Type Of Speaker


Rick has hosted events for us across the world from architecture to finance. Apart from his skilled presenting and business background, the reason we come back to him is simple: he reads the room like no one else. That’s something that’s hard to quantify.
Richard Crosby, Sales Director, IQPC

I’ve employed Rick to host three events for us as a speaker and awards host. He’s not only a slick, intelligent and entertaining moderator but always goes the extra mile to pull the best out of each event.
Emily Mincer, Head of Events, Progressive Media International
