Profile

Tim is an environmental scientist, author and adventurer with Masters degrees in environmental science and environmental law. He is committed to finding pragmatic solutions to major environmental issues related to climate change and biodiversity loss and uses his public speaking engagements, films and books about his expeditions and sustainability work to promote progressive thinking in these areas.

Current work

Tim is founder and leader of 25zero, a climate-change awareness-raising project that focuses on the world’s rapidly melting equatorial glaciers, and Global Ambassador for WWF-Australia. Tim was named Australian Geographic’s Adventurer of the Year 2013 and Conservationist of the Year 2016, the only person ever to receive both awards.

After over two decades of polar travel and work as an environmental scientist, Tim is a well-known public speaker, applying the lessons he has learned throughout his expeditions to talk about leadership, problem-solving, teamwork, change management and goal setting for both organisations and individuals.

Previous experience

Expeditions: Tim has undertaken unsupported expeditions to some of the world’s most remote regions, including to the South Pole, the Arctic and across the Great Victoria Desert. He has authentically retraced the 1913 polar journey of Sir Douglas Mawson as well as Sir Ernest Shackleton’s 1916 “double” - sailing a replica James Caird boat 1500kms across the Southern Ocean from Elephant Island to South Georgia, and traversing South Georgia’s mountainous interior - using the same rudimentary equipment, technology and rations as Mawson and Shackleton had 100 years before.
