Laura specialises in project management and management development

Laura has 8 years experience in the charity sector, in particular developing and delivering volunteer and community projects.

My areas of expertise

  • Project management
  • Management Development
  • Personnel effectiveness

At the moment

I’ve had a busy few months, working with a number of organisations including Royal Star and Garter Homes and Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, to help them embed effective project management in their organisations. In addition I’ve been working Marie Curie and V&A Museum to upskill their managers to get the best results from those they work with.

In the next few months I will be working with a number of organisations, including Tommy’s to support staff in improving personal effectiveness and Girlguiding UK to build confidence in their influencing and negotiating skills.

Before =mc

I started my career in the environmental charity sector developing and delivering community conservation projects before moving on to recruit, train and manage staff and volunteers to deliver excellent customer service for the National Trust.

Most recently I have been the lead project officer working on innovative volunteer-led projects within communities across London, including working with the Greater London Authority (GLA) to raise awareness about air pollution in London. I was responsible for the development and delivery of the Sustrans volunteer strategy as well as the learning and development programme for volunteers. My love of developing and delivering training to volunteers and staff for projects and professional development has led me to concentrate on a career in learning and development.
