About My Services:

I specialise in project, programme, stakeholder and business change management. I have delivered projects in the public sector (The NHS, Education & Skills, The Home Office) and the private sector (Software Development, Telecommunications, Manufacturing & Engineering, Retail, Consultancy, Pharmaceuticals). These projects have ranged in size from relatively small budgets and project teams to large, £multi-million national/international initiatives with large, multi-site, multi-disciplinary teams. As a Project Manager, I combine the rigour structured project management methodologies with the pragmatism of achieving results through people – at all levels in an organisation. My professional qualifications include PRINCE2 & MSP and I hold a MBA (with distinction) from the University of Liverpool. Importantly, I am used to adapting to new situations quickly and delivering value from the outset. I can supply excellent references upon request. more »
