True innovation can only happen when new technological skills are seamlessly combined with more traditional intellectual and manufacturing capital.

How Richard is building a better working world

“I help governments and organizations harness digital to improve economic well-being by creating, incubating and activating new ways of manufacturing and distributing products and services. We can now build digital back and middle office operations that are far more effective than those based on legacy systems, helping clients to leapfrog traditional competitors.”
