About this speaker

Richard is founder of Animl, a new kind of agency that brings together innovation and storytelling. He believes in the power of purpose: the need for brands to take on social causes and contribute to issues their consumers care about. In a world in which corporate entities can be as influential as governments, he is convinced that consumers will prefer to support brands that put good things in the world. Richard’s agency has been on a journey with Unilever’s Dirt Is Good brands to understand the changing nature of childhood in the 21st Century. As a father of twins, this is of course a subject very close to his heart.
