Keynote Speaker

Steve Richards

Steve is a hands on executive leader, proven at transforming businesses & their models. While there are many brands & agencies enthused about the possibilities of Digital or Native Content, Storytelling, Influencers and new working models – I’ve been up to my neck in it, creating team culture, selling projects and proving a new model that works. By “works” I mean – profitable, more effective and more creative & unencumbered by the traditional or safe. I know my way around the P&L and the politics.
