Trainer Profile

Paul Richardson

Delegates coming to my courses are often looking for the specific skills that enable Project Managers to master the art of project management as well as the science behind the profession.Experienced project managers appreciate that the skills required to deliver successful projects go way beyond plans, risk and change control that traditional project management courses cover.

Using my experience of managing projects in a range of industries at senior executive level through to the shop floor, I am able to bring to my courses a practical approach to the application of ‘people’ skills to ensure project success.
