As editor of theNBS.com from 2015 to 2018, Richard was responsible for commissioning, editing and writing much of the content you see on the site.
As a content specialist, he spent over 18 years writing, editing and presenting content for use across print, broadcast and online - including technology magazines, daily newspapers, BBC national and local radio, BBC Online, Directgov and a range of organisations in the higher education sector.
Richard also has extensive experience as a journalist and technical author - delivering materials on subjects as diverse as higher education policy, HR and employment law and communications strategy.
For the last ten years Richard has specialized in developing and implementing digital strategies with a particular emphasis on content migration, development, and promotion, all of which he's put to good use to deliver hundreds of websites and web services. These include sites on higher education policy, a tourist information site for a museum, a brochure site for an international street theatre festival, the complete teardown of a local authority's web presence and the redevelopment of theNBS.com with our relaunched site going live in January 2016.
