“Richard’s RTFO campaign completely overshadowed any others I’ve seen in the last 15 years. He built a coalition of supportive stakeholders and left the Government in no doubt as to the consequences of a poor decision. As the campaign intensified, it completely changed Government thinking and and resulted in the sector getting a much better result, which ensured its commercial survival. I can only put the change in result down to Richard's campaign."
- Dr Jeremy Tomkinson, CEO, National Non-Food Crop Centre
“The essence of a good campaign is to understand who you are trying to influence and the messages you need to motivate them. Richard’s campaign recognised this, connected them in a methodical way, enthused stakeholders and influenced decision makers. The campaign undoubtedly made an important difference to the result which had real-life commercial benefit and helped to secure livelihoods.”
