What Others Are Saying About Brendon

Thank you for inspiring me!

Hope, Value Management Office, Australian Taxation Office

When I began this project, it was facing some serious headwinds.  However, after working directly with Brendon, in only a short amount of time, we had a clear direction, developed a practical delivery strategy and knew how to prioritise our tasks. It gave me the confidence to successfully carry out our project. This was a real achievement given the turbulent environment we have had to work in.

Karin, Project Executive, Department of Finance

With Brendon’s one on one coaching, in just a few months our $9M program went from a 300 line task-list with untold delays to a well oiled machine. Our executives love the new clarity.

Tanya, Program Manager, Customer Service Transformation, Energy Client

Brendon provided both the vision and kick-start our Project Office needed. With Brendon’s new ways of thinking, our team now collaborates more, our practices are more effective and our processes are more efficient.

Sarah, PMO Director, Department Of Education Skills And Employment

Brendon was informative and engaging. Not only did he describe how influence networks operate and what the attributes of effective influencers were, he also gave us some practical steps to improve our own abilities to influence others. Once again, thank you.

Tony, Board Member, Canberra City Lions Club

Brendon’s insights were refreshingly practical.

David, Program and Portfolio Expert

Loved Every Bit Of It!

Brad, Sales Manager, Defence Housing Australia

Brendon is obsessed with driving simple, streamlined ways to deliver better change. As you soon as you start reading you can tell. There’s no superfluous steps. There’s only what works, designed and delivered in a way that everyone across my organisation finally understands what we are doing.

Michael, Executive Director, Large Government Client

Creating High Value PMOs

Your Essential Guide

Cursed to Fail?

Have you ever stopped and considered how deep the PMO graveyard in your organisation is?

The multi-million dollar question is: Are you doing anything different? …Or is your PMO cursed to fail too?

Almost every organisation these days has tried at least once to build a functioning and sustainable Project, Program or Portfolio Management Office …And almost every organisation has failed.

The good news is that I have dug up the skeletons, avoided the zombies, aired out the tombs, outrun the boulders and uncovered the common cause of PMO death. So, what if I said that you could reverse the trend and be the one who actually achieves it?

Could you be the hero who pulls the sword from the stone and stops the curse?

Let this guide be the Merlin to your King Arthur. It contains everything you will need to finally break the cycle (while helping you show everyone else, once again, that you can achieve the impossible).
