Russell Driscoll | Advisor - Speaker - Author | with photo

I am a management advisor. My experiences are broad and my qualifications include an MBA (Executive). I have led an interesting and varied life. From a working-class Sydney family, and humble beginnings, I was an employer at the age of 23. My family and closest friends agree that outrageous perseverance is high among my qualities, which combined with my ‘can do’ ethos, enables me to continue enjoying a thoroughly fulfilling life in family and career.

My management skills and/or business equities have included participation in automotive engineering, service stations, real estate sales & marketing, financial services, retail, hospitality, technology, management consulting, and property development. My decades of consulting have enabled me access to many other sectors including manufacturing, banking, transport, logistics, retail, and professional services. I have built a network of contacts that regularly assist me in my endeavours. My inquisitive nature, and appetite for knowledge led to me gathering a voluminous range of articles, clips, case studies, and books, relative to his research on organisational management.

I have been a coach and mentor. My personal experiences of failure and successes, are a bonus to my clients. Among my consulting pursuits, was a longing for a tool that would accelerate the timeline of managers going from good to exceptional. Indeed, having completed his MBA, I began the journey of developing the remarkable P9 Management Model, which today peers and partnering clients often describe as “a diamond discovery for senior management”. I am  currently completing a book that delivers a comprehensive roadmap to organisational excellence, by fully understanding the 9 umbrella elements, together with their 36 relational impacts, and then applying the model’s principles.

I describe myself as a family man; a fortunate husband, proud father, and very proud grandfather. I also a recently retired ordained senior pastor. After balancing my pastoral responsibilities with along with my consulting work for nearly twenty years, I took a seven year sabbatical from consulting, and took on the role of senior pastor of a church in Canberra, serving the local communities and raising funds for vital works overseas, particularly in India (which I continue to do).

That period also enabled significant reflection, and writing notes on the type of firm I build next, and, the type of clients I would want to attract. I firmly believes that leading teams of volunteers to achieve beyond their expectations, and providing individuals (experiencing vastly different situations) with pastoral care, are invaluable skill sets that complement the role I now have, of navigating Leaders and Senior Managers to becoming their exceptional selves.
