Richard in a nutshell:  8 snapshots of my story

about richard medcalf

I'm kind of what you get when you blend a McKinsey consultant, an entrepreneur and a slightly unorthodox pastor!

Academically, I have a First Class Masters Degree from Oxford University, where I attained the third-highest mark in my year.

I spent 10 years in a renowned strategy consultancy firm, where I became the youngest ever promotion to Partner.

I spent another 10 years in a Fortune 100 technology giant, helping businesses harness the strategic benefits of technology.

My most recent corporate role? “Change catalyst” deployed by our CEO develop joint business opportunities and strategic relationships with top partners.

I am also a licensed lay minister in the Anglican church. I believe we have to be changed ourselves before we can change the world.

I'm an Englishman living in France. I came here in 1999 for one year, and somehow managed to end up staying! I have a wonderful wife and two great kids.

Play me guitar-based rock music, show me science-fiction films, or feed me spicy food if you want me happy.
