About Elizabeth Harrin

“I am a career project and programme manager with over a decade of experience in healthcare and financial services, including two spent working in Paris, France.  I’m the author of Social Media for Project Managers, Customer-Centric Project Management and Shortcuts To Success: Project Management in the Real World (now in its second edition).  I occasionally speak at conferences and events, and I try not to fall off the stage too often.

I’m Director of Otobos Consultants Ltd, a consultancy that focuses on project management copywriting. We help people tell the story of their project more effectively.

A Girl’s Guide to Project Management is an award-winning blog.  It won the Project Management category of the Computer Weekly IT Blog Awards in 2008, 2009 and 2010.  In 2010 I was also named Computer Weekly’s Blogger of the Year and in 2011 I was named Computer Weekly’s IT Professional Blogger of the Year.”
