Richard BradyC Psychol, AFBPsS

Founder & Executive Chairman


Richard Brady’s career reflects a deep commitment to understanding and nurturing human talent. As the Founder and Executive Chairman of Mentis Talent Technologies Pte. Ltd., he leverages his extensive knowledge and practitioner experience in organizational psychology, personality profiling, competency development, and organizational behavior. His work is enhanced by a strong foundation in talent technology, promoting inclusive environments that celebrate diversity and aim to eliminate marginalization.

Richard’s early fascination with psychology was kindled by his mother’s collection of books on Freud and Adler. Overcoming early life trauma, he developed a keen insight into human resilience and the impact of purposeful work. His professional training includes advanced assessment of neurological function and a comprehensive understanding of many different working environments, from offices, factories, farms, laboratories to retail stores.

Richard’s global journey, spanning the Middle East and Southeast Asia over the last twenty years, has enriched his perspective on cultural differences in life philosophy, psychology and talent development. His experience includes consulting with many multinational companies, NGOs, and government organizations. With over three decades in the field, he has become an expert in competency prediction, personality
profiling, and executive assessment. He has led talented teams to supervise more than two million hiring and career advancement evaluations from screening tests to in-depth interviews and simulations with C-Suite candidates.

Earlier in his career, Richard worked as a Rehabilitation Psychologist with the UK’s Department for Work & Pensions and then as a Senior Psychologist with the Ministry of Defence (Navy). His research during this period focused on psychological profiling and training effectiveness and providing certification of Personnel Selection Officers and Board Assessors at the Admiralty Interview Board. Before founding Mentis in
2003, he was a principal psychologist with two consulting firms for over five years.
At Mentis, Richard has been instrumental in pioneering talent technology innovations to benefit clients and partner organizations; challenging Western biases in traditional assessment models and promoting a culturally-inclusive understanding of personality and competency. Academically, he holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Birmingham and a master’s degree in occupational psychology from Birkbeck, University of London. For the past several years, he was a Doctoral Researcher at Goldsmiths, University of London, and he is
commencing a PhD in Technology Enhanced Learning at the University of Lancaster.
A Chartered Occupational Psychologist, Richard is an Associate Fellow of The British Psychological Society and is registered as a Practitioner Psychologist with the Health & Care Professions Council – the UK equivalent of ‘Board-certified psychologist’. His research interests focus on overcoming workplace trauma, integrating various healing modalities and philosophical teachings. His expertise in mindfulness and compassion-based therapy, enriched by his experience in Asia, informs his integrative approach to organizational psychology. Recognized as a mentor and leadership coach, Richard has been affiliated with several prestigious business schools globally including London Business School, Thunderbird Global School of Management and IMD. He is known for his ethical and culturally sensitive applications of competency-based learning and growth; supported by technology. As a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, his contributions extend beyond his profession, demonstrating his commitment as a compassionate innovator and mentor.
