Dick de Rijk

Dick is an inspirational speaker on games, gameshows and the secrets of creativity, based on his extraordinary success as the creator of global format hits including “Deal or No Deal”.

After working as a creative executive in the advertising and gaming industries, Dick partnered in 1999 with Joop van den Ende, creating some instant TV-successes in Holland. A year later he formed a creative team with John de Mol specializing in “global TV-formats”, resulting in a series of shows that travelled around the world.

In 2004, Dick signed an exclusive first-look partnership with Endemol International which resulted in numerous worldwide format successes. In 2007, three of Endemol’s top-5 format properties were created by Dick de Rijk, including their number one blockbuster – on air in some 150 countries – Deal Or No Deal.

Under his alliance with Red Arrow International (since September 2009) Dick is based out his offices in Hilversum, Netherlands. His latest development “You Deserve It” was picked up by ABC – and is currently being produced in China and South Africa among other territories. This show is his 4th big prime time show, sold to the “big four” (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX) in the USA.
