Richard Stokes

Global Head of Content

Wavemaker Global

Richard is responsible for the global content offering at Wavemaker, bringing together over 750

experts from around the world to offer bespoke content solutions for clients. He has a diverse

background across media and advertising, having worked in both full service and media owner

roles in the UK, setting up digital and content divisions for Publicis in Poland, before joining

Maxus’ global board as Chief Development Officer in 2013.


He is an active member of the media community, featuring regularly in the press and speaking

at events. Always happy to offer a pointed perspective on the complexity of the industry and the

value of strong organizational culture.


He's traveled widely for both work and pleasure, but the visit to Banff will be his first trip to

Canada. Which seems like a case of better late than never!

Speaking on: Integrating Brands into the Content Ecosystem; Breakfast with a Decision Maker (sign up required)

At the Banff Media Festival, we met with Netflix and took a ride up Sulphur Mountain on the gondola. That’s where we made the pitch.
