What I enjoy most about being a project manager is:
The opportunities to turn dreams into reality, making a difference, driving successful outcomes and overcoming challenges.
The three most important skills I use to successfully deliver projects are:
Strategic focus with a strong belief in purpose, communications & collaboration, relationships & team building.
I build and nurture my professional network by:
Connecting, being there when needed and keeping in touch.
At the start of my career, the one thing I wish I had known is:
Hard work is not sufficient for career advancement.
Women who have inspired me so far in my career journey are:
The women who faced adversity and had the courage to stand up, and speak up not being deterred by power, environmental norms or society’s expectations.
The most valuable advice I have ever been given is:
It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it.
My advice for women on finding success as a project manager is:
Be yourself, be confident, respectful, responsible, fair and honest. Speak-up, take risks, put your hand-up and keep learning and growing. Be the example you want the world to be!
