Former marketing exec Rowena Millward, who held several senior international roles with Johnson & Johnson, has launched a new book, Uncomfortable Growth, providing leaders with a blueprint to uncover who they are, what they really want and what future they choose to create.
Written in the aftermath of COVID, Millward, co-founder of MacMORGAN Next Practice Growth who has also held marketing positions with Neutrogena and Procter & Gamble, said she wrote the book to “address the human issue rarely discussed with growth, resulting in people (and businesses) getting stuck and playing a small game.”
Integrating leadership, neuroscience, and psychology, Rowena draws upon 20 years’ experience from Top 500 companies to “navigate the contradiction wired in all of us: how can we embrace fear and curveballs so uncertainty and challenge can be a source of growth, not overwhelm?”
Having personally juggled an extensive marketing career with marriage, motherhood and cancer, Rowena now wants to empower readers to live a fulfilling life by design, drawing from her current work MacMORGAN which focuses provides consulting and capability services for many of the world’s most admired brands and companies.
Uncomfortable Growth is Rowena’s second book, having launched Insights to Enlighten – for living, leading and marketing in 2021, which became an Amazon bestseller in Business Communication and Brand Management. Uncomfortable Growth is published by Golden Earth Publishing and is now available at all leading bookstores and online retailers.
