Richard qualified as a coach in 2001 to complement his roles as an experienced business mentor and training facilitator. He works mainly with executive, senior management, and team leaders, helping them enhance their effectiveness in their role and prepare for future challenges and opportunities.
He is often described as practical, proactive, wise, and warm. When clients partner with Richard they have the feeling of being listened to, of considering new options, of being challenged and inspired to act.
Richard is a credentialed coach and member of the International Coach Federation. He holds a Bachelors degree in Economics and is a Master NLP Practitioner (NLP is the study and modelling of excellence).
He is regarded for his breadth and depth of business knowledge gained throughout his career as a business adviser. Prior to creating The Learning Corporation LLP in 1993 he had a successful career with PriceWaterhouse Coopers and KPMG. He has extensive experience of SMEs as well as working internationally in over 20 countries including China, Taiwan, India, Middle East, Africa and throughout Europe.

His first book ‘Creating a Purposeful Life-How to reclaim your life, live more meaningfully and befriend time’ was published in June 2012.
He has recently completed another book for publication in June 2020 ‘Making Relationships Work at Work – a toolkit for getting more done with less stress’. As far as he is aware this is the only book that covers the A-Z of building great working relationships.
Apart from the enjoyment gained in his work, he has a keen interest in trekking, choral music, travel, sport, reading, socialising and as a member of his local church. Please contact Richard at firstname.lastname@example.org
