Rowen Bainbridge

Chair of Trustees

Following an international career in industry which included being the chief executive of a plc, Rowen is now a management consultant helping boards and executive teams in public, private and not-for-profit organisations with their leadership and talent agendas. He is passionate about the importance of authentic leadership and the impact unconscious leadership can have on organisations and in the communities in which they operate.

Rowen has three children, a daughter (20) and two teenage sons (15 and 17), and has been involved with abandofbrothers since 2009, initially as a mentor and then from 2013 as a trustee. He believes that if you cannot tell your story, your story tells you, and that everyone, young men and older men alike, can create a world of community and connection by better understanding who they are and what is behind the choices that they make. He has seen that the programmes we run offer men an opportunity to become more authentic and develop deeper trust-based relationships with their families and communities.

By connecting young men with older men we can create a more positive society through inter-generational leadership, reducing crime, increasing social mobility and making sustainable communities.
