Rowan Gates

Rowan has had over 20 years experience in consulting and Human Resource Development. This experience has been gained in a variety of roles, both as an internal practitioner and an external consultant. These experiences have been with a broad range of industries and in a number of different organisational and geographical cultures.

Working with a number of global companies, with particular recent focus on the Asia-Pacific, Sub Continent and Australian region, Rowan has worked and consulted in over 20 different countries. He specialises in the cultural adaption of global/corporate programs for effective cross- cultural and local learning.

Recent Projects include

  • Cultural modification and facilitation of corporate leadership and management programs to teams across the Asia Pacific region for a global IT company. This work also included the role of lead consultant in the co-facilitating, teaming and coaching of internal facilitators.
  • Designing and delivering the annual top management team conference for a major sports channel in the Asia-Pacific region. The conference and workshops successfully achieved the beginning of the transition for a “siloed” collection of JVs to a “collaborative” cohesive team of partnerships focussed on a shared and agreed vision.
  • Created an divisional wide intervention for a leading Bank, aimed at building a strong shared culture and approach to how their senior managers interfaced and sold to their high net worth customers. The intervention was aimed at changing the current style of “product flogging” to that of a consultative approach that uncovered and developed the customers real needs.

On the personal side, Rowan enjoys life in Perth, Western Australia where he lives with his wife and two children. He is a keen beach goer, and “tries” to run and swim daily when he is not travelling. He also can be frequently found on the golf course and the tennis court
