People often ask me, ‘How did you come to be doing all these books and CDs and DVDs and TV shows? What path led you to your CEO and entrepreneurial coaching and coaching work?’ Well, let’s go back to the beginning.” This page is all about Tim Levy, right from the start.
A Brief History
I was born in Sydney, Australia in 1972. I had a wonderful childhood in Sydney’s north shore, attending Barker College, then the University of New South Wales. I pretty much lived inside the Apple //e my awesome parents bought me at the age of 9, and then studied computer science for my Bachelor of Computer Science. I was drawn to technology as the most creative tool around. Even then I was interested in writing books, recording albums, making film and television. At the same time I had an amazing executive education through my father and his social circle. He was, to my memory, always a managing director, CEO or manager of CEOs. He eventually ran the Australia arm of what is now Vistage International, arranging for me to begin speaking there at the tender age of 17.
The Next Chapter
Of course, things have changed pretty dramatically since then. I’ve moved across the world, several times. I’ve spoken on six continents. I’ve written a bunch of business books, children’s books and books about purpose and awakening.
