“ Tim is a very engaging and entertaining speaker who left us inspired and challenged! ”
Tim loves sharing adventure with young people and believes in the magic of Adventure Based Experiential Learning (ABEL) in a camp environment. He began focusing his career specifically on working with children living with a chronic or life threatening illness in 1992.
He has delivered adventure therapy programs to children in 40 countries and during his career has held recreation management positions all over the world.
In 2002, he founded Purple Soup to provide challenging activity based programs for children and their families affected by serious illness. These programs are designed to rebuild confidence, self esteem, trust and courage in a safe, fun and supportive environment.
Tim holds a BA in Recreation Management, a Post Grad in Adolescent Counselling and instructor qualifications in many outdoor pursuits. The role of directing the organisation is varied and encompasses many roles however his preferred job title is “Game Maker-Upperer”.
He is terrified of even the smallest spiders but is on his way to conquering this fear after honeymooning with his wife Emma in the Amazon – surrounded by huge Tarantulas!
