Strategy Director, Quietroom

Rhys is strategy director at Quietroom. He’s a highly experienced writer, trainer and communication strategist, and a lively and engaging conference speaker. He’s on a mission to make pensions more meaningful to more people. He believes we’ll only be able to make good decisions about the future when more people can join the conversation. His first job at Quietroom when he joined as its first employee in 2006 was researching the implications of A-Day (spoiler alert: simplification didn’t seem to make things simpler). In 2013, he helped Whitbread become one of the first employers to automatically enrol, leading to some of the lowest opt-out figures in the industry, and a 17-fold increase in the rate of people joining the scheme voluntarily. This year, he’s worked with two new start-ups entering the world of pensions, as well as giving strategic advice to the Lloyds Banking Group schemes.
