Richard believes that running a business can be a lonely affair. “It can feel like there is no-one to talk to and bounce ideas off. Sometimes it can feel that the business is running you and not the other way round.”
He declares that what gets him out of bed every morning is a desire to help busy business owners gain some headspace from the day to day tasks, take stock of where they are, understand what motivates them and identify their business visions. Sharing some of his valuable experiences, he works alongside the owners and directors developing and implementing strategic plans for the growth and development of the business.
Richard is a keen advocate of playing to strengths and a strong believer that businesses are only as good as the people in them. As such he feels that engagement is key, empowering people to deliver by creating a strong sense of purpose, a sense of urgency and aligning everyone with the strategic goals.
Richard has spent over 15 years leading strategic change within businesses ranging from a £3m turnover family-run leisure business to a £2bn utility giant. “I have been fortunate enough to be given opportunities to lead on strategy, business planning and business development, often starting from a completely blank sheet to devise strategies for entering new markets or challenging existing ones.”
Richard has worked alongside more than 60 businesses from retail to public health offering advice to start-ups, support for growth and guidance on sales of companies. He was recognized as one of Britain’s top 50 business advisers by Central Government and Enterprise Nation.
