Research interests

Rich began work at Hartpury in 2012, joining the organisation from a County Sport Partnership. Rich teachers across Sports Business and Equine Business Management programmes in subjects such as marketing, facilities management, sports development, sports industry and social media. Rich teachers across levels 1, 2 and 3 and is the executive producer of the Hartpury social media video channel, Hartpury TV.
Outside of his work at Hartpury, in the summer of 2014, he appeared on the Channel 4 documentary ‘Stammer School: Musharaf Finds his Voice’, where Rich helped five students learn to control their speech using the same techniques which changed his life. Both him and the course had an incredible effect on each of the students and as a result they left confident and happy in their stammer control. Rich’s involvement in ‘Stammer School’ attracted much local and national media interest, including ITV’s This Morning, BBC Radio 5 Live and The Sunday Telegraph.
Rich has also found himself in great demand to share his experiences with organisation’s, businesses and schools across the UK. He has been invited to present Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme Gold awards at St James’ Palace, and being a gold award holder himself, Rich is now an ambassador and spokesperson for the award scheme. His speeches are about his personal stammering journey from disability to teaching, how he actively challenges himself in all that he does in order to become a stronger speaker and why he is determined to continue to help other stammerers find their voices. Rich continues to develop himself as a rugby coach and public speaker, and he often invited to speak at events, conferences and awards evenings.
