    Lecturer at Bangkok University

    I recommend Dr Tim Cornwall wholeheartedly and without reservation. As a fellow teacher, Tim not only understands the needs of his students, he is adept at choosing the right curriculum to match those needs. In the classroom, his highly effective delivery of his lesson content leaves a lasting impression on his students.



    Tim is one of the most outgoing and positive people I know. Working as partners, Tim and I have been able to do more together than either one of was able to do alone.

    Live and Retire in Thailand for A Better Life

    I've known Tim for over a year, through Toastmasters, Rotary and as a participant in my workshops. He exudes confidence and authority, he leads quietly but firmly, and he speaks superbly. He is always striving to improve himself, reworking his Toastmaster abilities even though he's already a Distinguished Toastmaster. He works in an organised and thorough manner, a highly self-disciplined man.


    If you have any questions about how I might be able to help you, send me a quick message and I will get back to you as soon as I can.


    Could be about teaching, weddings, Rotary or Toastmasters...
