Graeme Cowan helps leaders and teams to be more caring, resilient, and growth-oriented. In his earlier career he worked in senior leadership positions with Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, and AT Kearney.

In 2000 he went through a 5 year episode of depression that his psychiatrist described as the worst he had ever treated. He emerged from this crisis with a different view about how we can increase our resilience, mood, and performance. He is described by the Australian Financial Review as a “workplace mental wellbeing expert”. He is the author of 4 books, including the internationally acclaimed BACK FROM THE BRINK, which has a testimonial from the former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, and which has just become a best seller in China

He attributes his writing prowess to religiously reading every edition of Rugby League Week when he was in Year 12. Graeme also helped to start R U OK? in 2009, and is an active Board Director.

David Ploenges, People, Safety, and Culture Director - Serco
Many of our leaders said that your presentation was the best they had seen at a Partner's meeting - and we have had some great speakers - so that says it all. I would recommend you to any CEO who is interested in the sustainable success of their leadership team.

Gary McDiarmid, CEO - Russel McVeagh (New Zealand's largest law firm)
Graeme has a compelling story that should be heard! He was a keynote speaker at a recent series of team forums we held around the country with great feedback from the team. A few quotable quotes...
