The Team

We are a group of like-minded marketing, brand and event solution specialists that think. Creatively and yet practically. 

The Paradise Experiment was founded in 2012 by Richard Foulkes.


With nearly thirty years working for one of the world’s leading event and experience companies, Richard has helped some of the world’s most loved brands deliver their messages to the world. 

His approach to effective marketing communications has found him helping clients from a creative perspective, through production, logistics and travel to client services and commercial management.  His unique insight in how to get things done in an affordable manner while delivering a strong ROI has helped many clients exceed their expectations of their live marketing experiences.  And, they always have had some fun along the way.

Richard was the 2010 President of the UK Chapter of the International Special Event Society (ISES now ILEA...) and then on the Chicago based ISES International Board of Governors.  

In 2012, he was awarded the Meeting and Incentive Travel Magazine Personality of the Year Award, although he’s a little embarrassed about it.
