Tim Elliott

Hi I’m Tim,

Thank you for visiting my profile, please, let me take a moment to introduce myself.

For 20 years I've worked in the creative services industry providing strategic thinking and creative services to hundreds, if not, thousand’s of businesses. From owning my own agencies to working on the client side with great organisations in CMO level roles.

For the last 5 years, I’ve evolved. From the lofty heights of the creative services industry I’ve been fortunate to re-identify as a teacher and a facilitator. Now working with leaders and organisations that don’t just want something completed on their behalf, but want to truly understand, co-create and build great brand strategies, stories and purpose-driven cultures.

My work regularly manifests through public speaking, delivering keynotes as well as workshops with leaders and their teams on how creative, purpose-driven strategies can help them create a remarkable brand.

As a facilitator my deeper strategic and discovery work I complete through my role as a design strategist for The Spill Teem®. The Spill Teem are a creative team of strategists who work with organiszations worldwide to help develop their thinking culture. You can find out more about The Spill Teem® in the experience part of my profile below.

Outside of the ‘day job’ type work I also am proud to be the host of The REMarkable Podcast, where I and my co host Steve, have long-form, free-flowing conversations with people doing remarkable things in their life or work so that their stories might inspire us to remarkable things too. You can listen and subscribe here: www.remarkablepodcast.co.uk

You may also have noticed in my headline a mention of running. I am a full-fledged member of the cult of running and if you don’t find me on zoom I'm more than likely running around the hills, trails and roads of the East Midlands. I actually host a running network group, M&E (Move & Elevate), where we mix business and running together in a mastermind group connected with nature and movement. If you want to learn more please drop me a message.

I think that’s enough about me now, so, what about you?
