RICHARD RICHARDSON began his career in marketing with Rowntree Mackintosh before spending the next 12 years with multi-national advertising agencies such as BBDO and Young & Rubicam.  He teamed up with John Barnes to turn Harry Ramsden's from a single Fish & Chip shop in Yorkshire into a highly successful international brand on a shoestring before selling the business to Compass PLC, the world's largest catering company. Richard was responsible for the marketing and franchise development.

"Richard was very engaging and has a real rapport with the audience. His style was active and encouraged participation from the crowd making for a fun and interesting talk."
Centre For Business

Richard and John fell into a way of thinking which they now call "Marketing Judo", based on the principles of Judo where brains matter more than brawn, and where anyone can become a Black Belt if they move quickly, train hard enough and keep their balance when others don't!

Richard takes you through their 7 moves of Marketing Judo that they are successfully applying to both their own and other companies today. Packed with amusing stories and events from their own experiences as well as practical examples from a whole range of companies, Richard demonstrates how it's always possible to find a competitive advantage - however small your budget or large your opponent!

  • Again, an excellent rating. Aas the event loomed, with potential hosts holding off from committing, what was greatly appreciated was the calm approach taken (and patience with my own frequent, frantic, worried phone calls!) The process was very smooth, both before and after the booking was made and what was appreciated was the sense that getting the right host meant as much to you as it did to use. Many thanks Office Smart Ltd
