“This is a young man possessed of extraordinary courage, but also great sensitivity and respect. To anyone who believes that there are no worlds left to be discovered, I offer up the evidence of this magnificent tale.” - Elizabeth Gilbert, Author Eat Pray Love

In one of the most unique odysseys of modern times Tim Cope spent three years on horseback among nomads traversing the Eurasian steppe, accompanied by his dog Tigon.

Current work

Following a tour of the national and international stages with his book and film, our veteran exclusive speaker of more than 13 years is available all over Australia for special events and keynote presentations.

Previous experience

Awards: For the celebrated Australian Adventurer Of The Year, that was just the beginning.

Author: Tim went on to create the popular ABC TV series, and international award-winning book, On The Trail Of Genghis Khan (Australian bestseller).

He has now been appointed international envoy for Mongolian tourism and selected by the Australian Museum as one of the greatest Australian explorers of all time (the museum is currently showing Tim's story as part of the Trailblazers exhibit).

A masterful and deeply passionate storyteller, Tim has broken with the stereotype of conquest-focused adventure and become renowned as a champion of the rare human wisdom found in some of the world’s least known traditional cultures.

Tim has become a recognised ambassador for the timeless values of discovery in a fast-changing modern world.

Tim reframes discovery as something that can be experienced internally on the day to day level of the workplace.

His message of success and happiness through resilience, taking responsible risks, embracing cultural and individual differences, and developing relationships based on understanding and respect has found universal resonance.

Talking Points

Learning to 'Rush Slowly'

Tim will draw on his learnings about resilience, patience, and mindful determination.

Make friends with the unfamiliar

Learning to be curious, not offended when confronted with a diversity of cultures, ideas, and when overcoming difficulties.

Discovery in the modern world

Why the experience of learning and discovery will never grow old in an era of jet travel and smartphones.

Clear decisions

Breaking through the noise and clutter to focus on what is important.

Trust in fate but always tie up the camel

The tight rope between being master and taking control of destiny through planning and conviction, yet remaining open minded to the unexpected and having the humility to accept approaches that are different.

Odds favour the brave

Growth and reward from responsible risk taking.

Mountains never meet but people do

Extending oneself to create a network of friends beyond the comfortable circle. Cherishing relationships.

Tim's affable, easy going personality immediately endeared him to his audience. His relaxed manner and sense of humour suited his topic perfectly. The feedback from the ASTW members was very positive. All those who commented said they enjoyed his talk and slide/video presentation immensely. There were many who approached Tim after his presentation to ask questions and get to know him on a more personal level: a clear sign that he had made an impact with them.
