While working with Richard on a project for the RI, I was exposed to his depth of knowledge and experience in an exceptionally broad range of disciplines, and to his selfless commitment to issues and projects that he championed. Since then I have been looking for other opportunities to work with Richard again.
Dr Marc Fehlmann

Richard is an extremely astute strategic and financial adviser. He has been highly committed to the arts and their funding. We were most impressed with his ability to draw on his varied connections in multiple networks to consistently achieve excellent results. Richard is a highly cultivated and most charming individual and patron. I recommend him fully - without reservation
John Norton Esq

Richard who I have now worked with long enough to appreciate his talents brings enormous value to any activity which is fortunate enough to have his input. He is already involved with a considerable number of important health oriented institutions and groups. I know that anybody who is looking for a person dedicated to the interests of the individual patient would be wise to have Richard by their side.
Vice Admiral Sir Jeremy Blackham
Consultant to Airbus Helicopters and Airbus UK
I worked with Richard as a fellow Trustee at the RUSI for several years. I found him to be an excellent colleague, with very good judgement and insight as well as deep knowledge of the financial and governance issues involved in trusteeship. He is very clear and articulate and is prepared to take on difficult issues with both courage and common sense. I enjoyed working with him and respected and trusted him totally.
Programme Manager at National Voices
I worked with Richard while I was leading the Patient and Public Involvement Theme in a National Institute for Health Research funded project. I enjoyed working with him and Richard is a thoughtful and reflective person who brings personal and professional experience and insight to his roles. Richard is confident working with people from different backgrounds and is respectful and curious in his approach. He cares about the quality of healthcare and is interested in scientific developments. I'd be happy to work with him again!
