Would you like to see lasting change in our lives and communities? 

My name is David Richmond. I support people to adopt strategic approaches to creative development.

Join me for a Walk in Development and experience a creative alignment between our own development, those around us and the wider world.

This is our moment

This is Our Moment is a rolling programme of authentic creative development and a long-term commitment to sustainable social change.

It is a record of our on-going creative journey and a resource to inspire further development.

The programme creates the context for sustainable social change by ensuring everything we do  is focused on our long-term development and helps build a creative resource for ourselves and others. 

If  you are tired of one-off projects and short term initiatives,  and want to be able to facilitate lasting change in our lives and communities then join me for a walk in development and I’d be delighted to tell you more.

Read on below, see examples here or Contact me for more information.

How it works

I go for at least one walk each week and share the process as openly as possible to provide opportunities for creative reflection, collaboration and mutual development.

We follow a simple, universal process that is useful at any stage of every developmental activity, so people can join in at any time.

The programme (and the development framework that underpins it) provides the context for all my work. Thus everything I do, in my own practice or collaboratively, informs our further development.

This strategic approach enables me to design personal bespoke programmes (walks, forums, projects and events) for individuals and groups that enable people to tap into a wider development community whilst benefitting from – and contributing to – a growing resource.

How you can engage?

  • Use the content to stimulate development for yourself, your group or community. 
  • Book a walk for yourself or your team and I’ll walk you through the process.
  • Host a single walk, or a bespoke programme.
  • Join our development community where we support each other’s development. 

Features of the programme:

An open programme, as far as is possible, I will share the process openly to reduce barriers to entry and provide opportunities for creativity, collaboration and mutual development.

A universal and comprehensive programme that can be applied to every stage of any developmental activity (by individuals, organisations and communities).

A personal, self-organised programme with  a process you  implement in your own practice –  you provide your own content and invest as much or as little as is useful for yourself.

A social programme to facilitate shared exploration and creative collaboration,  with opportunities to get peer-support and advice from other people on the programme.

A strategic programme that helps us make the best use of our resources to achieve our long term goals.

A sustainable programme – helps to facilitate sustainable social change by ensuring all our activities take place in the context of our long-term development as individuals, groups and communities.

An on-going programme with no false starts or abrupt stops.

A cyclical programme – the programme follows a simple development cycle that is repeated regularly to help us maintain a development approach in which we keep a positive attitude and learn from our experience.

A non-linear programme, we are all at different stages in our development, the programme does not assume that we are all ‘blank slates’ or that we start from the same place or are able to invest the same about of time and energy.

A modular programme, each element has the same basic features – you can join in at any time and it doesn’t matter if you’ve missed a session. In fact, you’ve already started – you’ve been in development your whole life!

All these features makes it easy for me to design bespoke development pathways and projects and adapt the programme to fit your particular circumstances. Contact me for details.

Join our community

A development community is a group of people who support each other’s journey in development and share what we learn to build resources for further creative development.

For as little as $1 dollar a month you can join our community.

Every contribution makes it easier for us to build partnerships and develop new projects and initiatives – which you’ll be the first to hear about!  For those that can contribute more there are lots more benefits including personal and team walks and on-going support and resources to develop yourself, your team or organisation.

As the network grows we’ll be able to support more people, provide more walks, forums and events, create better resources, develop partnership projects and much more…
