Our Speaker is:
Richard Newman - CEO of Ultimate
Richard has been running or helping to run businesses for over 20 years and is grateful to have had the opportunity to work with some inspiring people and organisations; some you'll never have heard of but employ hundreds of thousands of people, others are household names like Microsoft, P&G, Siemens, and Sony.
His role at Ultimate is to help set the strategic direction of the company, add maximum value to their clients, to ensure they have the right team that are motivated and aligned, and to drive overall performance.
Since joining Ultimate as a partner and CEO in September 2021, Richard has had a fun journey so far, especially as a result of the pandemic and the changes that came with it. In 2022/23 the business increased revenues by 20%. Even more rewarding is the phenomenal team and the human first digital products, brands, and campaigns delivered for their clients.
Prior to Ultimate, Richard was on the board of a company with revenues of £1billion, a partner at global executive search firm, and for over a decade, a partner at a global sales performance organisation, which gave him the opportunity to travel all over the world. He doesn’t intend to stop anytime soon!
Please arrive at the front entrance of Manchester Central Library from 9.30am for open networking over a light breakfast (bacon/sausage/vegetarian roll or pastry served with tea & coffee), then speaker at 10am. The event will close by 11.30am following a Q&A session and further networking.
