Richard Merrick

I have been working with those I regard as artisans all my working life. Those people whose commitment to their vocation, whether in the private or the public sphere makes them natural leaders.  Their commitment to what they do, their curiosity about it, and their determination to contribute put them at the centre of the myriad small changes that collectively move mountains over time.

The times we are in needs artisans - not just those who create things with their hands, but those who craft and share ideas about things that matter. Individually, artisans are as important as they are often low profile.

My work is to serve them - to evoke the artisan that exists in all of us, to enable them and connect them in pursuit of what we need now. Doing the hard work of going beyond the shouting, to shaping the areas in which they work and live.
