This is the website of the British journalist, Tim Dawson. I am the author of several books, write regularly for national newspapers and magazines and produce audio visual packages for a variety of organisations. For twenty years, I wrote weekly for The Sunday Times and was a section editor on that paper for over a decade. I am always looking for new outlets for my work.
I also undertake work as a photographer, trainer, speaker, conference chair and facilitator, a PR, a copywriter, and an event and project manager.
I have been a member of the executive of the National Union of Journalists since the late 1990s and served as the union's president between 2016 and 2018. I currently convene the International Federation of Journalists expert group on the surveillance of journalists. I write about NUJ-related matters here. In this capacity, I regularly speak at major public events including recent meetings at the Palace of Westminster, the European Parliament and the Trades Union Congress.
