Hi, I’m Tim Nash
I like to scare people at conferences

I talk (a lot) about WordPress and security as well as subjects like performance and system administration at events and even occasionally on my blog

I am a WordPress security consultant who helps agencies and business owners to secure and scale their websites and processes.

We took an enormous amount of value from the short session and can highly recommend Tim's expertise and approach.

Tim Talks a lot at conferences and at smaller user groups


While normally focusing on WordPress and Security, his topics have been pretty varied, from testing methodologies through to robbing banks. His talks tend to be entertaining and informative. His goal is to make things accessible but also to make it easy for people to research.

“I hired Tim to do an audit on one of our most popular plugins, not only was this one of the best business decisions I have made. It was an invaluable experience and one I would highly recommend to any other plugin/theme developers. The takeaways from this have been super beneficial to my business (both in coding and business) and I now have the confidence to grow and take it to the next level!”

“Our team have built countless WooCommerce sites but this was our first foray into releasing a product and we wanted to be sure on the code quality, scalability and security of our code. Tim was thorough, detailed and exceptional at walking us through the issues in our code. For me what was more important though, was that he did so in a very kind and insightful way that motivated the team, improved the plugin but also helped us implement tools and processes into our workflow that has benefitted us across the board in all work we do. I could not recommend this service more highly and I wish we'd done it sooner!”
