DEBORAH ROWLAND

I bring what I believe is a helpful combination of practical experience, original insight and ground-breaking research to the leadership of change. I have personally led change in global organisations such as BBC Worldwide, Gucci Group, PepsiCo and Shell. Across my consulting career I have pioneered two major inquiries into leading change sustainably, which have been extensively published and whose insights inform the reality of organisational transformation around the world. I enjoy spreading these insights about how to lead large complex change by speaking, teaching, and writing in the field. I have authored Still Moving: How to Lead Mindful Change (Wiley, 2017) and co-authored with Professor Malcolm Higgs Sustaining Change: Leadership That Works (Wiley, 2008). The story of my latest book Still Moving now inspires the Still Moving change consulting practice where I act as a change coach, or, “Sherpa”, to CEOs and major institutional leaders in all walks of life.

I tend to my own inner source via regular yoga, meditation, art gazing, painting and walks in nature, in particular along the spectacular coastal paths of Southern Cornwall.
