Richard Mulholland started his career as a Rock music roadie, operating lights for bands such as Iron Maiden and Def Leppard.
Today he’s the owner of Missing Link, South Africa’s largest presentation firm.
Mulholland, a highly regarded speaker, regularly addresses South Africa’s largest corporations and guest lectures on courses for The Cape Graduate School of Business (GSB), and the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS).
He’s a board game junkie.
And he reckons you should be one too, if you want your business to succeed.
