Who am I ?

Romi Bowen

Developing your potential for success in work and relationships


I have had a  long career in the public and voluntary sector first as a  counsellor working with women who had been raped or sexually abused, then as a qualified social worker rising to becoming a Strategic Director of Children’s and Adults Services. I contributed to these sectors for over 40 years.

I had a track record of creating organisational cultures in which practitioners were positive, confident, disciplined and client focused. My teams were empowered to deliver quality services and to take responsibility for creating good outcomes. Since retiring from this role, I have worked as a coach developing the next generation of leaders. Over the past 10 years I have coached, provided consultancy and improvement advice and technically assessed over 150 candidates for senior positions. Additionally, I provide, coaching and consultancy  to  Frontline, England’s largest social work charity.
