Richard runs people make it work, and helps direct programmes and support his team as they work with his clients. He loves helping leaders understand their amazing strengths as well as the areas that will benefit from some attention and development. He really enjoys helping organisations and their leaders to explore and develop their ideas, expanding their sense of what is possible and turning audacious ideas into real, sold cultural businesses that are resilient and create extraordinary impact in our society. He believes in people make it work, and the ethos that we all embody – that human beings have infinite potential, that each of us is always on a development journey, that connecting with our values and our organisations’ mission can release huge amounts of energy, that organisations thrive when they tend relationships, support each other and grow positive cultures. He fervently believes in the power of arts and culture to transform lives through helping each of us understand the world through other peoples eyes, connect with our wider humanity, see opportunities beyond our direct experience and have sublime experiences.
