About Tim


Tim Kenworthy is the Founder and Childlike Enthusiasm Officer [CEO] of Useful Inc. Useful's mission is to make doing good as mainstream as cheeseburgers and breathing. It's flagship project is called Big Help Mob. It's like a flash mob but useful. Big Help Mob is known for doing things like getting 100 people together and planting 4000 trees in 2 hours, or helping 12 old ladies do their gardening simultaneously.

Tim does not have a personal mission statement but if someone forced one out of him, he hopes it would include the words “creativity” and “love”.

Tim does not have a five-year plan and does not want one. He considers himself incredibly fortunate to live in Fremantle, Western Australia and likes it when people are nice to each other.
