Tim is a regular speaker for ActNow training, and has spoken at conferences organised by Centaur, Public Sector Forums, the Ark Group, UKEIG and Westminster Explained.
Tim Turner has a Masters of Law in Information Rights from Northumbria University, the ISEB Certificates in Data Protection and Freedom of Information, a Post-Graduate Diploma in Information and Library Studies, and a B.A. (Hons) in English from King's College (University of London).
Tim's career in Information Rights started at the Information Commissioner's Office as a Policy Manager on FOI issues, just after the 2000 FOI Act was passed. He worked with central and local government, wrote guidance and policies for the Commissioner and was a regular speaker at conferences and events.
Tim was DP & FOI Officer for two top-rated councils as well an Information Governance advisor for an NHS organisation.
Before working on Information Rights, Tim worked as a cataloguer and librarian for the North West Film Archive (part of Manchester Metropolitan University) and Stockport Council.
A friend suggested that the company should have been called Turner Information Training Services - an idea with one obvious flaw. Another possibility was to call it 3T (Tim Turner Training), but that seemed too close to a well-known technology magazine. Getting sued for trademark infringement didn't seem like an illustrious beginning. And so 2040 was born on a walk up a hill at Wasdale Head in the Lake District.
20 is the 20 working days that the FOI Act gives you to respond; 40 is the 40 days that the DP Act to respond to a subject access request. In this field, these are two crucial numbers.
2040 is a company registered in England: Company No: 6682698
