"Dulux Australia has engaged with Tim Ross on a number of occasions. A key area of focus for Dulux is finding new and innovative ways to engage with architects and designers. Tim has a great blend of architectural knowledge and insight which brings with it a much sort after credibility with this audience. This added to his well known comedic skills has allowed us to utilise him in a variety of Dulux event based roles: whether that be straightforward comedic performance to more complex facilitation, hosting and compering. We consider Tim a trusted friend within the architectural community."
