ABOUT

ME

Passionate About Helping Others!

Over 30 years in senior management positions has given me considerable experience and skills, to draw upon - and value add - to project formulation.


I have taken the big wins gained in the public service and established the Compass Project Consultancy to help others.


My aim is to provide expert writing, consultancy and project management services; and source funds and awards for community and business clients.
