Meet the keynote speaker

Dr Tim Cooper AM
Managing Director, Coopers Brewery

Dr Tim Cooper AM is a fifth generation Cooper, with the unusual combination of qualifications in brewing and medicine. Tim completed medical studies (MBBS, Adelaide) in 1979 and practised hospital medicine for 7 years, working mainly in the UK as a registrar in medicine and cardiology. He decided to take time off medicine in 1986-87 to study brewing science (MSc, Birmingham), and was awarded the Sir William Waters Butler Award for top student.

He returned home to enter the family company in 1990, starting as Technical Manager, and becoming Operations Manager in 1993, responsible for brewing, packaging and engineering. He later completed his MBA and took on the responsibility as Project Director for the design and construction of the new brewery at Regency Park.

Tim is now Managing Director of Coopers Brewery, and sustains the workload of MD duties whilst still keeping a close eye on the brewing side of the business as Chief Brewer.
