“Richard’s professional, thoughtful approach made him a great asset not only in crafting the relevant points but also around positioning various complex issues. We had the unenvious task of pulling together the first Annual Report and Accounts, for a large company, with a bespoke regulatory regime. Richard’s experience in investor relations and external communications provided us with great advice on best practice and compliance requirements – these insights really set him apart from other writers.”
Paul Hale, Tideway
“I have known and worked with Richard for several years. I have always received great advice and high quality work. Richard excels at financial and business copywriting, understands requirements quickly and delivers on time. I have no hesitation in recommending him.”
“Richard has worked with Radley Yeldar over the past two years writing and developing a consistent tone of voice for a large FTSE 100 utility company. His ability to work at c-suite level and write transparent, clearly defined copy has helped us on the journey to reaching best practice reporting. I would highly recommend Richard to other companies that are trying to tell a complex story, simply, with an appropriate tone of voice.”
Brett Simnett, Radley Yeldar
“Richard worked with me on producing Serco Group plc’s Corporate Responsibility report. Comfortable with the most senior of our leaders, Richard managed to ask the right questions and capture the right tone to create the copy for the report. The turnaround and quality of content was beyond expectation and along with his knowledge and expertise gave me confidence every step of the way. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Richard on future projects.”
Ben Giles, Serco Group
“Working with Richard is very easy. He very quickly gains knowledge of your client which enables him to know exactly what they want to get across in their copy. We also often include him in our client meetings, as he always adds valuable insight into the work being done.”
Chris Stenning, Emperor
“Richard is one of those rare writers who has the ability to assimilate the relevant points around complex issues, clarify them and produce a piece of work that is clear, lucid and brings home key points. All without losing the essence of the issue. The white papers he prepared for us were complicated pieces of work, which he handled with patience and good humour – producing items we were delighted with.”
Cindy Barnes, Futurecurve
“Richard brought great insight and understanding to the communications issue at hand – applying his experience in financial reporting and investor communications to a successful outcome.”
Joe Johnson, Fishburn
“This is the second year that we have used Richard to help us explain our highly technical business in an easy to understand way. Richard has the ability to take highly technical raw ingredients in either written form or based on an interview and convert them into a logical piece of copy, which is understandable by the average layperson. He is flexible in his approach and always delivers to agreed timeframes, no matter how tight the deadlines.”
Michael Arnaouti, AZ Electronic Materials
“We were looking for someone to help us develop a white paper. The aim of the paper was to help our clients understand more about the challenges involved in improving the health outcomes for Adult Social Care at the same time as reducing the costs of service delivery. In trying to find out how we should approach briefing a copywriter on this subject, we tripped across Richard’s blog and this contained a list of points in how you should brief a copywriter. We then looked at some of his other work and we were impressed. Having spoken with Richard, we found that he had a background in outsourcing and service commissioning which was ideal for the paper we needed to develop. Our experience of working with Richard has been truly excellent. His inquisitive nature helped us form clear objectives and outcomes. He took what were a series of very complex and ‘dry’ issues and brought them to life in a very insightful and interesting white paper. The paper will be of enormous assistance to senior executives in local authorities that have to wrestle with the balance of improving outcomes in Adult Social Care and having to finance the service delivery.”
Allan Watton, Best Practice Group
