Redundant! Tim set up his own business in 2004 when he was made redundant and he will provide an hilarious but serious account of the trials and tribulations that followed. From no work to more work than he could do himself, trying to be in three places at once, the delegate who cried, the neighbours’ rabbit, inventing the company name, understanding technology and the mobile phone patch and encounters with HMRC and the VAT man. He will talk about the difference between the corporate world and his own one man band business in a very amusing and engaging presentation.
