Greetings! I'm Linda, a seasoned professional hailing from Canada and currently based in Europe for the past four enriching years. My journey in project management has been one of building and nurturing global Project Management Offices (PMOs) from inception, pioneering portfolio management frameworks, and spearheading impactful business and digital transformation endeavors across a spectrum of industries including telecommunications, healthcare, energy, technology, and finance. Thriving in multicultural settings globally, I've cultivated a knack for orchestrating large-scale initiatives with finesse. To continually enrich my expertise and stay abreast of evolving trends, I've diligently pursued certifications spanning project, program, and portfolio management, alongside product management, change management, and process improvement domains. Sharing insights and best practices is ingrained in my ethos, evident through my engagements as a speaker at esteemed conferences, contributions to industry publications, and authorship of a comprehensive book on Project Portfolio Management (PPM). Additionally, I've found fulfillment in nurturing the next generation of professionals through teaching engagements and volunteer activities. My journey as a mentor has been both humbling and rewarding, having been a recipient of invaluable mentorship myself since my 30s. With this wealth of experience, I extend to you not just my time and expertise but also a compassionate ear, offering holistic guidance tailored to your aspirations and challenges. I look forward to embarking on this collaborative journey, enriched with shared insights and mutual growth.
