Brand strategy, communication testing, anything qualitative, figuring out issues within organizations, bad puns.

Tim’s cool and collected ability to listen and then provide astute practical advice is second to none. We think it’s because he’s old—he says “nothing surprises him after 25 years in the research and consulting business”. Regardless, he has an instinctive ability to find creative solutions on the spot. He's the kind of person you want at the table when your organization is under pressure; when you're the decision-maker upon whom so much depends; when you need someone to come up with a completely different way of thinking about an issue, or when you just need a sounding board. He’s an excellent blend of researcher and trusted consultant: concise, perceptive, thorough and unflappable.
