Tim O’Neill

Tim’s successful business background, his current role on the board of a funds management company and his leadership experience give him unique insight and wisdom that make him a much sought-after coach for Halftimers.

His strategic business planning skills, insight and analytical abilities have seen him build several highly successful businesses. He has also served in government and private enterprises, including not-for-profit organisations, helping them develop successful strategies and vision for growth.

He uses his experience skilfully to help high-achieving leaders work through mid-life issues. He does this by helping them identify their life’s purpose and then motivates them to develop and implement their plan around that purpose. Tim is an excellent teacher and regularly runs workshops for those in Halftime.

In 1995 the suicides of eight people within the community, led Tim and his wife, Sharon, to setting up a community church and the Tailrace Centre, a landmark entertainment and business centre on the banks of the Tamar River in Launceston. These facilities are positively impacting the local community and working in unison to help people find purpose and true fulfilment in their work and life.

Tim has previously been on the board of Willow Creek Australia for eight years and is also on the Advisory Board of Empart Australia. Empart is a dynamic organisation which is transforming communities in North India and Nepal by setting up communities, children’s homes, schools and tailoring centres for single women.

Tim lives in Launceston, Tasmania, with his wife and has three children.
