About us

Dr Rosemary Taylor, Senior Partner of Key Issues, is a qualified teacher with a Masters Degree in Leadership & Management. Early in her career she rose to become one of the youngest Headteachers in the country, before returning to her primary interest in Behavioural Psychology. Her PhD stemmed from an interest in the thinking behind how people respond to, deal with and manage change and led to further study and research within the wider field. Rosemary now works as a consultant and specialist trainer and mentor across both public and private sectors and spends much of her time as a guest speaker, delivering seminars and keynote presentations on the international lecture circuit across Europe, the Middle East and China.

Early in 2007 she was appointed as an advisor to the UN, working in Kuwait in developing senior leaders and in 2012 she was appointed as a consultant for the Council of British International Schools. Rosemary’s key specialisms reflect her work and experience within a number of related fields and include Developing Effective Leadership & Management; Gender Issues; Understanding the Teenage Brain; Meeting the Needs of 21st Century Learners and Working with the Able, Gifted & Talented.

In 2017 Rosemary joined the Huddl Parenting Organisation as an advisor, speaking at their hugely popular conferences on the theme of The Adolescent Brain, a subject on which she has
become a leading authority around the world. With an ever-increasing client base Rosemary also finds time to write for a number of professional publications and journals and provides advisory services to The Good Schools Guide.

In recent years a fascinating and hugely enjoyable departure for Rosemary has been her intermittent role as a guest speaker for a number of international cruise lines. She has entertained huge audiences around the world with her fascinating, informative and amusing series of lectures entitled Mind Games.
