Anna loves to interact and build relationships with people. Coming from a very large family, she is a natural extrovert with great respect and admiration for people. Anna’s intuitive and caring nature helps her to build great relationships with people at all levels of the organisation. Anna began her career as a childcare provider working with children and teenagers who were under the care of the State.

During her 13 year airline career, she travelled all five continents alone and with friends for work and personal adventure. She also took workplace sabbaticals with Babcock & Brown, Doyle Hotel Group and UCD to experience diverse workplace environments.
Anna is a firm believer in how career success contributes to overall happiness and how irrespective of the working environment, employees’ needs such for belonging and being valued are pervasive.

Anna Rowan has provided both bespoke and ‘off the shelf’ leadership training for Accenture since 2012. The feedback from the workshops that Anna delivers is continuously excellent. She has been requested many times by our client to deliver leadership training and has the right blend of expertise but also the rigour and ability to challenge status quos and fixed mindsets.
The IMI worked with Anna Rowan and her team to roll out our new internal Performance & Development Review approach and process. We found Anna and the team extremely professional, open and attentive. They listened to our needs and easily translated them into a series of practical tools and workshops.

Through ice-breakers and other group exercises Anna rapidly broke down barriers and got the whole group actively engaged to the point where team members engaged fully, collaborated, and made suggestions for improvements and changes that matched perfectly with the organisation’s goals.

I worked with Anna when I was at a career crossroads in my life. She very much helped me take stock; see the wood from the trees; fully believe in myself and facilitated me in coming to my own decisions. Anna is insightful, intuitive and has a lovely personal touch.
…we value Anna’s insightful, grounded approach connecting effortlessly with team members across all layers and functions of our organisation. Feedback from participants of her programmes is that the experience is always very valuable, pragmatic and through provoking.
