About this event

As the former head of business development for the creative agency BBH, Rich worked on many of the world's leading brands and has been instrumental in bringing countless new and exciting concepts to market. In 2010, with a strong personal interest in mindfulness, Rich got together with meditation expert, Andy Puddicombe, to launch Headspace. The mission was simple: to demystify meditation and to make it accesible, relevant and creatively engaging. Based in Santa Monica, California, Rich is the driving force behind many of Headspace's most exciting innovations: from partnerships with brands like Virgin and Selfridges, to the recent launch of Headspace Meditation Pods with local architects, Oyler Wu. Rich continue to work tirelessly in the pursuit of Headspace's vision: to improve the health and happiness of the world.
