Consultancy

Richard has 20 years’ experience of successfully building organisations and social innovations, as well as developing fundraising, campaigning and communication strategies to drive change. He is also an experienced consultant and coach, and can offer services in a number of areas:

  • Organisational development – does your organisation lack strategic direction and need help to get it back on track?  Richard can help you to drive things forward – whether it’s via a quick review meeting, writing your development plan or providing ongoing strategic support to your organisation.

  • Political, campaigning and communications strategy – do you need to build your organisation’s influence, raise awareness or engage more support? Richard can help you build successful campaigning, political, communications, behaviour change and fundraising strategies, as he has done for a wide range of organisations, from CND to Humanists UK.

  • Innovation and project development – do you need someone to help you develop ideas for a new project or inject some creativity and inspiration into your work? Richard can help you innovate and get things done, having led creative development in an agency environment and built innovative solutions to social problems, from national organisations like Life Squared through to community initiatives like the Green Social.

  • Writing – do you need clear, insightful writing, on any topic? Richard has many years’ experience of producing a wide range of written output – from books on political issues to website copy and from accessible ‘how to’ guides through to strategic plans. See ‘Writing’ section for details.

  • Training and coaching – do you need workshops or coaching to help you get the best out of your team? Richard offers 1-1 coaching in work or personal contexts, for example, having recently helped a successful businessman to rediscover his direction in life.  He also runs workshops on a range of topics – from how to write good copy through to how to gain social change, and has done so for a range of organisations including New Economics Foundation, Electoral Reform Society and Cycling UK.

  • Making work better – could your organisation be more enlightened? A better place to work? Driven more by its values? In addition to offering traditional strategic consultancy, Richard can help you transform your organisation into a force for good – from reviewing its values through to improving its HR policies. Through Life Squared, he has helped thousands of people to gain better, more enlightened lives in the modern world and he can help your organisation to be better too.

Richard takes care to deliver his services in a way that enables the client to get the best out of them – so a one-to-one coaching session may be delivered on a walk in the country, or a workshop may be delivered around a campfire outside – whatever helps you get the best results together!
