Richard is a director of a digital marketing company.

He describes himself as self-assured and ambitious, and says his only regret is not being a millionaire before turning 30.

He says building up four profit-making companies is the business achievement he is most proud of to date, and cites Richard Branson as one of his inspirations because of the business empire he has created.

He says: “I’m a Swiss army knife of bouncy skills, business skills, enthusiasm, I’ve got everything highly tuned and highly chiselled.”
