What is TimbsComms?

TimbsComms is a niche communications agency. It is led by Olivia Timbs who is part of a network of professional trainers and communicators. 

Olivia has over 30 years’ experience in journalism and publishing, gained from working on UK national papers and for the specialist health and medical press. 

Olivia has been an accredited trainer since 2013. Her courses include: Effective writing, for anyone who struggles to express themselves and lacks confidence; How to write an academic paper and get it published, for aspiring academics whatever their discipline; and How to turn your research into a news story for scientists and healthcare professionals interested in developing their journalistic skills. Using similar principles she can help people deliver speeches or make presentations.

The courses are usually run as one-day workshops for up to 16 people. In response to the pandemic Olivia has adapted the workshops so they can be delivered as interactive webinars via Zoom or Webex. Instead of being delivered in one day, the content is spread over three two-hour sessions. She also offers one-to-one mentoring and works with small groups.

So if you find writing difficult, want to increase the chances of seeing your academic paper published, if you want to improve your presentation skills or be confident that you can handle a tricky press conference, just get in touch and we will find someone to help you.
