, Director of HR, Brunel University London:
I am delighted to recommend Mona who came to us when we were in a little bit of trouble and steered us safely to a stronger place. An excellent project lead with great people skills, Mona is approachable, pragmatic and fun to work with. We all learned a lot and enjoyed the journey.
Richard Blundell, Independent Programme Manager:
I first worked with Mona on a multi-million £ project between 2006 and 2008 where she provided excellent project management/project support to the 30+ people within our Project Team. Her pragmatic and personable approach was key to ensuring the project was successfully delivered. More recently, Mona joined our team as HR Payroll Workstream Lead within a U4BW implementation at a Higher Education Institution. She revitalised the workstream; coaching and managing the HR & Payroll Operational Teams through to go-live (on schedule) in April 2018. This go-live would not have been achieved without Mona’s coaching, mentoring, insight and pro-active motivation of the Team.
Mona is an excellent Project Manager who has a real ‘people first’ approach to delivering projects. She is able to bring out the best in those that she works with whilst remaining fully focussed on the critical activities needed to implement challenging ERP projects. I would recommend Mona to any organisation seeking a first-class Project Manager who also cares about mentoring and coaching internal staff – I would have no hesitation in working with her on any future projects.
Sarah Walker, Head of Finance Systems and Information at University of Sussex:
Mona is a professional people person with strong project experience. Projects are made or otherwise by the people involved and Mona certainly helped our people come together and make the best of a sometimes fraught situation. Mona helped us to organise ourselves and as a result improved our delivery times and our project governance. Mona also brought a sense of perspective and ensured that we looked out as well as inwards; she helped us to bring stakeholders along on the journey which improved the perception of the project and enabled us to achieve wider aims.
Alison Cross, Director of Human Resources at Oxford Brookes University:
Mona is a very skillful and effective project manager. She works exceptionally well with people to bring out the best in them and for the project.
Leah P. on her coaching experience:
Thank you very much for everything you have done for me over the last year but mainly the last 6 months, you have enabled me to achieve a great deal in my work but more personally in myself and my confidence. These sessions have been life changing.
Paul Hamill, Former Build and Implementation Project Director at UNIT4:
Mona’s professionalism as a project manager is without question excellent and she is one of the best project managers that I have worked with during my diverse career. Mona also has excellent understanding of business processes. The programme did not have business processes defined or agreed and Mona played a significant role in shaping the developing process to meet the diverse business needs. She was the face of the programme within the countries and engaged with key stakeholders ranging from the local management team through to the end users. Mona has excellent knowledge and experience but was also able to gain an understanding of new processes very quickly.
Chantelle C. on her coaching experience:
“I think your style works, it’s natural and inspiring. You have helped me to move to a new career, get the dream job and now know my worth.”
