A hospitality professional with more than twenty-five years' experience at all levels of the industry - from tourist-spot coffee shop, to chef, award- winning bartender, bar manager and global ambassador for some of the world's most recognisable brands. After a severe mental health breakdown in 2016, Tim left Diageo to set up Healthy Hospo, his own not-for-profit company dedicated to building a healthier, happier hospitality industry around the world. His work in changing the conversation around health and wellness in the industry led to him being recognised as the 10th Most Influential Person in the Global Bar Industry in 2019. In May 2019 Tim followed his passion for sustainability and co-founded Avallen Spirits with former Diageo colleague Stephanie Jordan. Avallen has been recognised with multiple awards including ‘Green Launch of the Year' at the Drinks Business Green Awards as well as a Design Master at the Spirits Business Design & Innovation Awards and Worlds Best Speciality Calvados.
