Public speaking, MC’ing and Media Commentary

Richie is a sought-after public speaker across topics ranging from drug and alcohol abuse, sexual consent and mental health.

His experiences working with professional and amateur fighters, and in social and community advocacy, has given Richie a real insight into the issues facing the New Zealanders who generally are hardest to reach – young people, people who struggle with homelessness, the justice system, violence and anger issues, mental health issues and drug and alcohol dependency. Bringing his special mix of raw honesty and personal credibility, he connects with audiences from corporates to prison inmates.

Richie is available as an experienced MC, speaker and media commentator.

Richie has appeared regularly on Newstalk ZB’s Nutters Club, TVNZ’s Breakfast and is often approached for comment by news organisations on topical issues.

“His presentation did not skirt around any issues, rather it offered a realistic and meaningful depiction of the current state of our society. To speak about such controversial and uncomfortable topics and receive nothing but praise from your audience is truly remarkable.”
