About Marion

Marion specialises in leadership training for project people, is a professional coach, and mentors candidates for the ChPP standard. She has spent over 30 years leading projects and programmes for organisations in the pharmaceutical, manufacturing, telecoms, IT, and public sectors.

Following the early part of her career in ICI/AstraZeneca, she has been working as a freelance project expert, and more recently as a project leadership trainer. She is typically called in when a project is in trouble, or when the client knows what they want to achieve, but not how to deliver the outcomes they seek.

She founded ExtraordinaryPM in 2017 and runs courses designed to develop leadership and people skills for project professionals.

She is a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach and completed the Coaches Training Institute’s Leadership Programme in 2013.

She is a Chartered Project Professional, a Fellow of the Association for Project Management, and was a finalist in the 2020 APM awards. She regularly speaks at APM and PMI events.
