Tim Wilson OBE is CEO of MSI Global Alliance, a 30-year-old association of 260 independent law & accounting firms in over 100 countries. He leads a small team based in London which facilitates networking opportunities worldwide for MSI’s members.
Before becoming CEO of MSI, Tim worked in the charity sector. Before that was an Army officer serving on several operations worldwide, receiving an OBE for leadership in Iraq.
He is married with 3 children and is a keen sportsman; he bob-sleighed & played rugby & polo in his youth & now cycles & runs.
Inspired by being Military Assistant to General Sir Sam Cowan Royal Signals - an original thinker, unorthodox, not afraid to challenge status quo and change the culture. A legend. Worked for General Sir Mike Jackson in UK Division deployed to Bosnia. Huge moral courage dealing with warring parties. Fun to work for & gave huge commitment for him. Gave appreciation & congratulations. CO of Queens’s Dragoon Guards QDG - cavalry Regiment in Iraq.
Learning from Mistakes - On reflection he could have been less directive & controlling (C2) - to have “Let Go” more & empowered rather than mistrust. C2 vs Environmental Control to help Leaders flourish & grow. Be more collegiate. Beware the Bullies. Now Tim needs to influence firms globally without having power over them.
Top Tip - Collaboration & “socialise an idea” to get buy-in. Then frame vision, explain, check ongoing buy-in. Innovate & challenge status quo.
