Richard's Speaking Experience
44 Years specialisation in Project Management
Over the last three decades, organisations have spent huge amounts of time and money on all sorts of Project Management tools and techniques, project control methods, development and management lifecycles and Project Management training.
More people are being assigned to manage projects and increased time and effort is being spent on management disciplines. Why then is the project failure rate about the same as it was 30 years ago? What delivers Project Success?
Building on his over 30 years of experience with some of the most visible projects during that time, Richard will show that to achieve Project Success you have to combine hard skills, soft skills, attitudes, behaviours and 'success habits'. This 2-day MasterClass focuses on helping you to put all of these together to manage projects in a different way.
Richard can turn this Project Management MasterClass into a Keynote address for your next management meeting or conference. Just Ask!
True leadership is based on a number of specific characteristics which all truly great leaders possess. These include things such as a high standard of personal ethics, high energy, courage, the ability to make tough decisions, an urge to create and to innovate along with many other characteristics. However, the most important one is the desire to help others succeed. A true leader is a sevant to his or her people.
Leadership is an art not a science. An effective leader in comparison to a short-term motivator has a lot to do with decisions as to how they lead their lives over the long term in relation to the various leadership characteristics. Explore the leadership characteristics with this speaker and work with him to become a person that people 'want' to work with rather than someone who people 'have' to work with.
Richard is a firm believer that success in any endeavour is a combination of both 'Hard Skills' and 'Soft Skills' with 'Soft Skills' being the greater part of the success equation. In addition, managing the achievement of anything is based on about a half-dozen habits that truly great managers have developed throughout their career. These success habits can be learned through trial and error over a long period of time or they can be obtained through keying into the experience of highly successful managers.
Richard has studied and practiced successful management over almost 4 decades and has identified what he believes are the 'Hard Skills', the 'Soft Skills' and the Habits that must be practiced by managers to succeed. If you are interested in becoming a better manager than you are today, you need to hear what this man has to say.
Richard is an excellent speaker who has had the honor of speaking to thousands of people throughout the world. He is a member of the National Speakers Association (NSA) and on the board of the NSA/Carolinas Chapter.
He is a highly motivated, enthusiastic and energetic person who knows how to motivate his people to exhibit the same traits. Richard is a larger-than-life Project Manager that companies call when they have large, complex change projects to establish and implement, or when they have major problems with their existing projects.
His experience ranges from the dizzy heights of putting a man on the moon as part of the Apollo Program Team, to working as part of the management team that computerized the British Income Tax System. From rescuing and leading the delivery of two major systems for the 43 Police Forces in England and Wales to directing major Programs of work for some of the largest companies in the world!
