I've always respected people who had the courage, conviction and desire to set-up their own business. The risks can be massive and the benefits not always realised.
At a recent conference I was asked why I set-up Changing Times after being involved with Voyager Travel for over ten years. Well my reason wasn't a business one, mine was very personal - my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer and it took a millisecond to decide I wanted / needed to be her 'gofer & chauffeur'
Yes I am a man and I can't multi-task too many things so it was an easy decision. Being a Managing Director travelling round Asia almost weekly wouldn't allow me to be there for my wife as and when she would need me.
I am so pleased to share that after chemo & radiotherapy my wife has come through and has a very positive prognosis.
The whole situation and process allowed us to realign our lives and plans.
Changing Times was born and mentoring, coaching and training people in the travel industry so they can maximise their potential and opportunities makes everything worthwhile.

Recent business owner testimonial;
As a small business owner, I highly recommend and encourage using the professional services of a business coach.
Richard was able to help guide me through some challenging issues facing my business and provide clarity and advice around difficult decisions.
When you are involved everyday with the running of your business, it was invaluable to have someone who was able to analyse situations from an outside view and provided measured and profound guidance.
It is also helpful at times to have a good ‘sounding board’! I cannot recommend Richard and Changing Times highly enough.
