Richard helped me think through the direction for 3DV in the short to medium term, and what the big picture beyond that might look like. Asking thoughtful, and sometimes uncomfortable questions, we then worked backwards and unpicked what I needed to do right now to get the business in the best possible place for future growth. Having Richard in the room to open up and guide me through this thinking was incredibly valuable.
Richard Mayson, Co-Founder, 3D Verdict
I worked with Richard in my role as Head of the Consultancy team at Profusion, 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; it helped me to not only develop my management style but also to confidently develop a clear and practical vision for the team.

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.
