A unique comic blend.

Profile

Graeme's speciality lies at the intersection of comedy, creativity and communication.

He has over 30 years' experience in communication and entertainment, and has a keen focus on helping clients communicate creatively about complex issues. As a writer and hoax speaker (corporate imposter), he has often lampooned the absurdities of society, corporate life and government bureaucracies.

Graeme's recent and extensive research into the problems associated with social, environmental and economic sustainability, gave rise to the emerging not-for-profit online community, Wise Women Will Save the World, of which he is Co-Founder.

In early 2015, Graeme produced, wrote and performed in a small-scale, experimental production called Patriarchy: Where Would We Be Without You? This production blended a visual arts installation with poetry, humour and performance, all woven into a series of satirical sketches.

For several years, Graeme was an accredited Lateral Thinking Trainer, and also has experience as a Six Thinking Hats facilitator, motivating people to challenge their current thinking style. He has contributed to many corporate and training videos as an actor, presenter, writer or producer.

Past clients have ranged across corporate, association, academic, government and community sectors and include names such as: IBM, Canon, Pfizer, KPMG, Coca Cola, Shell, CSIRO, Monash University, Australian Synchrotron, Red Cross, Wesley Mission, Multiple Sclerosis Society, National Disability Services, Clean Energy Council, Waste Management Association of Australia, United Nations Association of Australia, New Zealand Aged Care Association, Australasian Society of Cardiac and Thoracic Surgeons. Equipped with a Bachelor of Science and Diploma of Education, Graeme is noted for the amount of research and original writing that goes into his performances.

From Possy to Cozzy: Freeing Our Planet from Patriarchy

Like a rapidly growing number of people, Graeme Bowman has a strong interest in speeding up the transition from a patriarchal to non-patriarchal ‘human operating system’. His contribution to this process includes the development of an engaging, interactive presentation that creatively explores:
• the systemic root cause of the world's ‘wicked problems’: the archaic worldview that underpins patriarchy
• societal and organisational trends that are moving us away from a ‘command and control' form of leadership
• the advantages to an organisation of being seen as part of this progressive trend towards a more sustainable, equitable and ethical ‘human operating system’.

This content-rich presentation not only encapsulates Graeme’s unique and original IP, but also reflects his interpretation of deep insights from leading thinkers such as: Peter Senge, Noam Chomsky, John Elkington, Charles Eisenstein, Margaret Wheatley, Gloria Steinem, Naomi Klein and Arianna Huffington.

At the heart of the presentation is a simple, visual, memorable model that delivers a quick succession of ‘Ah-hah’ moments. 'Pozzy' is Graeme’s term for P-OS or Pyramid Operating System (today’s dominant and dysfunctional way of being, living and working). 'Cozzy' stands for C-OS or Circle Operating System (a new, more nurturing way of leading and functioning, one that has been struggling to emerge for some time, but which is now poised to expand exponentially).

From Pozzy to Cozzy is aimed at audiences at the senior executive level, across corporate, government and civil society sectors. In particular, this interactive presentation suits groups who have come to the conclusion that, both within and beyond their organisation, a holistic and collaborative approach is required to deal with deep, systemic problems.

Key Outcome: An increased willingness and capacity to have 'Courageous Conversations' around notions of privilege, diversity, ethical leadership and sustainable business.
