Richard McPartland

I’m Richard. If you’re looking to find out who I am and what I do, you’re in the right place.

I’m a communicator at heart. Adept at understanding business drivers and user needs, setting strategy, and then producing the content and functionality that delivers - in the right way, at the right time and in the right place.

I can now draw on over two decades’ experience, through a varied set of roles where words like ‘writer’, ‘journalist’, ‘editor’, ‘content’, ‘communications’. ‘marketing’, ‘digital’ or ‘transformation’ feature.

In short, I can put words to work, deploy them with precision, and then measure and refine to get results.
