Head of Development, Scottish Gymnastics:
“I've been fortunate over the years to have listened to and learnt from a number of leaders.
Its fair to say that the planning case study session (how he fulfilled his role with the British and Irish Lions) that Guy Richardson from EIGER Performance delivered today at the Scottish Gymnastics Leadership Academy was the best I have listened to. I can highly recommend using Guy and he has become an integral part of our programme.”
Bob Easson, National Coach, National Team Manager & Mentor:
"Overall an excellent workshop delivered by someone who has done it - real life examples are always the best!"
Attendee at SRU leadership workshop:
"Great thought provoking discussions on effective leadership. Your ability to connect with the audience and interact with the input of the candidates was excellent."
Patrick Haslett, Commercial Director, Paralympics Ireland:
"Your talk was simply fantastic!"
Gary Keegan, Director of Irish Institute of Sport:
"I was very impressed by your talk. Your pragmatic approach to relationships and your attention to detail around planning and execution was refreshing."
Attendee at the Irish Institute of Sport event:
"I was in attendance at your talk in Sport HQ (I'm the guy that asked about your 'role model'). I have been to a number of talks over the years of my involvement in sport and management/leadership and hands down yours was the best by far.
If you are ever in Ireland again I would love to listen to you again and learn from you."
Warren Gatland on accepting his Coach of The Year Award at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2013
"This is a reflection of all the people that are involved and two years of meticulous planning and preparation from our logistics manager Guy Richardson.”
Gavin Dovey, Team Manager, Australian Cricket Team:
"I can say with supreme confidence that Guy is a highly respected sports administrator who is considered, particularly in professional rugby circles, to be world class and at the top of his field in regards to tour and team management, planning, operations and logistics. In my 10 years of working in elite sport, I’ve rarely met sports administrators in Guy’s class. Guy is a true professional who is incredibly impressive and personable."
Andy Irvine MBE, Tour Manager, The British and Irish Lions Tour 2013:
“The importance of the Operations Director role should not be underestimated. If not up to the job, the tour will almost certainly fail off the field and very likely on the field as well. As tour manager, I was very fortunate to have someone of Guy’s experience and calibre.”
Jon Doig, CEO / Chef de Mission Commonwealth Games Scotland:
"As part of the 'Scotland House' at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Commonwealth Games Scotland required a secure, relaxed and welcoming space to support Team Scotland athletes, staff and their family and friends. Guy Richardson of Eiger Sport and Business Performance developed and delivered a high quality management and operational support structure based on a very specific brief. The project was very high profile and Guy and the team that he recruited and trained delivered against high expectations in a pressured environment and time frame. Guy worked well with a range of public and private sector partners in the wider Scotland House project and was able to contribute his experience in project management and delivery. His background working with similar client groups also meant he could bring his own innovative ideas to the project ultimately contributing to a successful Team Scotland and successful Commonwealth Games."
