About Dianne Rowe

Dianne Rowe

Dianne first became interested and trained as a Professional Coach and Mentor during her time as a Principal. With a Masters Degree in Educational Administration and Policy, Dianne’s successful career as an educational leader has spanned 17 years. 15 of those in Melbourne, Australia and the last two, as Lower School Principal of an International IB World School in Surrey, England.

During her time as Principal in the Victorian Education System, Dianne was awarded a number of grants to pursue international studies. As a recipient of a ‘High Performing Principal’ Grant, Dianne was able to investigate fast tracking options for talented and aspiring principals in the UK system. Other grants enabled Dianne to complete studies in New Zealand, Singapore and Thailand.

Dianne’s school was one of the first 18 schools to be accredited with an outstanding ‘Performance and Development Culture’ using Sergiovanni’s Model of Transformational Leadership. Her school was also one of a small handful of Victorian schools to introduce, and be accredited, as an International Baccalaureate (IB) school, delivered in parallel to State curriculum requirements.

After a major career change in 2009, Dianne left her career in education and joined Rowe & Co Recruitment to lead growth with strategic planning – focusing on new business development and marketing strategies.

Over time it was only natural that coaching became included as part of Dianne’s repertoire as a recruiter, so Global Coach for Engineers was created under the Rowe & Co umbrella - and Dianne hasn’t looked back since!
