As outsiders, Tim & Tuesday have the advantage - the clarity and calm - of not being entrenched. When overwhelmed by repeated patterns and blocks, fresh air helps. We don't tell you what to do. We help organize for progress. By bringing fresh air and clarity to persistent challenges, we can transcend overwhelm to make a better world together. That's what we do: We help collaborators and problem-solvers get unstuck with unforgettably pivotal events, capacity-building, and strategy that sparks significant change and moves toward equity.
