Richard Newman

Business Presentation Specialist, Communication and Professional Development Expert

Richard has been working with advanced communication skills and body language since 1995, as a trainer, presenter and coach.

In the past few years his team have helped clients gain an additional £1.6 billion of business, through presentation, sales pitch, personal impact and communication training.

His team have trained over 20,000 people, from 45 countries, across Europe, America and the Middle East, boosting their results in business presentations, sales-pitches, negotiations and media interviews.

Working for the McLaren Formula 1 racing team for 5 years, he gave over 1000 presentations and hosted VIP meetings for executives from global companies around the world.

On his path to becoming a body language trainer he spent 3 years training as a professional actor in London and worked in TV and theatre across Europe.

He also spent 6 months teaching English as a foreign language (T.E.F.L.) living with Tibetan monks in the Himalayas. They spoke no English when he arrived, so he had to find a way to use body language and voice tone to communicate and teach them.

Clients include the UK Parliament, FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 Companies and international celebrities.

He has presented master-class events across Europe, the Middle East and America, coaching clients in Dubai, Vienna, Milan, Atlanta, Dublin, Paris, Munich, Chicago, Orlando, Madrid, Faro, Cincinnati, Prague and all over the UK.

Richard has worked with both 20th Century Fox and Warner Brothers to promote their TV shows ‘Lie To Me’ and ‘The Mentalist’ in national radio and press interviews.

Richard’s book, The ‘It’ Factor, has just been published, available on Amazon.
