I first met Tim in 2010 when he was the Business Development Manager at Notts County Football in the Community. We have kept in touch ever since.
When he became an independent consultant in 2018, I leapt at the opportunity to bring him on board at Sky Blues in the Community (SBitC). His knowledge, connections and experience has proved invaluable in advancing our work, improving the lives of people across Coventry and Warwickshire.
Tim has headed up a team to secure £560,000 in revenue in his first 16 months with us, working just two days a week, from funders including The National Lottery, Sport England, Premier League, Children in Need, Lloyds Bank Foundation and EFL Trust.
He carried out research and business planning for our new £1.5 million community hub site in North Coventry, in partnership with the Football Foundation.
Tim has also helped me ensure SBitC adopts best practice for the Premier League’s ongoing Capability Process.
I am particularly delighted that Tim brought us his expertise in mental health work, enabling us to secure a sizeable grant from The National Lottery’s Reaching Communities fund. We are looking forward to seeing him roll out our new men’s mental health project over the next five years.
I find Tim very easy to work with. He is both reliable and creative, and my accountants tell me he delivers great value for money! I’d highly recommend him to other charity organisations in need of business development support.
