Speaker Profile

About Richard Noble

Richard Noble held the land speed record for over ten years with Thrust2. He then led the team developing the first ever supersonic land speed car, the 100,000HP ThrustSSC, effectively retaining his own world record. He is now the project director of the BloodhoundSSC, an attempt to break the 1,000mph barrier.

Working with aircraft engine manufacturers, Richard conceived, planned and drove the original 30,000 HP Trust2 in which he first achieved the World Land Speed record for Britain.

He has received numerous awards including the RAC Diamond Jubilee Trophy, the FISA World Land Speed Trophy, the Guinness Hall of Fame Medal, the Sir Henry Royce Medal and an OBE.

An entrepreneur and pilot, Richard has worked on businesses and projects on land, sea and air, all marked by his personal drive, determination, and ethos that risk should be embraced, not avoided. He is an inspiring speaker. His emphasis is on leadership, teamwork and motivation, working against established, ingrained methods and assumptions.

He believes that high-risk yields high rewards, in business as in life risk should be calculated and not reckless.
