Graeme Cowan helps leaders and teams to be more caring, resilient and productive. 

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 was recently described by the Australian Financial Review as a “workplace mental wellness 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 been launched into China.

Graeme also helped to start R U OK? in 2009, and is an active Board Director.

Your presentation on the “7 Rituals of the Resilient Leader” was very interactive, thought provoking, and well received. In particular, the practical tips on how to help those around us in the Red Zone, and ways to maintaining your own Green Zone, were of great value. I am delighted that you will be able to assist us in our remaining 4 conferences scheduled this financial year.
