Managing Director at First Sight Media
Rich spearheads the First Sight Media team in creating, shaping, and delivering innovative events for a broad array of customers. A trusted partner to clients in the likes of academia, pharmaceuticals, medical and IT sectors, First Sight Media has been able to use its expertise to deliver the technical elements of events for organisations typically beyond the reach of a company of their size. Under Rich’s leadership, the company has seen at least 20% year-on-year growth since 2019, doubling its headcount in less than three years, and is proud to be the reigning Oxfordshire Business Awards Small Business of the Year.
With 16 years of technical events experience, Rich derives immense personal satisfaction from his hands-on role as a producer and thrives on finding solutions to challenges which, for all the robust and careful planning, can often occur in a live environment.
Keen to help even more customers embrace the technology for in-person, virtual and hybrid events, Rich can be found on blogs, podcasts and videos across the internet – championing audience engagement online.
