I have been a Project Manager for over ten years through a variety of industries. The most interesting thing I have learnt is that I use the same skills in every role, and I learn something new about leadership every year. My interest is in people skills and how we empower a team to succeed.

Confidently returning after a career break with kids.
Why is a career as a Project Manager a great choice for women?
Because it forces you to learn to trust yourself.

Any other comments about Women in Project Management?
As Project Managers I think we need to encourage more into our profession and raise it’s profile as a career path.
To celebrate International Women’s Day for 2018, I will be sharing the profiles and stories of some incredible women who have flourished in their project management careers. May they inspire you and the women around you to kick goals in the world of project management.
