About the Talk.
Richard Hillgrove is one of the world’s leading crisis communications and corporate reputation professionals, the go-to PR for celebrities, entrepreneurs and politicians.
After entering into the world of public relations in 2004 Richard first made a mark for himself with his signature concept “celebrity businessmen” – with a client list including James Caan CBE, Duncan Bannatyne OBE and Simon Woodroffe OBE from BBC Dragons’ Den, which has led to his speciality in representing entrepreneurs and their businesses.
Richard – in his trademark hat and beard – has frequently appeared on radio and television commenting on media-related issues. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
He has worked with an eclectic client list, ranging from Wikileaks’ Julian Assange to seminal designer Vivienne Westwood, former Ukraine PM Yulia Tymoshenko, and actor Steven Seagal. Richard’s association with Charles Saatchi brought him massive fame, respect and notoriety.
Richard’s client hire him because of his depth of experience and his clarity of thinking precisely when everything else is often not going to plan.
Along with his uncanny skill in reading the runes of social media, that untameable, frenetic white-water ride. For anyone operating in the public eye, who necessarily has to survive and react to threats and opportunities, Richard brings to bear a powerful blend of old school nous, Kiwi toughness, and forward-looking flexibility.
No-nonsense on the surface, Richard delivers serious, deep, thoughtful knowledge, analysis and understanding for his clients, tempered and honed in the fierce heat of the front line of PR: responsive, proactive, fleet of foot and quick of thought.
Richard will reveal the truth behind some of the biggest news stories about Nigella Lawson, Charles Saatchi, Duncan Bannatyne, James Caan & Jeremy Corbyn:
During His Talk Richard Will:
– reveal all about the massive feud between former Dragons Duncan Bannatyne OBE and James Caan CBE who Hillgrove was simultaneously representing for some time.
– talk about the Saatchi / Nigella case for the first time which Hillgrove was right in the middle of.
– talk about Jeremy Corbyn’s true beliefs around “Brexit”. Hillgrove was chief PR for Labour GO at the the referendum delivering Brexit for the Labour left – very timely given the date for the next general election.
– He will also reveal the fundamentals about how to build your personal brand.
