Meet The Team

Tim Osborn


You never stop learning; once you stop learning you stop completely. This is my basic philosophy for life. It ensures I stay focussed, am attentive to others and continue to improve as a person. My 5 core values are – Having Balance, Being Vicarious, Showing Empathy, Gaining Happiness and Living Contently.

My passion is (it might sound clichéd) seeing that ‘light-bulb’ moment in delegates. It’s the reason I chose L&D and it still gives me a buzz as it did 20 years ago. At the end of the day any learning intervention is about reaching learning objectives and that moment is a wonderful indicator.

All of my work and life experiences have allowed me to create a persona that I strive for in any classroom environment. However, a previous trainee in their feedback described it best – “Tim is relaxed, professional, interactive and informative; with a dose of humour”.
