Tim Hopker-Blunt

Assistive Technology Trainer, Workplace Strategy Coach, Wellbeing Mentor

Tim’s life and work revolve around people: communicating, training and empathising. Having trained as a counsellor, worked as a call-centre customer adviser, and captained his university Ultimate Frisbee team, he certainly has experience in trying to understand and connect with people as well as leadership and instruction skills.

Working as a trainer for D&A offers him the dream role in which he can combine all three of these specialities; connecting with people on a daily basis, making the most of his patient and enthusiastic nature, and leading the way in holistic AT training. It’s no wonder Tim is so passionate about working for D&A.
