Rhodri runs his property development and retail businesses in parallel with his other interests so maintains an intimate understanding of the 'real life' issues and challenges which face businesses in Wales.

 

Rhodri has delivered a number of consultancy contracts across a range of areas for organisations such as Bangor University, Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum, Carmarthenshire Tourism Association and Carmarthen Town Council.

 

Rhodri also has a strong interest in the third sector and has sat as a board member for charitable organisations such as Artscare Gofal Celf and as a steering group member for projects in organisations such as Shelter Cymru, Community Housing Cymru and the University of Wales Trinity Saint David.

Rhodri is a strong believer that innovative project activity can create real social change within Welsh communities. As such, he was recently responsible for helping to bring the 'Men's Sheds' movement to Wales and managed to secure £250,000 of BIG Lottery funding to create a network of 'sheds' across Wales.
