the IT space. This non-IT experience has been gained at leadership levels in brand marketing, general operations and supply chain management.

This gives him a broad appreciation of how IT can build strategic advantage across enterprises and how strong leadership is a key enabler of this. All of this experience has been gained in an international environment, driving innovation across different business and national cultures, where understanding the dynamics and diversity of organisations is critical to guiding change.

In addition to his core skills, Tim is also an accomplished and highly sought after public speaker, frequently called upon to present to external audiences on the growing strategic impact of both leadership and technology in the digitised business environment. For a sample of this, you can view a TEDx talk that he gave on leadership and innovation.
