I love it when a plan comes together! So many skills are combined to make great projects, mine have grown from experience. Often when I have won a large contract for an organisation they then need me to implement the new project and take them to the new normal. I can’t help myself but say yes as I like to see new things through.
Putting together a complicated tender is like managing a project – working together with many stakeholders often in different countries and getting everything to move seamlessly before the bid date.
But don’t take my word for it, here are some of the things my customers have said:
"Kirsten is an excellent facilitator and leader. She demonstrated the ability to work with senior individuals from diverse backgrounds, where ideas were created and needed to be shaped, and concepts generated enthusiasm but needed to be driven to action."
"The matrix working and fluid structure of the group required high levels of relationship management. I saw Kirsten build trust between herself and partners and between the partners themselves. Her knowledge of management, coupled with her experience and intuitive abilities to encourage and challenge were evident during the development and delivery of the project. I consider her a person of integrity and her sincere approach enables her to coordinate people, chase and achieve action whilst retaining commitment and respect."
"She balances delivery with a people centred approach and it is that latter that achieves the outcomes of the projects. Her creativity and marshalling of ideas into strategic frameworks has been highly beneficial in maintaining momentum at key points. I would be personally pleased at any opportunity to work with her again."
"I have to leave today. Thanks for bringing some sunshine into my life over the last few months, I wish all our suppliers were as happy, amusing and efficient. You have been a breath of fresh air."
