Tim is a cool guy. Not cool as in hip (although he tries), but cool as in unflappable. He's the kind of person you want at the table when your organization is under pressure; when you're the decision-maker upon whom so much depends; or when you just really need someone to come up with a solution that works.
As a noted research leader, Tim's steadying advice and counsel is well honed within Canada and internationally. He directed Canada's first-ever election polling program conducted entirely online, and it's no coincidence it proved to be the most accurate poll in the country. Delivering executive leadership at Angus Reid Strategies and Ipsos-Reid for close to 20 years, Tim has provided insightful guidance to major brands, all levels of government, start-ups and not-for-profits.Whether the client is Blackberry, Dell, Air Canada, ENMAX, the premier of a province, or a publicly funded NGO (we aren't making this up - he's worked for all these, and more), Tim's cool and collected ability to quietly listen and then provide the perfectly astute and practical advice needed is second to none. And while he's at it, he'll probably crack a few jokes. You don't have to laugh, but some people find him funny.
He's concise, perceptive and thorough, with an instinctive ability to find creative solutions on the spot, and in the heat of the moment.
"There's no BS here. People are open and accepting. Do a good job and you'll be rewarded. Everyone will talk to you (especially if you are new to Calgary). Send an e-mail or leave a voicemail... messages are returned, business is discussed, and opportunities arise. It's a great place to be in business."
