As an experienced brand strategist Richard has pursued a passion for helping companies in the public, private and third sector to promote their brand reputation and CSR activity. Richard founded Ecobrand in 2011 which specialises in brand reputation and helps organisations promote their CSR and sustainability efforts as an integral part of their brand personality. To compliment this he also runs the International CSR Excellence Awards. This eventually led to the development and launch of CSR-A in 2018, which provides the UK's only National Social Responsibility Accreditation Scheme. Since then CSR-A has developed CSR Training and Workshops, Social Impact Reporting and a CSR programme for primary and secondary schools.
He is president for the Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce ‘Bucks’ Council, a member of the Society of Leadership Fellows and a Trustee for the Heart of Bucks – Community Foundation.
