Adaptable, trainable and trustworthy, I am a well-trained and accredited Project Management practitioner/specialist. Having earned PMP®, MoP® - Portfolio Management Practitioner, PRINCE2® Project Management Practitioner and ITIL® IT Service Management, Foundation accreditation—I have a good knowledge-base of tactical and strategic project management theory, frameworks, techniques, methodologies, foundational standards, practice standards and good/approved best practices.


Growing stakeholders' commitment and engagement—delivering projects on time and within budget and scope requires more than the ability to apply project management processes and techniques. It also takes soft skills which address the human side of projects. After all, it’s the people who deliver the work, not the tools.


Servant leadership is my philosophy—sharing power, putting the needs of employees first and helping people develop and perform as highly as possible.


A project's success is measured by product and project quality, timeliness, budget compliance, and degree of customer & stakeholders' satisfaction.


My value propositions. The three Es can be a starting point: economic, effectiveness and efficiency benefits.


For example, client retention and generating repeat revenue, profitability—making sure that revenue stays ahead of the costs of doing business, and reduction in employee turnover costs—maintaining a productive and positive workplace environment that improves employee retention!


An individual of refreshing candor, an exceptionally conscientious practitioner/specialist who works honorably and with dedication; I foster project management success—by design. Continuous learning and putting  knowledge into action are hallmarks of my work! Speaking "truth to power" is important to me. I believe that effective enterprise/corporate-level management oversight and governance require me to be transparent, honest and fair at all times.
