Clients come away from working with Rod feeling enthusiastic, motivated and happy that they have something tangible to take away to help them. Rod is seen as a trusted advisor by some very senior people. His special skill lies in taking the anxiety out of a client’s situation by demonstrating that the challenges they face are not, usually, uncommon, and helping provide the solutions.
Rod Farnan’s business experience prior to joining Global Integration, includes sales, marketing, global product launches and training in the Pharmaceutical sector (both ethical and POM-P) – all at a time of intense merger and acquisition activity.
He began his career selling to primary care doctors and was a Global Marketing Director based in the USA before joining Global Integration in 2000. Rod has lived in the UK and USA and operated globally, working on every continent.
Whilst, naturally, more than capable of delivering consultancy and training in all of Global Integration’s key areas of expertise, Rod particularly enjoys the challenges presented by increasingly complex and matrixed international management and the effective facilitation of groups in this arena.
He was born in Scotland and has a degree in Biological Sciences. He loves to hill walk, cycle, plays the odd game of tennis (but won’t be presenting a threat to Andy Murray) and is an enthusiastic cook. He used to fly fixed wing aircraft and still has an abiding interest in aviation. He also has a long-term interest in the presidency of JFK.
