After graduating in Psychology and Philosophy from Oxford University and then studying law at the University of Central England, Tim qualified and worked in the litigation department of City of London law firm Wilde Sapte (now Dentons) before joining the Standard Chartered Banking Group where he held a number of senior operational legal and compliance positions in London, Singapore, India and the UAE.
Since 2001, Tim has specialized in the provision of integrity and financial crime related business education and consulting services to an international client base, particularly for boards, senior management teams and staff in high risk business units. Tim has worked widely both within the UK and European Union and further afield in Eastern Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Central and East Asia across the spectrum of financial crime risks including Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing, Anti-Bribery, Anti-Fraud, Integrity Due Diligence and Business Ethics and Codes of Conduct. He is the author of “Countering Terrorist Finance: A Training Handbook for Financial Services” (Ashgate) and “Mastering Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing ” (FT Pearson), the 2ndedition of which is forthcoming in November 2019.
As part of Seventh Wave’s Leadership and Development faculty, Tim brings invaluable insight into and knowledge of ‘the dark side of business’. He runs engaging programmes which help managers to incorporate key principles of business integrity into the way in which they run their teams, with a view to detecting problems early, doing ‘the right thing’ and avoiding potentially catastrophic integrity related scandals involving issues such as fraud, collusion, bribery and corruption, harassment, mishandling of whistleblowers, ‘cover-ups’ and other forms of corporate abuse.
