About

Welcome to richardirvine.com, the home base for my communication and digital consultancy, founded in February 2018.

Things I strongly believe:

  • We should find the simplest, clearest message possible. And start from there
  • Plain language, with no jargon or buzzwords, wins every time
  • Two ears, one mouth is the correct ratio for all communication

Happy to do shirts with collars or lanyard-chic, it’s your call.

I’m 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 extremely 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.


Life-wise, my family and friends are more important than anything for me. After that it’s cricket, cycling, reading, playing guitar, binging Scandi crime drama and writing my newsletter.
