penny pullanSo what’s unique about Penny?

Here’s what our associates said recently:

‘Penny’s self assured and acts with integrity and conviction. She delivers professionally and is committed to doing what’s needed.’

‘She always looks for the positive and how to make things as good as they possibly can be. She creates new ideas and enjoys exploring them. She likes to try new things and improve her toolset.’

‘Learning from others, and helping them learn to realise their potential, is important to Penny. She loves to communicate ideas in ways that get through and to share what works. She listens carefully from the speaker’s point of view.’

‘When planning, she runs through future events in her mind’s eye to see what’s needed. She’s bright and thinks quickly.’

Penny provides keynote sessions internationally and speaks regularly at professional events (such as the IIBA, PMI, APM, IAF, BCS) and writes articles which have been published by the PMI, APM and the British Computer Society. She has co-authored, co-edited or contributed to four books. This one is her latest:

    • Ph.D. degree from the University of Cambridge (yes, you can call her Dr Pullan if you like, but she’s happy with Penny!)

    ‘I found Penny’s contribution to be of a very high quality, both in terms of content and her approach. She has a strong knack of getting everyone on board and getting everyone else to contribute. Her facilitation skills are absolutely brilliant.’

    ‘Penny can add a deep understanding of managing change, through traditional project management, business process re-engineering and through an understanding of the human aspects of change and the need for engagement of groups and individuals going through any change.’

    Penny provides services to several leading project management consultancies in addition to her own clients.

    She’s based in Leicestershire with her husband, who writes, and two young daughters.
