Feedback about Richard

 

“Richard has huge experience in both supporting and challenging parents in a number of different environments. Rich recently delivered at an England U18 performance camp and it went down extremely well. His engaging and interactive style helps share information and ideas on how parents can best support their children. He would add value to any environment that involved young people.”

John Fletcher

Former England 18 Rugby manager, RFU

“The engagement and support of parents is becoming an increasingly important topic for national governing bodies of sport. Richard is not only a subject-area expert, but possess a rare skillset to captivate a large audience. During a recent session with 60 regional Under 15s parents he employed innovative approaches to promote engagement, and crucially land key messages.”

Alun Powell

National Talent Manager , England & Wales Cricket Board

“Richard delivered entertaining and powerful presentations to our staff and parents. The messages were hugely valuable as we strive to establish a positive, supportive culture around our sports provision. Without question our most successful ever parent talk.”

J Morgan-Hughes

Director of Sport , Millfield Prep.

“As a parent of 12yr old son who is mad keen on cricket, but also in my role as Director of Cricket, Richard’s presentation on the Non-Perfect Dad was enlightening and truly fascinating.A dad himself, he was very honest and realistic about his own parental challenges. His delivery ensured he kept everyone engaged and I observed genuine interest and debate from parents.His key message really hit home to me and subsequently I’ve used it with my son, players and coaches to ensure I best support them to fulfil their potential.I left Richard’s presentation, excited and feeling more informed to deal with some of the challenges I face as a Dad “

Andy Hurry

Director of Cricket , Somerset Country CC

‘I have worked with Richard on several projects over the years and he has excellent skills in engaging with children and families and making a real difference in their lives. He is particularly good at helping parents sort out parenting issues, children’s behaviour and problems, and family relationships.’

Sue West

Independent Social Worker and Tutor

“Bringing in Non Perfect Dad to share his wisdom and knowledge, intertwining key message from the Talent Development Framework was thought provoking and engaging in equal measure. The quality of the experience is confirmed by the significant number of positive comments and messages received. #EndInMind”

Dieter Hill

Junior Talent Development Manager, England Hockey

“Richard spoke at our recent Parent Seminar on ‘Supporting your Child in Sport’ evening.  He provided an entertaining but thought-provoking and supportive insight into the values we hold and how we communicate them to our children. It was a unique evening that was packed with great ‘take-away’ conversation starters, activities that brought every day scenarios to life and showed a deep understanding of the pressures of being a parent of a sportsplayer. His messages and challenges to parents were immediately visible and audible on the side-lines the very next day!”

Alasdair Kennedy

Headteacher, Trinity School, Croydon

“We have used Richard across the academy pathway. He has been excellent in engaging with our parents from U15s up to the U18s. as a governing body, I think there are always difficulties in humanising your programmes. Richard has provided a very personal, rounded and engaging route to bring the parents of these young people on their journey. He also helps provide some check and balance to make sure that we are reviewing ourselves in line with good practice… we know the parents are key to these young people!”  

Don Barell

Head of Regional Academies, RFU

‘I had the privilege of facilitating a number of parenting programmes with Richard. He has an infectious energy and passion for his work and I was always amazed by his creativity and willingness to go the extra mile to support parents. Not only that but Richard lives and breathes what he teaches with his own children, giving them a strong and stable foundation and the best possible start in life. I couldn’t recommend Richard highly enough.’
