Dick Strawbridge

Eco-engineer, ex-Army Colonel and TV presenter, Dick Strawbridge is recognisable nationwide for his handlebar moustache, as well as for being an engineer-inventor and sustainability expert. Best known for his BBC2 series on sustainable living and eco-technology 'It's not easy being green',  he entertains on the corporate circuit as an after dinner and keynote speaker.

Eco Engineer, ex-army colonel and TV presenter, Dick Strawbridge, recognisable nationwide for his handlebar moustache, is an engineer-inventor and sustainability expert.

In 1978 Dick joined the Army, and a few years later did a degree in Electrical Engineering. Over the next 20 years Dick rose from Troop Commander to Lieutenant Colonel, completing a degree in Engineering at the same time.

Throughout his army career, Dick was always fascinated by how things work. He loved taking things apart. Dick believes that understanding how and why things work is crucial to achieving anything in life.

Still serving in the Army, Dick was persuaded to audition for C4's Scrapheap Challenge and a star was born.

Appealing to producers for his leadership abilities and engineering skills, as well as his sparkly personality, it was Dick’s fabulous moustache that sealed the deal!

Not Easy Being Green was a series which followed the family as they moved down to their smallholding in Cornwall and their attempt to live as green a life as possible.

After making it all the way to the MasterChef final in 2010, Dick turned his sights to the sea, filming The Hungry Sailors, where he sailed around the UK coastline with his son James, sourcing and cooking local food.

Dick has also recently filmed Dirty Rotten Survival, a show on National Geographic, filmed in The Berkshire Mountains, USA.

Dick is a very relatable and warm character, making him ideal for any type of event.
