I am a dedicated change management professional who puts into practice every day the elements that lead to personal and organisational success. I am still learning! As a leader in my own business, a change management instructor and advisor, I am constantly developing ways to help people make the connection between change management and performance improvement in the workplace. My 20+ years in project and programme management left me frustrated with the lack of benefits realisation and low achievement of ROI, as well as shocked by the management and staff disillusionment that resulted from poorly managed change. We are capabable of doing so much better! This led to my decision to focus on the people side of change. I work with business leaders to create the conditions for successful change and with change practitioners to develop sustainable approaches, appropriate for their organisations. Providing support and encouragement to the growth of change leaders and professionals is one of my greatest pleasures and a privilege.
As a speaker of five languages and with assignments that take me around the world, my insights have been gained from work with local and global companies in the UK, Europe, SE Asia, the Middle East and Africa covering private (finance, pharma, engineering, manufacturing, etc.), public and non-profit. My business partner and I founded CMC back in 2001 and we continue to innovate in the service of our customers focusing on portfolio, programme, project and change management. Our family has chosen to live in Singapore at present, a vibrant, human rainbow city where change is and always has been a massive feature!
During the six years I have served as a Board Member, ACMP has achieved so much. The most intensive periods of activity for me were associated with leadership activity for the creation of the Certified Change Manager ProfessionalTM Program, the Qualified Education ProviderTM Program and of course with the roles I fulfilled as Vice President, President then Past President. My work with ACMP has given me great joy as I have helped colleagues from around the world come together, united as volunteers in activities that evolve our offering and working with a staff team who are passionate about the bright future we have.
