Speaker Biographies

James Timpson OBE has been Timpson Chief Executive since 2002 after taking over the role from Sir John Timpson.  Timpson has over 1,750 branches nationwide. Working closely with the prison service, Timpson’s are able to identify potential candidates within prisons who have the right kind of personality to make it on release working within the business. It’s a closely managed process from selection, training and mentoring up to release, with the opportunity to secure employment with the company from walking out the gates. 10% of Timpson colleagues were recruited directly from prison.

Away from Timpson, in his role as Chair of the Prison Reform Trust, James uses his considerable experience to steer this charity. The Trust has a strong track record of driving changes in policy and practice.  The Prison Reform Trust (PRT) is an independent UK charity working to create a just, humane and effective penal system.  The Prison Reform Trust’s main objectives are:

  • reducing unnecessary imprisonment and promoting community solutions to crime
  • improving treatment and conditions for prisoners and their families
  • promoting equality and human rights in the justice system.
