Hi, I’m Faith, Founder and Managing Director of Timbs and Co: Change Design.

When I started my working life as a Stage Manager, calling cues in theatres around the world, I had no idea how relevant managing big egos, high stakes and even higher expectations would be for my future career in Change.

I learned the ups and down of the Change Management discipline while navigating the worlds of education, government, heavy industry and not for profits, and working on transformative change across multinational, multidisciplinary teams.

I’ve seen the challenges leaders face when they can’t make sense of the responses to change around them, and they are being schooled to treat every response as ‘resistance’.

I’ve watched businesses struggle, stuck inside change frameworks that make no room for creativity, flexibility or humanity.

What I learned was that my own curious questions, experiments with diverse toolkits and work with leaders delivered results. Great results where people in all parts of the business could express their responses to change, and leaders felt confident to take daring actions to lead the change. Where the changing didn’t comply with a framework, but moved freely, and in response to human need and sensemaking. 

I created a business where those methods could be shared with clients who know it’s time to stop managing change and start designing changing experiences.

I’m passionate about working with leaders, change practitioners and business owners who want to take a fresh look at changing. 

Adapt and thrive in change with us.

I look forward to working with you.

The Timbs and Co Difference

Many organisations share their company values, and it can be a struggle to reflect them in the way they operate.


At Timbs and Co, we’ve been inspired to build our operations around the things we know to be true, today.


These are the principles and beliefs that drive us to make decisions about how we work with our clients, conduct our operations, and show up as practitioners in the world.

What we know to be true, right now:

  1. Our choices aim to secure a world of beauty, safety, and health for future generations

  2. We look to make work fun, fulfilling and exciting

  3. Change is the universal constant, and should offer opportunity for all

  4. We do not see things as they are - we see them as we are

  5. There is no such thing as THE truth, only perspectives

  6. We look for the best in others and expect it of ourselves

  7. Play is for productivity

  8. It's always right to do the next right thing

  9. We must ask, to receive

  10. Happiness is in the progress, not the perfection

These ten statements help us make decisions on everything from our use of sustainable products in our offices, to our business and banking partners, and advice to clients on their change needs and design.


We live and breathe what we know to be true about change, play, progress, perfection and truth and when you work with Timbs and Co practitioners you can expect to see these principles and beliefs in action and working for you.
