Richard Garnett

At the heart of communication, resolving conflict and preaching the gospel is our ability to listen and understand others. As someone once said, 'If I believe you really understand me, I'll be open to what you have to say. If I don't, I won't.' But how good are we? Honestly? In this workshop I want to explore how we can become great. Great at listening, great at understanding, great at being able to resolve conflicts, and even – dare I say it – great at being able to communicate the gospel.

I don't think there has ever been a time where people are more exhausted. Every day I work with clients in senior positions who are overwhelmed with too many tasks, too many emails and not enough time. Their working days never seem to stop, and I suspect there are many in the church who feel the same way. In this session I want to explore how you can be as excited and energised about your ministry at 80 as you were when you began. What can we practically stop, start and continue that will help us on our journey?

About Richard Garnett

Richard Garnett spent the first half of his life as a professional actor. He was trained at RADA and worked extensively with the RSC, Sir Peter Hall, Alan Ayckebourne and in the West End and on Broadway. He also appeared in film and on TV, including the role of Gussie Fink-Nottle in Jeeves and Wooster.

Since the mid-1990s he has run his own communications business. He has worked with clients such as McKinsey, Goldman Sachs and KPMG, delivering senior leadership training across Europe. Says Jeremy Anderson: 'At KPMG, our success depends on our ability to deeply understand our people and our clients. For 20 years Richard has helped us hugely in doing exactly that.'

In his spare time, Richard works with students at Oak Hill and Wycliffe colleges.
