Profusion is a data science consultancy based in London’s Tech City. The business was at a very transitional stage and Richard was instrumental in helping me shape my leadership role as well as the direction of the team during this pivotal time. His coaching approach was friendly and open but also challenging. He helped me to develop my leadership style and confidently develop a clear and practical vision for my team.
Yariella Coello, former Head of Consultancy, Profusion
Our regular meetings with Richard have been invaluable over the past year. He is super friendly, knowledgable and takes a genuine interest in our company. We’ve discussed overall growth strategy for the business, organisational design and how to build, manage and lead a team. Richard’s approach is refreshing because rather than telling us what to do, he guides us to our own conclusions. We are excited to continue to work with him.

Developing the confidence of fashion businesses to move beyond creativity and think and act with strategic commercial foresight can be challenging. Richard combines his consulting and coaching experience to great effect, helping businesses gain insight whilst, at the same time, identify their own way forward.
Judith Tolley, Head of Centre for Fashion Enterprise
Richard has been involved with the MBA since it began 4 years ago. He has really helped to shape the Consulting Project Unit, both in terms of content and delivery. His deep consulting expertise is a real asset to the course, as is the coach-approach supervision that he provides to the students that he works with, guiding them through their emotional 6 month projects! We love working with Richard, and he loves working with us!
James Clarke, Course Director, Executive MBA Fashion, London College of Fashion
Richard lectured on the Consulting Unit for my MBA at the London College of Fashion and Supervised me through my consultancy project. He helped me to shape my paper and subsequently refine my thinking. This enabled me to answer the ” So What?” question and reach reasoned recommendations. I would highly recommend Richard to my fellow students and business peers as he is able to combine consultancy thinking with coaching and mentoring skills.
