Professional experience

Tim McEwan is a Fellow in Management Practice at Cambridge Judge Business School, supporting the School in the teaching of leadership, followership and strategic alignment.  

Having started his career in the British Army, most notably as a leadership instructor at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, Tim has a strong foundation in leadership and the unique ability to bring teaching from the military and academia into the commercial world. 

Following 10 years in the British Army, Tim moved into consultancy and then to an in-house role as Global Head of Leadership and Learning at international Fund Manager, Henderson Global Investors. He remains as special advisor to the Henderson’s Executive Committee and, with a number of friends, runs his own leadership coaching business.

 Over the course of his career Tim has worked in a variety of sectors from the public sector to financial services, and across international markets. He is passionate about traveling and experiencing other cultures, in particular in a business context, connecting people internationally and helping businesses to globalise. He also enjoys bringing together diverse groups of individuals from multiple disciplines across global businesses to promote mutual understanding and enhanced communication. 

Tim’s teaching approach is highly interactive. He facilitates challenging strategy discussions at the highest levels of business and advises on team dynamics, how to enhance leadership capability and empowering decision-making at all levels of business. He also speaks and moderates at conferences. 

In his spare time Tim is a keen ocean sailor, having competed in transatlantic races and a 1,200 mile, double-handed race from the Azores. He is married and lives just outside Cambridge with his family and numerous animals.

Tim collaborates with the School’s Executive Education function.
