I am an author and mentor who helps project managers and their teams get more done with less stress. I do that through straight-talking, real-world advice, based on my 20 years in project management roles in financial services and healthcare.

I am a Fellow of the APM.

I have written 6 books about project management: Shortcuts to Success: Project Management in the Real World (which was a finalist in the Management Book of the Year Awards 2014 and now in its second edition), Collaboration Tools for Project Managers (published by PMI), Communicating Change, Project Manager, Engaging Stakeholders on Projects (published by APM) and Customer-Centric Project Management. I write the award-winning blog, A Girl's Guide to Project Management.

I write the blog The Money Files on ProjectManagement.com - please stop by and say hello!

I also regularly write for industry media including projectmanagement.com, as well as providing copywriting services for project-related businesses.

I hold degrees from the University of York and Roehampton University. I support project managers through my mentoring programme, Project Management Rebels, and also contributes to a variety of other initiatives including sitting on the advisory board for the RISE Being Lean and Seen programme at Liverpool John Moores University.

I live with my family in the UK.
