The Gold Standard Awards are the leading award recognising excellence in public affairs and corporate communication in the Asia Pacific region.
Mr Rodgers founded Rowland in 1992 and it has since grown to become Australia’s only full service public affairs and corporate communication firm with almost 90 staff.

He is the only Australian shortlisted for the Professional Excellence Award, which is the most prestigious of The Gold Standard Awards.
The winner will be announced on 6 December 2012 in Hong Kong.
