Richard Richards is senior consultant at The Ariel Group. He has traveled wide and far in a number of leadership and training roles in both corporate and non-profit arenas. Originally from the United Kingdom, he has lived and worked around the world over the past 40 years, giving him a deep appreciation for the world and its many peoples. Clients rave about his passion to work with people at both ends of the world’s pyramid: those at the top and those at the foundation, and to build a bridge over the rapidly widening chasm between these two groups. Richard speaks both English and Spanish fluently. As a professional actor, Richard has studied improvisation at Second City in Chicago and has worked on stage, in voice-over and in film.
