Tim Smit

Chief Executive and Co-founder of the Eden Project

“Storytelling is everything. If you can create a narrative that people want to be part of you can do almost anything.”

Tim is Chief Executive and co-founder of the Eden Project.

Eden began as a dream in 1995 and opened its doors in 2000, since then more than 12 million people have come to see what was once a sterile pit turned into a cradle of life containing world-class horticulture and startling architecture symbolic of human endeavour.

Since its launch, Eden has contributed £1.9 billion to the Cornish economy and is proud of its success in its mission to change peoples perceptions of the application of science through art, drama and storytelling.

Tim has taken part in many television and radio programmes and has been the subject of ‘This is Your Life’ and a guest on ‘Desert Island Discs’. He is a regular speaker at conferences, dinners, Awards Ceremonies and other events and is the author of books about The Lost Gardens of Heligan (voted 'Book of the Year' in 1997 by the Sunday Times) and the Eden Project.
