  • Richard Wilkins is an International Inspirational Speaker/Author with 18 years experience within the field of Human Happiness, Consciousness, Awareness.

    Richard lost his fortune but got a life when he discovered ‘There.’

    Richard’s unique gift is to be able to compress huge wisdom into a simple format. A format that we can accept, understand and use with immediate, yet lasting results.

    In his own words, “We are all Superheroes pretending to be ordinary people, our true purpose is to be who we really are, minus the Script.

    Everything else then becomes easy when you become the Superhero.”

    …Today Richard is the UK Minister for Inspiration.

    Here's some of the stuff I do:

    'I'm thick. No, really I am.

    And everyone says, - no, you're just saying that - and then they get to know me and they say - you really are thick aren't you?!!!'

    'If I say something and I'm trying to be funny, and it's not that funny, do you mind laughing anyway?'

    'If you have constructive criticism after this talk, please keep it to yourself!'

    'Most people haven't got a f****** clue who they are.'

    'Dying people don't bull****'

    'There's more people smiling in a hospice, than the checkout in Tesco'

    'I'm not going to give you a list of 10 things to do. Why not?

    Because you WON'T DO 'EM!'

    Anyway, this is what I love - inspiring people, having fun, making them feel good and helping their lives...

    I've got an amazing system. It works. It works instantly. And it gets stronger over time...

    How about that for a system!!!!

    Here's some stuff that people have said about me:

    “I attended a workshop with Richard - helping me to express my personality and personal journey in my professional work as a Business Coach. Fabulous event which encouraged me to travel the world and speak from the stage in 21 Countries, write my two books - Life Rules OK and Your Busines Rules OK.
    Highly recommended - be prepared for fun and exporation...
    Thanks Richard - truly the Minister for Inspiration” July 22, 2011

    hired Richard as a Career Coach in 2004

    “Richard is the most inspirational person I've ever met. His teachings cut right to the heart of what is important in life: How to be happy, successful, live an amazing life and how to get the best feelings in the world through helping other people. His Metaphors of the Script and the Sausage Machine are life changing and we use them in our business every single day, and they change people's lives. I am eternally grateful that I met Richard and the Broadband Consciousness (BC) approach and shudder to think how I might still be going along had our paths never crossed. And I was doing great already! As a mentor he is without parallel and I hope this inspires more people to contact him and to find out what happens in Northampton at the Ministry of Inspiration!” July 6, 2011

    “I met Richard whilst at ActionCOACH and he helped me on a personal level and in my business.

    He showed me an approach to life that I have passed on to others and most importantly to my young son - who, whenever he is asked how he is his reply is always "really well!" - he has said this prety much since he learnt to speak and everytime I hear him say it it reminds me of Richard and Liz - the gift of a happy, proactive and positive child no matter what is priceless - thanks guys!” February 22, 2011

    2nd Paul Smith
    hired Richard as a motivation and fresh thinking in 2005, and hired Richard more than once

    “I attended a one day Recharge Event that introduced the concept of Broadband Consciousness (BC) to me. I booked on the 5 day course and attended in October 2009. This 5 day course, lead by Richard Wilkins and Liz Ivory, changed my life and continues to work for me everyday since. Richard has a passion for BC that is contagious and rightly so. This course should be mandatory for everyone no matter how great their life is. After BC you won't need any other type of self help or personal development. This is it, it is so simple and yet it gets stronger and more effective with time A must for our kids but also the business benefits for empowering indviduals should not be underestimated. Thanks Richard, your work is incredible and you truly are inspiring everyone to lead amazing lives.”September 2, 2010

    “I have known Richard now for, well it must be 5 years.
    My first meeting with Richard came when I listened to him speak at a
    meeting I was attending.
    I've heard lots of speakers over the years and can I say some of the best.
    Richard totally blew me away with what he had to say, not only what he said but how authentic and real he was himself .
    I can honestly say my life has changed in an amazing way since I've been working and associating with Richard and totally in a positive way.
    The most important thing Richard has passsed on to me, is to be totally Honest and authentic to myself and others.
    Thank you Richard for coming into my life and becoming a really close friend.

    “Richard could well be the Minister for Inspiration, whatever the Government.

    He totally made me rethink my life, realise I am an amazing person and helped me decide the new ways I would take action to improve my life and of those around me.

    Richard makes you understand yourself, take action and be the person you want to be. How empowering is that?” June 30, 2010

  • Tom Cassidy Thought Engineer, Reasonable Polymath

    Tom Cassidy - Internationally Published Author, Thought Engineer, Reasonable Polymath, using algorithms to help people crack the deepest issues of their lives: self-worth, self-belief, goal-achieving, feeling good, achieving sustainable health and deeply fulfilling relationships.

    Tom's mantra is: 'Feel Good. Do Stuff.'

    Tom says:

    Life's not about meditating on the top of a mountain in Nepal, feeling great, achieving enlightenment for yourself...

    And it's definitely not about going through life doing things, without having awareness, being busy, achieving a lot but not being mindful of the bigger picture.

    It's about both.

    Feel good. Do Stuff.

    Feel great about yourself, about life, the universe and everything, but do loads of things as well. Have a family, run a business, learn Italian, travel the world, change the world - Do Stuff.

    I mean, why not?

    Tom has combined the wisdom of hundreds of years of the study of global philosophies, human effectiveness, modern findings of behavioural science, recent breakthroughs in the understanding of brain physiology and even the results of quantum mechanics into practical systems for getting things done.

    Systems based on practical algorithms of thought and of operation. Algorithms that are easy enough for most people to do just as they are, without having to change any aspect of their life. 'Reasonable Algorithms for Reasonable People.'

    Here's the open source (as in free) version of the algorithms applied to eating: Reasonable Eating: The Algorithms

    Tom's signal achievement is applying the concept of 'One Thing At A Time' to getting what you want out of life. He has designed a system that takes monotasking to a new level and most importantly works with a minimum of willpower.

    You still need to do the work. But the willpower you need to get the results is almost certainly the lowest you've ever used for achieving anything in your life, ever.

    Please feel free to connect with him on LinkedIn - here's a few comments from clients that sum him up nicely...

    'After only a few minutes of listening to Tom I was hooked and realized this was not your ordinary "pump up" seminar. Tom delved into the psychology of why we do what we do when it comes to our relationship with finding/creating a career instead of spouting out only strategies/tactics. He's amassed a vast amount of unique resources to share with people that will not only get them to act, but to make people understand emotional intelligence we have and need to use more of. He's the "why" guy when it comes to people and careers.

    More Feedback:

    “I attended Tom's seminar on "The Science of Career Change" in Austin, TX and enjoyed it so much that I attended a second seminar on career transition that he gave a few days later. In both talks, Tom used a scientific perspective and witty delivery to present an incredible amount of valuable and actionable information. In particular, I loved Tom's explanation of the Reticular Activating System and how to make it work in your favor to help you get what you want. Another point that stuck with me was how to use Tom's "Weighting Game" to discover your priorities in a career or other major decision.

    I look forward to hearing more from Tom, and I highly recommend his work to anyone in career transition or even someone who is simply looking for positive change in his or her life.” April 23, 2012

    hired Tom as a Career Coach in 2012

    “Tom made a terrific presentation to approximately 200 job seekers, mostly white-collar members of my organization, the Launch Pad Job Club. The curious title was "Advanced Thought Algorithms for Career Transition." Using humor and logic, he led us through a series of physics principles (e.g. the theory of relativity) and showed us how perfectly they could be applied to the job search process. He was intelligent, entertaining, and inspiring, one of the best speakers we've ever had. Can't wait to get him back.” February 28, 2012

    “Tom came to speak to our Career Connections job club (in the Austin, Texas area) for the first time in January, and he was one of the most dynamic, highly energetic speakers we have ever hosted. The topic of his presentation was "Zero-Pressure Goal Setting: How to achieve your biggest goal for 2012." Coupled with a naturally inspiring, engaging style, Tom's ability to apply the principles of quantum physics to career development proved instrumental in motivating job seekers to achieve their goals. We look forward to having him speak again in April!” February 10, 2012

    “Tom designed training specific to our mentors and mentees on the PEACH programme entitled 'the Science of Great Mentoring'. His approach focused on giving mentors the confidence as well as the skills and techniques to help their mentees become motivated and secure as independent learners.

    This training, although delivered to a group, honed in on each participant as an individual and focused on their unique relationships with their mentees. Each person accessed the material from their own unique standpoint; a key consideration given the assortment mentoring relationships within PEACH.

    Tom's approach to mentoring is supported by a breadth of educational experience and knowledge.As well as giving practical guidelines on a variety of educational methods and easily accessible cutting-edge resources, he also expanded on the limitless potential of the mentoring relationship. Reflecting upon this relationship, Tom reminded us of our capacity for greatness as individuals, and showed us how awaken this capacity in our mentees.” November 1, 2011

WARNING - This course POLARIZES people: You'll either LOVE it or HATE it as the reviews will show you!

5-Star: 'Insightful, Helpful, Practical, Optimistic and Holistic'

As for the words I used above, I like the fact that it is easy to understand yet maintains great depth. If you are someone who is suffering from depression or anxiety - whatever it may be, you will likely find this incredibly helpful. If you feel your fine, you'll still find this interesting and hopefully worthwhile. Better yet, not only for you, but for others you may know. All in all, I find the message here, uniquely, and heavily related to the messages to many of the figures I admire. There is much that can be said, but it is for you to experience and come up with a conclusion. I'm sure it will be worth your while. Honestly, I found this message to be a fantastic and important gift. I'm glad it's here free. - Brian

5-Star: Great program to make you think

Its a great program that makes you think and see what it is that is really holding you back. No the question is what are you going to do about it after you've completed the course. - Mirko

1-Star: rubbish

this guy sounds like a total looney freak with an IQ level of a biscuite... you sure you should be teaching about genius? couldnt handle listening to more than half of the first lecture. - Pouya

Interesting huh? So what's in the course? And why does it divide opinion so much?

Tom Cassidy asks Richard Wilkins, the founder of the UK's Ministry of Inspiration , to sum up his thoughts on 'Being a Genius v. Accessing Genius'.

Richard explains his system that allows ordinary people to access the genius that is available to us all. It explains what it really means to 'be' a genius, and why most people who are thought of as geniuses end up being somewhat disappointing as we find out more about them.

It also enables us to deal with all the 'yeah but...' beliefs that our own internal programmings throw up at us, and it allows us to be comfortable doing great things, without having to then live with the epithet 'genius'.

In our experience of delivering this message to people, we've found that a lot of people won't like the simplicity of the message, they won't dare to believe that they have the power to access genius themselves and they will resent the ease with which its methods appear to work.

You see, if it really IS this simple then it takes away people's excuses for not doing it. And people might not like that very much.

Anyway, Take this free “Access Your Genius” course, see what all the fuss is about and learn how to become a genius yourself. the world is waiting...

    • A willingness to believe that you have greater powers than you ever imagined.
    • Over 21 lectures and 2.5 hours of content!
    • By the end of the course you will know how to regularly access your inner genius.
    • Anyone whoe believes that they can be more but doesn't know how to get started.

  • Jonas Warstad
    Deep and Powerful

    Richard is flamboyant and has an accent that is not always easy to understand 100% if you're not from GB, but his message is deep and powerful if you're reday to heed it. I have personally experienced the "B.C" long before I heard the expression, so it was easy for me to understand what he was talking about, also from an emotional, not only intellectual, point of view.

  • Janis Musgrove
    Great concept.

    Short presentation on being real - leads you to a different approach to thinking and self acceptance. Touches on the 'Me' and 'We' aspects of success.

  • Ruth Howard
    The simplest information that I've never connected

    I've sought this information all of my life. Richard has connected me up, to myself, to Source, to sense making and to others. Thank you to Tom for presenting the information so accessibly too.

  • Tamara Williams
    Great Points about increasing your Awareness and Serving Others

    The examples of celebrities and famous persons such as Micahel Jackson and Elvis Presley that he used to compare their career vs their personal life does make a strong point. What they have are specific talents that are genius. Interesting concept about using Broadband Consciousness to connect to Genius. He encourages persons to focus on giving great service to others based on your Passion which will get you access to Genius. I really like his video presentation of recharge day. It was very fun. He made an interesting point about Personal Development courses and the pressure to be happy all the time. Very great lecture videos and it did increase my awareness.
