Russell Driscoll | Advisor - Speaker - Author | with photo

I am a management advisor, specifically in organisational performance and transformational change. I am also the Founder and CEO of Managing Excellence, a boutique, Australian based, Advisory and Consulting firm. My experiences are broad, and my qualifications include an MBA (Executive). I was an employer at twenty-three from a working-class Sydney family with humble beginnings. 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 my 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 regularly assisting me in my endeavours. My inquisitive nature and appetite for knowledge led to me gathering various articles, clips, case studies, and books relative to my 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 need for a tool that would accelerate the timeline of managers going from good to exceptional. Indeed having completed my MBA, I completed the development of the remarkable P9 Management Model, which today, many of my peers and partnering clients often describe in terms like “a diamond discovery for senior management”. I recently completed a book that delivers a comprehensive roadmap to organisational excellence by fully understanding the 9 umbrella elements and their 36 relational impacts and then applying the model’s principles.

I describe myself as a family man; a fortunate husband, a proud father, and a very proud grandfather. I am also a recently retired ordained senior pastor after balancing my pastoral responsibilities and 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 health and education 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 would build next and the type of clients I would want to attract. I firmly believe 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 again, of navigating leaders and senior managers to becoming their exceptional selves.
