“The most quotable person in brand strategy”

Simon Manchipp, founder of Someone.


My name is Richard Huntington. I am the Chairman and Chief Strategy Officer of Saatchi & Saatchi and the former head of planning at the legendary agency HHCL. With 27 years experience in advertising I remain a staunch advocate of the ad business in the face of the naysayers and neophiles, partly out of powerful conviction and partly out of sheer contrariness. I am a member of the IPA’s Strategy Group, a frequent judge of the APG awards, a regular columnist for a variety of trade publications and commentator on brands and advertising. I am also on the board of LIFT, London’s most exciting festival of theatre and performing arts. I also am the co-founder of London lifestyle brand Bleak House.

Most of the presentations and talks I make that are not client sensitive are posted on my Slideshare. Views currently stand at over 150k.

If you would like me to speak this video from a recent APG event gives you a flavour of what to expect.
