By the way, we’re almost at the end of Season 2 – so please tweet us @sanebox and let us know who you’d like to see us speak to in Season 3!
First a little background on Richard – he’s an IT business growth expert, working with the owners of IT businesses to help them free up their time, concentrate on doing what is important and making more money.

Other interests include promoting environmentalism and sustainability, and he’s also quite the fan of comic books.
