“I have had the pleasure of working with Richard Gourlay during the past six months. Richard has transformed the strategic thinking and business focus at a senior level within our sales organisation whilst leading us through the change to working within vertical markets.

Richard is extremely credible and manages to relate his knowledge well to the business in hand and demonstrates how we can gain commercial advantage at all times. I have also found Richard going beyond the SLA at times whilst helping individuals get up to speed with the rest of the group which has been much appreciated.

I wholeheartedly recommend Richard Gourlay as a strategic business partner who more than pays for himself! Should you require further testament please do not hesitate to contact me directly.”
