Official Feedback from In-Person & Virtual Events

Feedback from In-Person Events:

“Richard’s story is a perfect one to inspire the children to improve their all round standards of literacy. His visit to Casllwchwr Primary was a truly memorable and fantastic occasion. The positive impact he made on the children that he met and answered questions to is genuinely immeasurable and is another wonderful outcome from his brave decision to undertake the 737 Challenge in the first place. Stories such as Richard's provide a unique opportunity to engage children with literacy and improve their skills. Their project on Richard was an incredible academic success and one that all involved will never forget.” - David Brayley, School Governor & Education Consultant

"Richard has really become part of the family at Admiral. He has inspired staff across the organisation, whether speaking to thousands at our annual staff general meeting or to smaller groups as an ambassador for our Ministry of Health initiative. What you see is what you get with Richard, an approachable, passionate and infectiously positive person, and we are lucky to have him associated with Admiral." - Louisa Scadden, Head Of Communications, Admiral Group plc 

"The challenging goals we have set require continued great leadership, flexibility and an enhanced sense of ownership across the company. We asked Richard to get involved because of the challenging goals he had to overcome to succeed. The video we produced with Richard inspired and engaged our team as the 737 Challenge had many synergies with our own vision and his passion and professionalism meant he worked closely with our team to deliver exactly what we needed." - Andy Street, Managing Director Of John Lewis

"Richard was a great choice of speaker for our event.  He was incredibly engaging and very inspiring. Richard was able to relate the journey he has been on over the last 10 years to various aspects of the business world we operate in and it really hit the mark with a lot of our staff. All in all a perfect choice of speaker for our event. Thank you for putting us in touch with Richard!"Nick, Energi People
