Welcome to richardirvine.com, the home base for my fledgling one-person digital consulting outfit, founded in February 2018.
My expertise is as a communications, public relations and issue management person that does digital and social media, not yer buzzword / funky eyewear kind of carry on.
This is me giving it a crack out on my own after working for Fonterra, New Zealand Cricket and Telecom (Spark) in communications, media and digital and social media.
It makes me proud to have contributed to three New Zealand-headquartered organisations, because this is the best country in the world.
I’ve been incredibly lucky to be part of some of the country’s best corporate affairs teams, negotiating some extremely public, high pressure and challenging issues along the way. I’d really love to put that experience to work for your organisation.
Crisis comms really spins my wheels, and I’ve helped communicate through the Christchurch earthquakes, Abstain brouhahah (remember that?!?), Yahoo email and network outages, this last innings collapse (woe!), bobby calves, water issues and vendor payments.
Life-wise, my family and friends are more important than anything for me. After that it’s cricket, cycling, reading, listening to music, playing guitar, binging Scandi crime drama and sleeping.
