Dan Richards-Doran Research Communications Specialist, Science Copywriter and Executive Coach
I support researchers and research organisations to unlock the potential of their work and their people by offering communications consultancy, copywriting and coaching.
With 18 years experience of science communications management and leadership in academic and non-profit settings, I bring a deep understanding of the scientific community, proven experience of communicating complex science, and a drive to help others to succeed.
As both a communicator and a coach, I value accuracy, integrity, and confidentiality.
“Dan is an amazing coach. He is very intuitive and takes a human yet analytical approach to problem-solving. He is inquisitive and curious, with a charming and friendly tone. I really enjoyed our sessions together, and worked through some difficult challenges with a sense of achievement and – dare I say it – enjoyment.”

Bringing Dan Richards-Doran onboard for the NIHR Three Schools Mental Health Programme has been so beneficial. Dan has conducted a stakeholder analysis and suggested a communications strategy that will form a strong foundation for the programme as we move forward from the set-up. Dan has given us some very useful insights into how we can communicate the impact of the research and the capacity development from the programme.
