Richard's Profile

Experience Summary

Since 2003 I have organised, promoted, and managed many fundraising, music, and activity events. In my 3 years at NSPCC I have organised events from hikes in the Malvern Hills, to starstudded balls raising over £70,000 in a single event. I am also co-founder and co-director of New Realm Entertainment, where I have organised and managed over twenty five music, fundraising, and student events. I am currently involved in a few projects and am looking for further freelance/temporary work in events and promotions to support me during this time. I am an enthusiastic, hardworking and outgoing individual who works well independently but I also excel within a team. I have a full UK driving license and I am available for work immediately.
