Richard Atherton

Change Agent & Consulting Partner

In my fifteen+ years as a consultant I have written code, worked as a journalist and designed change initiatives. I have coached development teams on Lean and Agile working, mentored senior leaders and programme-managed major business transformations.

In summary, I like a challenge. I like people and I like technology that can be used to improve our world.

My major interest is in how we can apply some of the recent discoveries in the fields of neuroscience and psychotherapy to the workplace. How can we translate an enhanced understanding of how humans tick into better business?

I’m sceptical of proscribed solutions. My value as a consultant is to encourage the emergence of viable business solutions from within the client’s context.  The answer always lies within.

What clients say about me

Richard wins us over with an easy style, and with a determination to keep us all moving forward. Richard can relate to people from all corners and all levels of our business.
