Since opening in November 2020 we have worked with some amazing businesses that have been kind enough to share a few words about Richer Solutions
Richard It has been great to get your perspective on all of this. It has been very rewarding to have conversations with someone who is as committed and passionate as we are. I have personally found the sessions really useful and hopefully we now have a few more tips to help us get the project moving.
“I’ve recently benefited from two very enjoyable sessions with Richard, discussing my business and my goals. During the course of our structured but free-flowing discussions, he provided me with several reminders and insights. The reminders included why I work in the film industry, the importance of mission statements, and how my passion for film can drive the business forward. His insights included highlighting a second group of customers when I thought I only had one group, the crossover of sales & marketing, and the importance of my role in connecting people. All of this valuable advise was made enjoyable by our mutual interest in film & cinema.
I would highly recommend Richard for helping companies re-evaluate their core business and goals”. https://pocketfilms.com
"We have thoroughly enjoyed our time working with Richard, as our mentor. He has been motivating and insightful and we have been able to build specific brand platforms with exciting propositions. We have definitely moved forwards in the development of our product. In addition, we are looking to collaborate with a couple of the other product providers that Richard has supported to share expertise and experience. "
"Richard really does have lots of experience in both sales and marketing and was very helpful in putting a strategy together, which will help my business grow. Richard also has specialist knowledge in the area of luxury, which relates to the area I work within. It was great to have one to one mentoring in this area at a time when we are coming out of the lockdowns.” https://www.farahqureshi.co.uk/
“Over the past few months I have worked with Richard in a mentor capacity and I can highly recommend his skills and services.
Richard brings energy, understanding, and a consultative approach that is grounded and helpful. His advice and encouragement have helped Mereworth Wines as we prepare for the post Covid19 world and his marketing and strategic knowledge is always welcome.”
“Since developing our ideas over the last year but without having any marketing background ourselves, we got a lot of value from exploring our core purpose and implementable ideas during Richard’s marketing mentoring sessions. We also got good validation on where we were on the right track. A really valuable use of our time in our startup journey.”
Well, Where do I start? We haven’t just found a mentor, we found an inspiring individual who helps you develop, grow, think out side of the box while bringing the all-important clarity to your mind and decisions when starting a new business. Richard has connected us with brilliant contacts and re-focused us on our over all aims. Call Richard now, I promise, you won’t regret it.
Richard helped me to create a new sales and marketing strategy. Although I've been in marketing for 12 years myself I found his insights extremely helpful, with tips that covered all areas of my business.
He's relaxed, engaging and is always focused on the end result and I left with a notebook full of new ideas and plans for the future. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to grow their business. Thanks again!
‘I am extremely grateful to have worked with Richard to develop a community events and business directory.
I feel he went above and beyond to gain an understanding of my business, alongside my future hopes for the development. His coaching has provided me with invaluable advice, which I feel has put me in a stronger position going forward with the business strategy. His guidance has made such a positive impact on my mindset and confidence, especially in regards to approaching sales, and I highly appreciate and recommend Richards expertise.’
Working with Richard as my mentor has been amazing. At our very first meeting, he put me at ease and I instantly felt comfortable in his company. Starting my new business has been extremely daunting and overwhelming but with Richards guidance, I have not only grown my business in a way I never thought I would but he gave me ongoing encouragement and also tools to take away ensuring I would always feel confident with all business decisions I make and I will always be truly grateful for that. I wish Richard all the best and success with his company and look forward to working with him again soon.
Thanks so much Richard for our very inspiring sessions 😊. You have pushed us both to be ambitious in our idea and brought some cracking ideas to the table! Very much appreciated
Richard was professional and great to work with one to one for coaching/business advice. He had great ideas and listened carefully and we got stuck into things straight away so all the sessions were productive and created momentum. He brought his life experience to the sessions and also made a comprehensive plan on Powerpoint so I could take away a clear reference and key points for future targets/actions. Made a big difference in a short amount of time from day one.’ https://toastmastertejaskotecha.co.uk/
Amazing, considerate, individualised approach to mentoring. Richard really gets to know you and your business, so the solutions he provides are appropriate and valuable. Friendly, engaging and funny... I thought I would struggle to find the time in my week to have a session with Richard, however I actually looked forward to it, it kept me on track and was a necessity! Thank you!
Richard was great to work with. He took the time to really get to know us, how we worked and what we were trying to achieve before providing useful and actionable advice. Our sessions with him really helped to focus us and our thinking on how we wanted to move forward and what sort of business we wanted to be.’ https://www.sandwichguildhallmuseum.co.uk
When I started working with Richard I had a basic concept for a business: guided running tours in my home city. What I lacked was an idea of the value of the proposition or how to effectively take it to market. Richard helped me to realise both areas.During our first meeting, I was impressed by how quickly he understood what the business was about, but also at how – by the end of session one - we were able to build a clear action plan to take the business forward. Richard drew on his marketing experience to identify the platform and key stories that the business embodied. He set out very clear steps to follow: developing a website; fostering local partnerships; raising our digital presence.In just three meetings we achieved more than I could’ve hoped. He is engaging, witty, insightful, and supportive and is genuinely invested in helping his clients succeed. The most important takeaway for me was how Richard helped me to understand my role in the business, what I bring to it, and how the business could be transformational for clients. I left our meetings full of energy, enthusiasm and excitement about the journey ahead. https://www.canterburyrunningtours.com/
I had 3 marketing sessions with Richard online. I found the sessions beneficial for my business because it enabled me to focus my attention on capturing our audience and reaching new audiences. It made me create a plan for implementing these outcomes. On top of this Richard came out with some really amazing ideas that I wouldn't have thought about on my own, and which I will definately be researching and putting into practise.https://margatenow.co.uk/
