Listed in PR Week’s 29 under 29 list and named one of ‘the brightest young social media communicators’ in the UK, Rich Leigh is the founder and director of award-winning PR agency Radioactive PR and talent agency Radioactive Talent. He wrote the #1 best-seller ‘Myths of PR’, and founded the UK’s #1 PR blog PRexamples.com in 2012, before selling it in 2018. In 2018, Radioactive PR became one of the first companies in the UK to adopt a 4 day work week, without cutting pay.
