Richard is a seasoned and accomplished recruiter with an excellent management track record. That background has given him the knowledge and ability to deliver excellent content in a way that kept my staff engaged, entertained and informed.
We’ve undertaken two workshops with Richard around growth, value proposition and talent. Both were excellent, insightful and thought provoking. Richard has a wealth of experience and a coaching rather than telling style. We came away with some great ideas and strategies and will definitely be engaging Richard again.
Richard joined as a strategic hire into our global management team. His value add around developing staff, scaling businesses, and experience of building teams profitably has been immeasurable. Richard’s mandate is to scale our business to the very top of the market from a performance, market share, reputation and culture point of view. We have exceptional plans for our offices in APAC and Richard’s skills & personality will be key to steering a highly talented management team to new heights.
Working with Richard for 3 years he led most of the company’s’ training, coaching and mentoring from new joiners through to the Senior Leadership team below him. Richard is a powerful public speaker with the ability to engage and motivate at all levels across the sales floor, key strengths being his ability to identify and hone in on individual development needs and ultimately improve team cohesion.
Richard is an energetic, determined and passionate member of our senior leadership team in Singapore. He is particularly adept at motivating and inspiring individuals to push beyond what they think they are capable of. He is also an exceptional presenter, has an eye for detail and displays a polished and professional work ethic.
In an age where true coaching and mentoring is far more impactful than traditional training techniques, Richard has a point of uniqueness where other training and leadership consulting companies often fall short. Since working with Richard I have incorporated many of his ideas and principles into the daily management of my business and workforce. With only positive outcomes. Richard didn’t always offer me the answers I sought but encouraged me to consider new ideas, new methods or an alternative perspective that enabled me to find the answers based on my own individual needs. A far more valuable and enriching approach.
Cobalt engaged Richard to construct two brand new training programmes; a senior management programme and a recruiter/consulting programme. Richard listened and adapted his training to our business needs and furthermore changed his style and approach as he got know our team better. I have been extremely impressed with both the feedback from the team and also the improvements Richard has helped make.I would highly recommend Richard to any recruitment firm small or large, looking for personalized and highly effective external training partner.
In terms of specific recruitment training, there is only one company I’d use Connector Talent Solutions, they have delivered team training and a leadership program with more to come. The Connector programs have had instant results we have seen a rise in confidence and an increase in productivity and success.Richard’s style and approach to training and indeed his recruitment beliefs are perfectly aligned with UA and our culture and values through to how we tackle candidates and clients, Whats more he’s a cracking bloke to work with and makes training allot of fun.
