Projecting With People
- CEO and Founder
Coaching & Mentoring
My Connection Statement
I work with executive decision makers to transform underperforming project teams. My hands on group training and coaching programs empower people to consistently deliver more profitable projects confidently.
About Me - My Biography
With 20 years in the project game, I started my project career in the ’trenches’ playing roles of coordinator, business analyst, tester, scheduler and financial controller. I have supported the visions of both the project team and the business which has given me the opportunity to see and help overcome challenges on both sides. As a leader I managed local, national, and international delivery teams on projects, programs and portfolios. In my 15 years as an independent project management consultant to several ASX listed companies, I became the person who was called when projects needed reviving.
I have assembled project teams from scratch, managed them, created entire delivery functions, been a project mentor and coach for a variety of teams in diverse industries, and roled out several project methodologies as a trainer. I am certified in PMP, Agile, Scrum & Scrum Mastery, and Prince 2.
While everyone is talking about Project Management, I see it as a strategy. And while understanding strategy is important, it’s in the doing that projects fail or succeed. Project Delivery is where it’s truly at. This is why my business helps people to improve their project delivery, strengthen their success with knowledge, and empower their people with resources using a human touch.
I help project teams to feel confident and equipped to consistently deliver projects which they are proud of, and that are valued!
I specialise in inexperienced and underperforming project teams delivering business improvement projects. These include IT & telecommunications projects, data management & reporting, HR, finance, marketing, and customer service projects.
I am a project delivery expert. I have spent the majority of my project career as a project manager and leader and have also taken on roles as a Business Analyst, tester, Financial advisor, and Scheduler. As a leader, I managed local, national and international delivery teams in roles of Program Manager, Delivery Manager, Portfolio Manager and Head of Delivery. For over 15 years I was an independent project management consultant to several ASX listed companies helping them to rescue and salvage failing projects.
I have assembled projects teams from scratch, managed them, created entire project delivery functions, been a project mentor and coach and roled out several project methodologies as a trainer.
