About Encyclomedia

Encyclomedia is the website and blog of Richard O'Brien

I have over 20 years' experience in senior communications, commercial and strategic roles in some of the biggest global media and entertainment companies such as Universal Music, EMI and PolyGram. I've been privileged to have had a front row seat for over two decades now at the very heart of the profound changes in media that digital technology has driven.

This website is about insight and analysis on today's media and culture and perspectives on what's really going on behind the headlines and news with plenty of lateral thinking, future scanning and understanding and appreciation of the intersection of business, politics and culture.

Get in touch to find out how I can help your media business and make your ideas happen at You can follow me at @encyclomediauk, sign up for the monthly Encyclomedia newsletter and connect on LinkedIn.
