The Founder

Gareth Timmins

Gareth Timmins is a former Royal Marines Commando, emerging behavioural/cognitive scientist turned published author of: Becoming the 0.1%: Thirty-four Lessons from the Diary of a Royal Marines Commando Recruit.

In 2019, Gareth founded Nought Point One – an emerging performance clothing brand that predominantly focuses on functional and high-intensity activewear – inspired by the operational requirements of the Royal Marines.

Becoming the 0.1%

While undertaking the thirty-four weeks of Commando training in 2005/06, at the tender age of twenty years old, he documented his experiences by keeping a never-before captured diary of elite military training. Within his debut book, Gareth utilised his academic grounding to produce and integrate thirty-four unique psychological lessons that people can utilise to achieve cutting-edge, performance thinking and develop an elite mindset.


Having previously completed a BSc (Hons) in Forensic Psychology, Gareth is currently exploring PhD Research with the University of Surrey. While preparing the premise for book 3, Gareth is investigating how to ‘Gauge Atmospherics’ in our environment, life-threatening situations, and the link between Rapid Decision-making under pressure and the application of effectiveness in Corporate Environments.

Through the usage and lens of Augmented Reality (AR), he plans to simulate hostile situations in controlled settings to see if we can elicit such phenomena within corporate environments, to facilitate better decision-making practices and thus contribute to corporate innovation.

Public Speaking

Drawing on his own experiences and expertise in the field, Gareth delivers inspiring and thought-provoking talks that leave audiences feeling motivated and empowered. He connects with his listeners on a personal level, delivering practical advice and strategies that can be applied in both personal and professional contexts.
