Richard has been a Primary Head and Executive Head for 25 years in a range of inner city schools across the country. During his time as a Head, he was seconded to be Education Executive for HSBC Global Education Trust and then moved to be Head of Primary for the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust.
Throughout this period, he designed and delivered national leadership programmes for the National College of School Leadership and supported leadership development in the USA, Australia, China, Pakistan and many countries in Europe.

He feels that his strength is in empowering and mentoring others and in giving confidence and belief to leaders to lead and teachers to teach.
