Richard Mulholland kicked off his career as a rock n roll roadie, operating lights for bands such as Iron Maiden and Def Leppard. From there he started SA’s largest presentation firm, Missing Link and co-founded 21Tanks, SA’s first perspective lab.
Richard is a highly regarded speaker. When not addressing many of South Africa’s top corporations, he guest lectures on courses for The Cape Graduate School of Business (GSB), and the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS).
As well as his blog, Richard is a columnist for Longevity and Destiny Man magazines.
For Rich, being a speaker and being a rock star are not that far apart. Being on stage means taking your audience on a journey, telling them a story. And who doesn’t like a good story? More importantly, who doesn’t remember one?
Unlike a rock star though, he doesn’t care if you remember him or not – just as long as you recall what he said. But why the passion for provoking thought and action in the corporates? It is just his way of educating companies and rescuing them from tired practices they sometimes insist on keeping the faith in. After all he is a giver!
