SPEAKER:  Tim Moorey, a professional crossword setter will tell us about  the life and achievements of The Amazing Dr Johnson, who, despite huge personal difficulties, gave the nation its first authentic  dictionary. After recent research, the talk is now able also to cover the fascinating life of Samuel's former Jamaican slave, Francis Barber. It will be illustrated with examples, often humorous, from the dictionary

A Man of Kent and former Sevenoaks resident, Tim’s lifelong love of words has led him to a career of cryptic crossword setting, currently for Moneyweek, The Week, Sunday Times and The Times. His previous careers were with BP (with whom he qualified at Birmingham University as a Chartered Management Accountant), finishing as a finance director in several BP subsidiaries; and the Civil Service (with whom he lectured in business planning and finance at the National School of Government), finally as a business consultant within the Cabinet Office.  He is now a consultant for Chambers Crossword dictionary, author of two crossword-related books for HarperCollins and runs cryptic crossword solving workshops around the country for The Times and Marlborough College. Tim belongs to the Johnson Society of London and is an ambassador for the London Symphony Orchestra, classical music being his other passion.
