Rick has post graduate degrees in Executive Leadership, Business Management and Fire Engineering with Diplomas in Education and Public Safety. He is a retired Fire & Rescue NSW Superintendent with extensive experience managing operational zones, business units and Incident Management Teams for large and complex incidents as well as working on secondment at various times for the NSW Department of Corrective Services and Australian Federal Police.

Rick is a keen observer and student of human behaviour and personality types and the effects of work and personal environments on both the individual and groups. He has a wealth of personal experience in managing people in stressful environments, the workplace and in his personal life.

The complexity of mental health and its links to his years of observing and managing people have driven him to become a “mental health first aid trainer” in the belief that he can provide valuable and experiential assistance to those volunteering to become “mental health first aiders”.
