Richard’s advice, insight and approach was much appreciated and I now feel a little ‘lighter’ because of it. The session provided the space and direction to help me think about what I need to do aside from organisational going-ons which is exactly what I needed.

Richard was genuinely interested in understanding the work I do and how his expertise could help. He answered all of my questions about growing the business and gave me some new avenues I can now go away and explore which has made me feel a renewed excitement by the next year’s possibilities.

I really appreciated delving into the specifics of the issues we are facing as a business. It was great to receive challenge from someone who has a lot of experience and doesn’t share the same blind spots. Just one throwaway comment has left me thinking all night!

Richard quickly pinpointed my main challenge and suggested a different angle and alternative way of solving the problem. It was one I had previously dismissed as unlikely but in suggesting it he not only reminded me, but knew from personal experience it’s perfectly possible.
