I worked and learned under Des’ guidance for three years and have obtained a powerful amount of invaluable experience. Des meets her mentees halfway, putting in as much effort into their success as they are willing to put in themselves. She pushed me past my personal expectations and because of her encouragement I am a Certified Associate of Project Management (CAPM).
Des has a strong passion for teaching and guiding, especially the young people entering the workforce. Her dedication to my success was apparent in her efforts to match my own dedication to success. Des makes a point to challenge my PM knowledge, answer questions, and connect with me on a personal level. I can confidently say that I would not be where I am today (CAPM and confident in my skills as a leader and young professional) without Des’ strong and guiding hand.
Few people have an opportunity to report someone who is a great manager and mentor—but I did when I worked for Des. Des is singularly responsible for a major boost in my career. She provided not only training but wise professional coaching. Des’ ability to juggle multiple projects was unlike any I’ve seen before and made a dramatic difference in the productivity level of our PMO team. Anyone would be lucky to have Des at their company and I highly recommend her services as a PM.
