Hi Richard,
Just thought of sending you a short message to thank you for all the years' of great tips and learnings via your monthly EDM since Oct 2011! It has been a great 11 years for me and I'm sure it was fantastic too on your end. Please continue your awesome work. Warm regards,

Kevin Lau - Malaysia

Hello Richard,
It’s me Solomone Tautua’a from Tonga. I’ve attended your seminars and I enjoy them a lot. I wasn’t here when you came into the shop to meet you and to take you around. I’ve just finished teaching and explaining, sharing what I’ve learned from our seminar. Since we finish our seminar I got half an hour every Wednesday to train and share what I’ve learned from the seminar with my co-worker and my Manager. Things change the way I meet customers and how to handle complaints and customers. I am still back and forth reading my booklet from the seminar. I now enjoy and love my job (DECISION MAKER).

The impression and the enthusiasm you generated were overwhelming. It has sparked a rewrite today of our plan's strategic aims.

Thanks, Richard.
All these photos are great. You also did a great job during these two weeks; customers are asking for more. Looking forward to seeing you when you come back.


Richard, it is you that needs the thanking. Heather and I appreciated you taking the time to come down to be on the show today and I am so grateful for your help after the interview. I have already been in and changed some of my words on the website. Thank you so much for your inspiration and time.

Morning Richard,
I am just emailing you to let you know that I have just arrived back from Wellington after visiting some of my customers and putting into practice some of the things that you talked about in my course (19-6-12). A couple of things I found hard to do was the way I was standing and asking open-ended questions. When I put a pen in my hand it helped out a lot so I made sure to always have one with me. Thanks for all the good advice that you gave me on the course.

Jean Müller

Hi Richard,
Thanks for sending the letter reminding me the personal challenges. I am happy to tell you at least one of the techniques I have used successfully from my list. That is “Using Silence Technique”. And you know the results are positive and I am quite happy. I am trying to use other techniques as well. Thanks for your help. I am still struggling to find networking techniques in B2B environment. I have found some groups but they are mostly for small businesses. Can you help me in this regard?
Kind Regards,

Alok Mishra - Principal Consultant, Expense Reduction Analysts

National Speakers Association - Wellington

On behalf of the Auckland branch of the Evacuees' Reunion Association, NZ Branch, I have been asked to convey to you our very hearty thanks for all the help you gave us at the recent Reunion. The Treasurer was especially grateful for the way you stayed to see us safely off the Church premises, despite the lateness of the hour on Saturday, knowing how far you still had to travel that night. Your actions were far above the calls of family duty.

Aline Gee

Hi Richard,
Thank you soo much for the certificate from Rotary. It was so nice of you to organise that. Your support of myself and the cafe has been much appreciated. With your leadership and energy, I'm sure Rotary and business interests in Tuakau are in good hands. I'll be watching out for news from Tuakau and wish you all well. I'm now looking forward to the next chapter of my life. Thanks again.
Kindest Regards,


Hey Richard,
Thanks for the pics. Also thanks for everything last week. Feedback has been very positive; hopefully, they will all adopt one or two things from your seminar. Actually, with luck, some of them will follow through on our offer and utilise your skills. We will do a follow-up communication this week and remind everyone of the offer. Thanks again.

Rod McAneaney - General Manager

Dear Richard:
Thank you for your great support and encouragement in my journey. I look at you not only as a business coach and you are a good friend too. I have a vision for the direction I take. I trust my judgement. To work less at the clinic physically and work more intellectually. and spiritually. Give me more freedom. To work at a patient's less physical level and more in touch with emotion and spirit level I can see more effective. I love what I do even more than ever before. I have grown into the person I like to be and have created the lifestyle I like to enjoy. Thank you for everything.


May I compliment you on this excellent article, Thank you.

As a result of Richard’s astute coaching, our marketing strategies have developed improved communications with our customers and clients. Richard also helped us expose and recognise particular strengths and weaknesses within our company structure. His constructive suggestions showed us how to capitalise on our strengths.

Betsy Duncan - Actionmail

We’re a young company in terms of personalities, and Richard was able to work comfortably with all levels of the company, we respect the input that has been made and no doubt as an organisation we are better for his contribution. His hands-on consultancy understands the real world, no ‘ivory tower’ stuff with Richard.
