Rogen International And Si Group Announce Merger

Media release 14 December 2006

Rogen International And The Si Group Announce $45m Merger

Rogen International, the management training and consulting group, and the Si Group, the UK-based specialist in enhancing performance through motivation and mindset change, have announced their $45M global merger.

The merger creates a multi-country firm - to be known as RogenSi - with 120 consultants operating in Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and North America. The ownership of the merged business is entirely shared between around 20 directors in the group.

In New Zealand Rogen has led the field in management training for the past 17 years. The company has offices in Auckland and Wellington and currently employs eight consultants led by Rosemary Hume, a Director of Rogen New Zealand.

Rogen is best-known for its skill development and consulting work in the areas of sales performance, leadership, pitching and persuasive communication. The Si Group has a global reputation for providing inspirational coaching in motivation and mindset change. The merged companies complement each other and offer a full range of training, coaching and advisory services covering the knowledge, skills, processes and mindset required to drive results, support leaders and inspire change.

The Rogen and Si client list includes many of the world’s leading organisations, including JP Morgan, Novartis, Woolworths, Royal Mail, Telstra, National Australia Bank, KPMG, Merrill Lynch and BT.

Rogen International started as the Australian and New Zealand franchise of the training and consulting business originally established by Peter Rogen in New York in 1968. Australian founder Neil Flett and his partners took over the running of the global business in 1993 and since then have grown the firm into a $NZD28M consultancy with offices around the world. Rogen International is now a brand recognised in Australia, New Zealand, Asia, North America and the United Kingdom.

The merger with the Si Group creates a significant consultancy in London and positions RogenSi to grow its North American operations and expand into Europe from its existing offices in France.

Sydney based global Managing Director Jim Robertson said: “RogenSi answers the question that faces many business leaders: ‘How is it that my people all receive the same education, the same training, the same compensation, the same resources…yet a few always consistently outperform the rest?’ RogenSi now has the answer, by helping leaders and team members develop the skill, the will and the way to win.

“You can have the best knowledge, skills and processes in the world, but if the attitude is not there, the team will not reach peak performance” he said. “Equally, you can have the best will in the world, but without the skills, in particular, and also the knowledge and processes, you will still fall below optimum performance. RogenSi now provides clients with the four cornerstones of sustained peak performance: the knowledge, the skills, the processes and the mindset. If you can combine these ingredients in your business team you will find they have a multiplying, not additive, impact.

“Solutions are now also delivered in a wider range of formats,” said Mr Robertson, “from one-on-one coaching and consulting engagements through to training programmes and conference production, keynote speaking, video and e-learning support.”
