My name is Tim Cudmore and I am a Disability and Trauma Expert Consultant and Speaker.
Having lived with a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) and SCI (Spinal Cord Injury) for over 23 years, I specialise in translating and explaining the unique realities of those living with long term disability, and how best to support those who have experienced extreme physical, psychological and emotional trauma.
There is no illusion here. No Hollywood magic or Trick photography. You will hear the stories and the lived experiences of a man who scratched, fought and bled for every inch he has. I've seen the world from a perspective like few others. From broken bones and to a broken heart; I've seen, heard and tried it all. Nothing surprises me and I love a challenge. Ask me anything.

I believe there is real value in discussing the honest and sometimes brutal realities of living with impairment and PTSD. No one gets ahead by pretending that life is easy and without challenge. I believe that through mutual respect, personal responsibility and perseverance we can all create meaningful and lasting change for good.
Nothing about us, without us! We must not be afraid to share our stories, and more importantly our vulnerabilities with the world. Only be giving each and every person the chance to be heard, can we learn how to better the system for all involved.
Whether it be to Inspire, Motivate or Educate, I can be the voice you need. From gruesome war stories to funny anecdotes; I have a encyclopedia of knowledge to share to any audience.
