What I Do
Laura is a diligent, hard working delivery manager. Her strengths include the ability to identify ways of working better and stakeholder management. These together with her enthusiasm make her a great person to have in a team.
Laura is an energetic and focused individual able to work across multi-disciplinary teams and at different levels. Her interpersonal and project management skills allowed her to ensure projects were delivered in a quality fashion and on time. She is a pleasure to work with and an asset to any team.
Laura was always professional and diligent with a positive approach. Laura was very reliable and made a significant contribution to the team.
Laura helped my offload 7 peoples work which I was doing at the time, and introduced me to well being and holistic person centred project management. She was an Extremely good role model, though I don't think I could have managed the kick boxing - not a Project Manager to argue with and a most respected colleague. I would always rely on her in a tight spot.
Laura has a strong delivery focus, is very tenacious and a great team player. Laura is able to quickly build an understanding of the why's and how's of a programme and then to get the best out of people to ensure delivery.
