What's On Your Mind?
Why We Exist
In a nutshell, I founded Project Mastery to help contract project professionals gain the edge.
The edge that I learned over many years 'at the contracting coalface' and that when shared, propelled others forward and quite frankly, made me feel fantastic.
I started out many years ago as a Project Management whippersnapper, hustling my way into one client at a time and worked my way up to be Programme Director of some of the largest business transformation programmes in recent years. I then followed my passion for entrepreneurship and used my ill gotten contracting gains to start my own businesses, including keeping my hand "in the game" and consulting for recruitment agencies to get the most out of their client relationships.
With the unique combination of project management experience, entrepreneurship and skin in the recruitment game, I don't believe there is anyone else better placed to help contractors succeed in their careers. My mantra is based around 3 key contracting pillars:-
It is fundamental to have the right mindset about your contract career. From finding your “why” to developing a hide like a rhino, we’ll help you develop the mental fortitude required to be a successful contractor and enjoy it!
As a small business owner, the life blood of your business is your reputation, backed by a steady flow of the right offers. At Project Mastery we show you how to build your Personal Brand and how to best position yourself to win the next contract and the next and the one after that. Marketing yourself is NOT a one-off activity, it’s an ongoing machine that needs regular oiling.
Congrats you’re earning a juicy day rate – now what? Ltd Companies, Companies House, HMRC, Accountancy & Bookkeeping, IR35 … they are all coming for your time and money – and that’s before you develop your exit plan to get the heck out of there with a nice nest egg. Don’t fret, we’ve got you covered.
