Managers who are not frustrated by the every day pain points of missed milestones, micro-management, repeated mistakes and conflict

“If you always deliver on time and to budget, have all the leadership support you want

and need, a highly motivated project team and end users who are open to

changing the ways they work, then you are a communications maestro.

You already know how to explain change effectively.


But if you have a little niggle of doubt, then let my guide fill the gap with practical knowledge you and your team can use each and every day.” Jo Ann Sweeney
