Why I joined Project One

I really like the importance of integrity at Project One; doing the right thing for the client and building relationships with client stakeholders through offering them the most appropriate and valuable help and guidance.  From my experience to date, the way Project One runs its business is totally consistent with those ideals – how refreshing!

I am going to appreciate being part of a team of highly experienced programme management and transformational change professionals who are willing to support each other to get the best outcome.  With such a wealth of capability, I note that Project One are able to secure a wide variety of clients and types of engagement – which should keep things spicy!
