He worked as the National Education officer for the I.I.E. for two years and in the area of business improvement in large manufacturing companies for almost twenty. His primary remit was on increasing efficiencies, changing organisational architecture and involving people in the change process. He was a member of the global health and safety team with the toy manufacturer, Hasbro. Having held management roles in multi-national businesses, he earned his MBA in 2002. He then qualified as a trainer with the IITD in 2007. He has also lectured in Waterford Institute of Technology, now SETU, on their management degree program.

Richard is a key note speaker every year at conferences in Ireland and the UK. His focus is on the role mental health plays in peoples personal lives and in organisations. He is a registered and insured clinical hypno-psychoanalyst and opened a private clinic in 2005. In his clinic he helps children and adults tackle a large range of disorders.
