Timothy Woolliscroft MA


I am an expert in applied creativity, an urban problem solver and a creative social entrepreneur. My leadership career has included organisational development, change management and strategic planning. Alongside professional health, arts and community development roles I have served on a wide variety of boards including strategic development boards in health and culture where I worked alongside local authority and government staff on strategic planning and problem solving. My current interests include exploring how the personalisation of data, and data sharing could be used to improve project monitoring and create greater social impact.
