Richard has an unrivalled pedigree, having spent a significant chunk of his early career with the World Bank which included investigating the Bank's values as part of his work in their Environmentally Sustainable Development programme.

He left the World Bank in 1997 to set up his own consultancy - which subsequently evolved into the Barrett Values Centre - and the following year he published Liberating the Corporate Soul - Building a Visionary Organisation in which he predicted, "In the 21st Century the soft stuff is destined to become the hard stuff." He also outlined his Seven Levels of Consiousness model and how it applies to individuals and organisations.

Richard's many subsequent books have included Building a Values-driven Organisation: A Whole System Approach to Cultural Transformation in 2006 and The New Leadership Paradigm in 2011.
