Richard began his career in education, most notably as headmaster of the failing Grange Primary School. In just two years, he famously transformed it into one of the most acclaimed learning environments in the world; celebrated by UNESCO and the UK Government for its incredible turnaround.
Richard has since transitioned to the global stage where he uses his trademark humour and natural style to deliver passionate, provocative, and authentic speeches. He draws upon the first-hand experiences and unique insights garnered from frontline education, to explore the links between great leadership, human potential, change, and innovation.
His ability to connect experiences across many seemingly different environments helps people to expand their thinking and perception of potential. It is this authenticity and uniqueness which has helped Richard win him global acclaim and invitations to speak on the most recognised stages, including TED, the RSA and BBC radio.
