Rick is interested in helping people to help themselves – working creatively and pragmatically with their challenges and opportunities. He has supported individuals and senior management teams in both the business and public sectors. This includes SMEs, charities and social enterprises.
In the face of the ‘certainty of uncertainty’, Rick helps individuals, teams, and organisations to work with ongoing change. This includes, for example, balancing risk with safety – while recognising the different beliefs, expectations and contexts that influence us and our work.
As an international coach and facilitator Rick has worked for over 15 years supporting individual development, strategic realignments, restructuring initiatives, team and department development, system and process improvements, and key relationship management – all in the context of our fast-changing, complex, paradoxical and interdependent world.
Previously, in the commercial sector Rick has over 25 years of international experience in management and senior management (large corporates to SMEs). Over the years he has been involved in Sales and Marketing (customer development and B2B marketing), Systems (business systems design, implementation and management) and Operations (primarily project management).
In the non-profit sector Rick was the part-time Director of a small international UK charity for three years. This role demanded a pragmatic approach for successfully maintaining an ongoing, sustainable cash flow while continuing the charitable work. He also co-founded the charity Working in Trust. This work focused on developing the essential nature of trust with, and within, organisations.
Rick is an Associate of the Oasis School of Human Relations, a member of the Oasis Community of Practice in Organisational Development, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, Manufacturing and Science (RSA).
