Owen is a Leadership Advisor in the Auckland region, working primarily with beginning principals.
From his 25 years as a school principal, most recently at Takapuna Normal Intermediate School, he brings his interest in growing leadership capacity in others. Over his career, he has taken the opportunity to develop leadership skills in educational organisations at a local and regional level. He enjoys being part of a plan that improves the outcomes for students and educators alike.
Owen describes it as a privilege to work alongside new principals in developing their capabilities in the many dimensions of their new role. Providing “just in time.“ support tailored to individual principal needs is an exciting space to work in.
When not thinking education Owen enjoys spending time with family, sailing the Hauraki Gulf or just growing things on the farm.
