Professional Certified Coach. Leadership Catalyst at Q595
Richard Bentley started working life as a journalist, followed by several years in public relations before establishing his own corporate communications consultancy. He first trained as a coach in 2000 and started his own coaching business, which included acquiring and holding the UK license for a global coaching skills training programme for nearly a decade with a colleague.
Over the past 19 years Richard has worked as an executive coach with a wide range of leaders in several different sectors – professional services, financial services, hotels, IT, manufacturing and not-for-profit.
Perhaps because of his background in corporate communications and relationship counselling, his work as a coach is often focused on supporting those with leadership responsibilities to enhance their communications and relationship building impact.
His accreditations as a coach include ICF Professional Certified Coach, Marshal Goldsmith Stakeholder Centred Coach, Results Certified Coach, and in Nancy Kline’s Thinking Partnerships.
