Originally from Somerset, Richard worked an apprenticeship as an antique furniture restorer before training as an actor. He spent some years honing his craft before joining the corporate sector after realising that many of the skills involved were cross disciplinary.
Richard regularly facilitates coaching, training and drama based learning sessions across four continents. He has worked across a wide range of industries including banking, oil & gas, construction and aerospace as well as many public sector arenas. Richard has extensive experience of behavioural safety that is complimented by him being bosiet qualified and a regular offshore visitor. Having established an extensive and highly experienced network of business colleagues he set up Opie Associates in 2014.
Richard is a qualified ILM level seven Executive Coach and a member of the Association for Coaching and The Institute of Leadership and Management.
When not delivering Richard’s time is taken up with his young family, looking after the chickens and trying to fit in the odd game of league cricket with his local village team where he is also the youth coach.
