Guy Singh-Watson is a foresighted and humorous storyteller who enjoys simplifying big, complex ideas to make them actionable for a wide range of audiences.

In Detail

In common with many of Riverford's new co-owners, Guy is an advocate of using business to shape a part of the world, however small, to be kinder, more considerate and sustainable; more like the world most of us want to live in. Twice awarded BBC Radio 4 Farmer of the Year, Guy is passionate about sharing the organic farming and business knowledge he has accumulated over the last three decades including the benefits he has reaped from employee ownership and why championing a more human and imaginative approach to business has been a formula for success.

WHAT he OFFERS YOU

Guy is proof of what determination and belief in a better way of doing things can bring - that you can be both an ethical business and commercially effective.
