Richard was the CEO and founder of Totem Learning, an award winning Serious Game and simulation developer for business and management soft skills training. His extensive background in sales and people management going back over 20 years with companies such as Telex and Decision Systems and ZNAX helped him shape Totem Learning into a truly wonderful and unique place to work. Richard saw the progression of the IT industry transition from requiring a computer the size of a whole room to the powerful smart phones we have today and adapted every step of the way, keeping up to date, whether it was PCs, phones or the latest VR headsets.
Richard Smith will be much missed by all our Partners in the FWF, not only for his wise counsel and unrivalled expertise for all things in the digital world, but for a man who went out of his way to help others. As I have known him over the last several decades, he mentored new arrivals to the industry that he so enjoyed being a part of. I will also miss his integrity and honesty, not often in evidence in an industry that seems to work at unprecedented levels of stress and technical rivalry. Richard was a an honest man down to his fingertips, not many can say that and I am pleased he brought so much and taught so much of his values to others. I trust we all remember that every time we think of him.
