Rowan Bendall

Having flown aeroplanes for the last 20 years, Rowan found herself without gainful employment at the beginning of the pandemic. She has redesigned her life from the ground up, and has now knitted herself a new career or two drawing upon her experience as a trainer and facilitator, her love of music, her interests in psychology and learning, and her appreciation of living with the day-to-day quirks and challenges of raising and home educating two kids in a high learning potential family. She is now freelancing as a facilitator; trainer; orchestrator and arranger; performer; resource, life, employment and personal development coach and recruiter. In her spare time, she administrates the Global Cello Project and manages NHS trust mobile wellbeing lounge bookings and is an on-call operations manager for Project Wingman, a charity providing wellbeing spaces, and lots and lots of cups of tea for exhausted front line NHS workers on its fleet of double decker buses!
