EVENT HOST :
As the host of your business event, Richard will add two priceless qualities. First, insight. He’s spent 20 years as a reporter and editor for Reuters, The Economist, The Financial Times and Bloomberg, giving him a unique take on global business. Second, personality. Richard injects life, energy, and humor into every interaction, whether as MC, moderator, interviewer or awards host.
KEYNOTE SPEAKER :
Richard’s a sought-after keynote speaker. One Bold Vision and Five Brave Decisions is a brief history (and future) of the UAE economy; it’s perfect for executives visiting the region. It draws on two decades of journalistic experience, as well as his book Sink or Swim, which analyses Dubai’s boom-to-bust-to-boom economy of the late 2000s
“Richard has a strong stage presence, a high profile and his extensive experience is clear; he was able to improvise and adapt where necessary, which is essential during a live event.”
“The role of chairman is a crucial one to ensuring the success of any event, and Richard’s enthusiasm, energy and ability to stimulate questions from the audience played an enormous part in this.”
Richard did a wonderful job as the MC and Moderator. We are thankful for your contribution in making this conference one of the most memorable events in the history of our chapter.
