About me

Hi. Great to meet you online. I’m Louise. I’m currently a part-time lecturer on the Masters in Project Management at the University of Cape Town and have various professional roles including Heading up the South Africa PMO awards judging committee. I work in the Design and Build Department but over 30 years in project management I have worked in most sectors from retail to finance to government to engineering and defence.

I’m passionate about project management but even more excited and committed to education and have worked in mentoring roles here in South Africa for over ten years and prior to that as a consultant in the UK. Five years ago, I completed my Masters in Online Learning and have been excited to apply these techniques to address some of our recent challenges with shut down.

I have published several books in project management but the one I am most proud of is Stakeholder-led Project Management : Changing the Way we Manage Projects which is in its second edition. This book draws upon stories collected from so many amazing project managers. I strongly believe that every mentoring experience always involves two-way learning and one of my motivations for being involved in this scheme is to hear your stories and hopefully help you find the solutions that work in your business.

My mentoring is aimed at project managers and those working in support or strategic roles such as the PMO manager, project manager, portfolio manager or programme manager.
