Current responsibilities: My role in PLP involves providing Project Management training both for internal staff and for clients through our APM accredited training courses, as well as significant involvement in the L4 Associate Project Manager apprenticeships. In addition, I provide assistance to teams with any reporting challenges and wide-ranging software support.

Personality and experience: Spent several years in general construction and house-building before moving into Project Management education lecturing on undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
