Project Performance

Guiding you through the twists and turns in an uncertain and frenetic environment, while keeping a clear head.

Projects work optimally when the situation is under control.  In today’s highly dynamic environment, this is rarely the case.  Projects are unpredictable, stakeholders are never in full alignment and the changing landscape cannot be controlled as teams struggle to adapt.  Consequently, a range of complex problems emerge that appear to be unresolvable.


Good people commonly experience frustration in the project environment.  No matter how hard they try to control the situation, no matter how many rules, procedures, processes, tools and structures they impose, and no matter how many plans they draw up, things still do not happen as intended.

Building without a Blueprint – Innovation Team



  • I recently worked closely with Patrick during the development and delivery of the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) funded Australia Awards Fellowship Program entitled, ‘Responding to Skilled Worker Demand: Improving Quality, Leadership and Management of TVET’ in Vietnam. Throughout the delivery of this Fellowship Program Patrick was responsible for facilitating training activities in the areas of transformational leadership, personal leadership, leading teams, project management and change management. Patrick did an outstanding job in this position demonstrating his agility in effectively and efficiently responding to emerging challenges as well as contextualizing training content to meet the needs of his audience, in this case senior leaders from Vietnam’s Ministry of Construction.

    technical background and experience, coupled with genuine empathy and
    ability to develop high-performing teams.
