An honorary life fellow of Gresham College, Professor Tim Connell is an Emeritus Foundation professor from City University, where he sat on Senate for many years. He is a graduate of Oxford, Liverpool and London universities, and has studied in Spain and Mexico. He also holds the degree of Doctor of Letters from City, University of London.

His particular interest is in the field of professional training for translators and interpreters, where he works closely with the Chartered Institute of Linguists, of which he is a Fellow and a Vice-President, and is a regular contributor to the professional journal The Linguist. He is a member of the All Party Parliamentary Languages Group, which he addresses with some regularity.

International education is another area of key concern. Tim is deputy chair of the international course board for ESCP Europe, (the French grande école based in Paris) which also covers London, Berlin, Madrid and Turin. He has had professional links with Latin America for many years, which has provided ample material for his classes on cultural communication and awareness.

He writes and broadcasts regularly on a wide range of themes relating to London, languages in the modern world and diverse cultural topics. He sits on an editorial board for Cambridge Scholars Publishing and has dealings with various publishers. In the past three years he has published chapters on livery companies in the City of London, languages and Brexit and was the lead writer for Get Smart About Scandals, a report on past lessons for future finance. He has just completed a revision of the history of Canning House, home to the Luso-Hispanic Brazilian Society, with which he has had an association for nearly forty years.

Tim has developed particular links in the Square Mile as a Freeman of the City of London and sits on the Court of the Stationers' Company where he is currently developing a policy on public access as part of the new Hall charity.

As a Fellow of Gresham College he sits on the Academic Board and has organised cycles of lectures in the Mondays at One series for 24 years, looking at topics of mainly current interest and speaks on a variety of subjects himself.  He has devised half-day symposia on a wide range of themes with an invited panel of experts and is currently looking at the development of webinars. Since 2006 he has been Chairman of the Gresham Society, which supports Gresham College.
