Richard consults to corporates on digital strategy and customer centricity; lectures at business school on strategy, marketing, and innovation; and advises high growth early stage businesses.
He has a deep understanding of how changing technology has resulted in new ways for consumers to engage with both each other and the brands they purchase from, fundamentally changing the way shoppers buy. He combines this with what he has learnt about the dynamics of building disruptive businesses. He believes many corporates need to re-learn to act like successful start ups. In addition to his consulting work, he lectures at Kingston Business School on Strategy, Marketing and Innovation, is Entrepreneur-in-Residence at TrueStart, is a Non-Executive Director of Old St Labs, Reevoo and formerly of Invisible Hand (sold to SkimLinks).

Prior to founding Reevoo, Richard was a senior strategy consultant at KPMG covering the technology, media and telecoms space; interim Head of Group Planning at Orange, covering 22 countries; and part of the team managing investments of up to £5 million at 3i. He has a PhD from the University of Bristol and MBA from the Cranfield School of Management.
