Global Access

Assisting companies entering new markets

Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, Rowland has supported businesses as they dealt with major business shocks, built greater resilience, and stabilised their operations.

Now, in the post-COVID-19 recovery, we’re helping clients seeking new market opportunities as they become stronger and prepare for the significant changes ahead. These future challenges and opportunities include climate change and the transition to net zero emissions targets, digital disruption, diversity and inclusion, and the future workforce and the skills required.

Whilst in many ways the world continues to experience massive upheaval, businesses realise they must look toward the next phase of the recovery, and are now seeking and seizing emerging opportunities including entry into new markets throughout the world.

And with the support of Rowland Global Access — the firm’s dedicated global business and advisory practice — companies don’t have to “go it alone”. Rowland’s experience provides you with access to services to take the next step in your new market entry plans.

Rowland clients can benefit greatly from our strategic business advice which is grounded in a strong understanding of the corporate, political and investment environments. These insights can help companies respond to new opportunities in agile and decisive ways.

As one of Australia’s leading strategic communication, digital and creative agencies, Rowland partners with its clients to offer an unparalleled private sector resource for business looking to seize offshore opportunities.

Through our relationship with global communication group FleishmanHillard, with 80 offices in more than 30 countries, Rowland can also give clients access to the latest thinking and research across our global network to provide the latest insights in thought-leadership, helping clients navigate the challenges and opportunities ahead.

Rowland Global Access assists companies to establish and maintain effective high-level networks with all levels of government, business, local communities, the media and other stakeholders in their markets of interest.

We have extensive knowledge of the Australian investment environment and influential players including investors, customers, consumers and special interest groups. Rowland has considerable experience supporting international companies with Australian investments and transactions.

We assist clients to liaise with Australian and state governments and departments, overseas government agencies, and trade and investment offices including Austrade, Trade and Investment Queensland, and the Brisbane Economic Development Agency.
