Tim Whiting


Publisher, Piatkus Constable RobinsoN, Little, Brown Book Group



Based in London, Tim is the publisher of four imprints of the Little, Brown Book Group—Piatkus, Constable, Robinson, and Abacus Non-Fiction. Best known for his non-fiction commissioning, he has published books such as The Undercover Economist by Tim Harford, The Silo Effect by Gillian Tett, Edge of Chaos by Dambisa Moyo, and the global bestsellers Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson and Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff.

With the number of independent book stores in the U.K. growing again after many years of decline, it is a good moment for the U.K. book industry. Tim considers this as a sign of things to come and feels bullish about the future of books. At the House of Beautiful Business, he will present this own vision for his industry, and he may host the occasional reading in one of our Gallery House’s 26 guest rooms.
