Experienced Project Manager

Hello, I am Barry Hodge an experienced portfolio, programme and project manager that specialises in establishing and growing project management in companies who have little or no project management framework. In addition I also coach and mentor those who would like to get into project management as well as those that wish to grow within the industry.

My career as a project manager has resulted in me successfully delivering projects for a wide range of companies in a number of different sectors. From Pharmaceuticals and Housing through to Retail and Distribution.

Along the way I have learnt many different tricks and techniques to make delivering projects faster and easier. My aim is to show you some of these techniques so you can enjoy the same success that I have had with delivering projects that make a difference.
