It’s been a colourful life: after military service (where Richard saw action in Northern Ireland, and spent time guarding Rudolf Hess in Spandau Prison) he went into the private sector and then joined the Metropolitan Police. After decades as a detective investigating serious crimes, Richard was invited to become a hostage negotiator. His success was such that he was appointed Lead Trainer at the National Hostage and Crisis Unit at Scotland Yard, training hostage negotiators across the UK.

During this time Richard was involved in an advisory capacity with the FBI, the UN, The Indian Secret Services, The Scorpions in Mandela’s South Africa and The World Food Programme, among others.

 

Talks with the Taliban

Richard’s activities in defence of British subjects abroad are largely confidential. However he was part of the team that negotiated the high-profile release of three UN workers held hostage in Afghanistan in 2004. And his listening expertise contributed to the intelligence that informed the rescue of Norman Kember in Iraq in 2006.

 

As such Richard is very well placed to help us understand how to listen and how to negotiate to get mutually beneficial results.
