Mr Rob Ryan
Academic Board of Governance Member & Associate Consultant
He has fourteen years experience in consulting to a variety of organisations on capacity building projects involving managing change, transitions and leadership development. He has demonstrated expertise in design and delivery of professional development programs.
Rob’s approach is informed by his earlier extensive experience working in professional and voluntary roles in the education sector, particularly in secondary schools. Professional roles in schools have included senior teacher and administrator (curriculum and professional development). He has also worked in two peak education associations in workplace welfare and professional development roles, and recently has been involved in the formation of the School Governance Network.
He has provided customised development programs to leadership teams in secondary schools, including extended coaching roles with Principals. He has also been very active as a volunteer in State education over the past fourteen years in school council roles, and as
school council president has worked successfully with three Principals in a primary and a secondary school.
Rob has ten years of senior management experience in a University service organisation, including the role of CEO. He has high level skills in designing and leading large change projects and guiding individuals and teams in their professional development (e.g. board
chairs, leadership teams and other work groups).
He has supported many organisations in reviewing and developing their leadership roles, governance structures and processes and he has held leadership roles in many not-for- profit organisations.
