Richard Noble OBE specialises in developing high-risk ventures and brought the World Land Speed Record back to Britain in 1983 with the Thrust2 programme. He now runs The Blood Hound Project, which aims to inspire the next generation to explore and get involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Against a background of today’s low-risk culture, Richard Noble specialises in developing high-risk ventures. Obviously, not all of them can be successful, but the Thrust2 programme which brought the World Land Speed Record back to Britain in 1983 and the Thrust SSC first ever supersonic land speed record programme are the best known.
Richard Noble’s other projects include the ARV Super2 light aircraft, the Atlantic Sprinter Blue Riband contender, Programme Funding, an original television funding company, Farnborough Aircraft, the first distributed travel air taxi aircraft and currently the Mach 1.4 Bloodhound SSC project the latest in the long line of Land Speed Record cars now being run through 3,600 UK schools.
Richard believes that working in this high-risk environment can never be seen as secure or comfortable, for the financial horizon is often just days away and the company depends on its wits to survive. Richard is an excellent speaker with a wealth of experience as evidence to his abilities. He is both insightful and entertaining.
