About Skip Bowman

Skip Bowman is an inspirational keynote speaker, writer, and facilitator on transformational global leadership. With a strong foundation in Organizational Psychology and research, his programs catalyze growth, inspire cultural change and drive global collaboration. Skip is the founder and chief transformational officer in Global Mindset, a consultant company dedicated to bringing inclusive leadership approaches to global companies. As all jobs become more global, every member of a company needs a global mindset: the ability to be confident and competent with the unknown and unusual. Skip believes that the cognitive and emotional skills of a global mindset not only create inclusive workplaces, they also enable people to deal with and find innovative solutions in complex, ambiguous, and fast-paced work environments. When you can manage and thrive in complex cultural settings, you also have the skills to succeed in complex business settings. In this way, having a global mindset is correlated with having a more developed and sophisticated mind.

Skip coaches senior leaders and their teams in how to achieve transformations in business and culture through principles of “contagious change”: rapid, effective and sustainable change that is positive and self-catalyzing. His success builds on a combination of creating a powerful vision, designing creative concepts customized to the client, and fun to learn and use, as well as an ability to bring stakeholders from across the organization together in a strong coalition for change.

Globally savvy, he speaks and leads workshops in Europe, North America, Africa and the Middle East. He uses two working languages (Danish & English). He grew up in Perth, Australia and has spent the majority of the last 25 years based in Europe. 

Skip’s approach is based on 4 values: Challenge, Explore, Create, and Inspire. For him, the key mission of leadership and organizational development is to inspire change with original training and consulting methods that touch the hearts and minds of leaders, helping them to see and feel the reality of global challenges, and find the courage to think and act differently. Skip’s mission is “to make global organizations safe or great work”.

During the last 20 years, Skip has worked with clients like Danfoss, Siemens, Rambøll, BHP Billiton, Brüel & Kjær, HBM, GN, Ericsson, Nestlé, Mölnlycke, VELUX, SimCorp, and Tryg.
