Who we are

Transformative business communicators – with heart

Rowland is one of Australia’s leading strategic communication consultancies.

Every day we solve, create, and transform: using powerful, data-led communication — digital, visual, spoken and written — we help our clients solve problems, create opportunities, and ultimately, transform their businesses.

But it’s not just about what we do; it’s also about how we do it. We call it ‘The Rowland Way’: a unique combination of our past, present and future, the values and attitude of our people, and how we make a difference to our clients and the world around us.

This is our story.

Where we’ve been … Established in 1992 as a one-person operation in suburban Brisbane, today we are an industry-leading team of 70+ professionals servicing clients across Australia and the world.

Where we’re going … Since our inception we have continuously evolved, always at the forefront of communication innovations, new methodologies and channels. Now, with specialised Digital and Insights teams focused on analysing global megatrends, we’re already working in the future — applying the right emerging technologies and analytics alongside our traditional offering.

What does this mean for you? Confidence. You don’t need to understand the latest communication trends or know what platform will most effectively reach your target audience — because we do.

As we stand on the precipice of a digital world filled with AI and seismic technology shifts, we’re taking our clients confidently into a future where communication and connection are more important than ever. We’ll help you not only keep up — but stand out — in a world of constant change.


What we value

Our uncompromising commitment to our clients and values has always, and will always, remain the same.

This is what makes us ‘Rowland’.

We seek to excel, continue to learn, work with integrity and courage, and most importantly, we care — about our work, our communities, the world around us, and each other.

Doing our best for the world in which we operate

We embrace community, inclusivity and social enterprise principles to make a difference and positively impact everyone we interact with.

Read more about community

For more than 30 years, we have worked with clients and on major projects where operating in a socially, environmentally and economically responsible manner is non-negotiable.

We take this one step further — making a difference ourselves — as we believe we should. It’s part of who we are and what makes us Rowland.

Yes, we are adept at applying best practice social responsibility and sustainability policies — working together to achieve positive community, environmental and social outcomes — but beyond this, we contribute ourselves and add further value to Australian communities, people and the environment.

Since 2007, we have enjoyed a close, active association with FleishmanHillard — one of the world’s largest communication groups.

FleishmanHillard operates 80+ offices across North America, South America, Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa — meaning Rowland clients can reach any audience, anywhere, anytime.

We also have direct access to FleishmanHillard’s parent company, the world’s largest marketing services company and NYSE-listed Omnicom Group, which operates 200+ companies providing advertising, marketing, media planning and buying, and other specialty communication services.
