Markham to head Richmond Group
Calvert Markham, a member of the Guild of Management Consultants and managing director of Consultancy Skills Training, has been appointed chairman-elect of the Richmond Group. He will take over in May to coincide with the group’s Annual General Meeting.
As chairman, Markham aims to increase the number of consultants who belong to the Richmond Group and restructure the way it works with the larger consultancies.
Also on Markham’s agenda are plans for a knowledge sharing database, with a bulletin board for intermediaries where notices can be posted using Lotus Notes. It is hoped the project will be up and running by the start of next year.
Markham commented: “The assets of the Richmond Group are very small but intellectual value is something that cannot be valued tangibly. What we do have is a whole lot of people and our strategy is to develop an infrastructure so that people can leverage their talents to be more successful than they would otherwise be.”
