Who is TimmiT?
Tim Green spent 26 years in the Canadian military as an army signal officer. This gave him an excellent background in telecommunications and information systems along with the leadership and management techniques to get people and technology to work together. He served in many different capacities throughout his military career working in both English and French. This covered the spectrum from troop commander overseas with the United Nations to senior staff planner in various army headquarters in Canada. He retired with the rank of Major from a position as CIO of a 12,000-person organization.
As a professional engineer for more than 35 years, Tim has served in various capacities as general business and technology consultant. This included e-commerce course instruction, strategic studies, on-site coordination of technical projects, project management, and web site design. His clients have included provincial governments, educational institutions, national organizations, and small businesses.
Tim was part of the leadership team for a major world-wide computer manufacturer. He set up and managed the group providing bilingual English and French technical support to corporate and government clients. In this capacity, he worked with employees and the clients themselves interchangeably in English and French.
Tim has 10 years' recent experience as a government project and contract manager for a wide range of projects. This included contract negotiation, design of request for proposal evaluation processes and criteria, and assistance to government departments in the procurement of a wide range of services.
As part of his eclectic background, Tim has considerable experience as an English language editor. His engineering background gives him the advantage of understanding the content in a broad range of business, technical, and scientific subjects to add value in editing work in those areas. This firm foundation is also useful in preparing tender documents and requests for proposals. Tim also has experience in editing papers for those who are writing in English as a second language. Because he is fluent in both English and French, he understands the challenges inherent in a multilingual environment.
