Gossip Guru, Media Personality and King of the Jungle!

Profile

From Gossip Guru to King of the Jungle, Richard Reid is never at a loss for words...or a laugh!

There hasn’t been a time over the last decade Richard hasn’t been on our TV screens. While he brightened our mornings with all the goss for 8 years on Channel Nine’s Today, he found time to team up with Scott Cam for the heartfelt renovation series Domestic Blitz. On Season Four of Celebrity Apprentice, he made it to the Top 4 before hearing the dreaded words “You’re Fired,” but bounced back in a big way on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, surviving snakes, scorpions and electrocution to be crowned 'King of the Jungle.' In other words, Richard is a survivor! These days you can watch him trade quips with Sarah Harris on Studio Ten.

Current Work:

Richard is also an Ambassador for Beyond Blue and has the ability to connect with people on a very personal level. Having experienced the cruelty of bullying first hand, Richard relates with those who've faced with adversity. With his unique take on life, he speaks candidly about overcoming his battles with depression, alcohol-abuse and the heart-ache of watching his mum struggle with bi-polar and dementia.

Feedback
Richard Reid is the consummate professional. We booked Richard as the MC for the Schwarzkopf Professional Hair Expo Awards Gala (The Oscars of the Hair Industry), and it was the best choice we could have made - he took the time to understand our audience and our industry and infused skill with humour to deliver a wonderful night. So much so, that we booked him for the same event for the following year - this never happens! We always change MC’s each year, but Richard was so popular with our audience, we just knew we had to have him back! This is by far the best endorsement we can give and is a testament to his talent.

Richard Reid was engaged as a guest speaker and co-MC of our 10th Anniversary Masquerade Ball. Richard’s larger-than-life personality enabled our guests to delve into the world of all things famous and get an insight into the gossip of Hollywood. He was an dazzling story teller who had the perfect mix of humour and professionalism. Our guests were enthralled with his cheeky wit and sharp intellect. Richard was more than obliging and showed genuine interest to the constant string of demands made of his time when chatting with guests, particularly their requests to have photos taken with him. We host regular business networking events throughout the year each with a celebrity guest speaker and 250+ attendees, yet the amount of positive feedback from our night with Richard has been nothing short of outstanding.

Richard is an enthusiastic, energetic MC, who embraces and engages the audience. Richard was a pleasure to work with, provided feedback and worked with us, the organisers, to ensure a smooth event. Richard was diligent and professional at all times and happy to have photos with our guests in the break time.

Gift & Life Instyle Awards Gala

We engaged with the fabulous Richard Reid to host a series of Celebrity Trivia nights in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Rumour had it that he was a total hit with the clients of Woman’s Day, NW, OK! and TV Week in 2015 and he proved to be nothing short of exceptional in 2016! Working with Richard was an absolute pleasure. From the get go, Richard is one of those people it’s so easy to be around. Warm and vivacious, he’s a right cracker and there is never a dull moment. Friendly and engaging, he really brought the events to life and each one was full of laughs thanks to his quick wit and charm. His energy extended throughout the evening, engaging with guests and welcoming fan photo opportunities with all attendees. Richard was professional and enthusiastic in his approach, a true crowd pleaser who undeniably contributed to the success of our events.

Richard Reid knows how to put the FUN into a fundraising event. As MC and international guest of FashionLab 2015 & 2016, Richard helped vital raise funds and awareness for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer and leading breast cancer research at the Garvan Institute. Entertaining, engaging, and the ultimate professional, Richard is a gem to work with, and both guests and sponsors loved his openness and great sense of charity.
