After Dinner Speaker: Richard Reed

A co-founder of Innocent Drinks, Richard Reed formed a company based on very simple principles of fresh fruit, smoothies and vegetable pots. From this modest beginning, Reed has created an international company and a globally recognised brand. A business guru and wonderfully adept after dinner speaker, Richard is a terrific choice for any corporate or social event.

Describing how Innocent came to be during his talks as an after dinner speaker, Richard tells audiences of setting up the firm with two friends from university. After a rigorous six months of testing, Innocent Drinks was launched at a music festival to huge acclaim. The popularity of the drinks led Richard and his co-founders to leave their jobs the very next day.

Just over a decade later and Innocent Drinks is a business that makes hundreds of millions of pounds a year. Reed’s success was highlighted with Coca Cola buying the three co-founders stakes in the company in 2013. Richard enjoys telling his story of success based on simple foundations, with an ethos of hard work and creativity as a basis of the firm’s growth.
