Graeme Bowman has spent years researching the root causes of complex global problems and their relationship to patriarchy. This lead him to create the simple model, Pozzy to Cozzy, which explores the current transformation of our human operating system, from one based on the pyramid (Pozzy) to one based on the circle (Cozzy).
Graeme’s presentation style builds upon three decades of experience as a writer, speaker, performer and Master of Ceremonies in the field of corporate communications and comedy, across all industries. His satirical approach has often seen him lampooning the absurdities of society, corporate life and government bureaucracies.
Graeme has appeared at hundreds of conferences, awards dinners, product launches, special events and leadership retreats. Past clients include IBM, Canon, Pfizer, Glaxo, Coca Cola, Shell and many professional associations and government bodies.
