Tim Redpath is recognized for his coaching skills, his quiet facilitative style of leadership and his strategic thinking. His passion is working with leaders who are making transformative change in their lives and their organizations and helping them achieve their goals. These are people to whom self-improvement is an unwavering state of mind, they never feel they have learned enough, and they are curious, life-long learners who are open to the world around them and to the opportunity to make a difference.

Prior to engaging with TEC, Tim was the founder and President of the successful Ottawa-based marketing and consulting firm, Train of Thoughts. His firm specialized in strategic planning, deep dive marketing research, marketing audits, market development and communications.

Additionally, he has held executive positions at Kanatek Technologies and Mitel Corporation in Ottawa, as well as senior marketing positions for Mitel Telecom and Kone Elevators in the United Kingdom.
