The following testimonials give feedback from a broad range of clients and users, each of whom has gained some experience with myself and the tools that I use for the purpose of Project Management. 

Am finishing my contract with Department of Communities... It's always rewarding to receive positive messages

(well, they have to be nice don't they?)

All the best Trudy.  I have enjoyed working with you and your commitment, despite obstacles encountered, is something I have admired.  (Financial Governance)

Thanks Trudy, I appreciate your email.  I’ve really enjoyed working with you and hope things go well in the future. (CIO)

Hi Trudy, sorry to see you go. I will miss your common sense approach. I hope I get lots of referee calls! (Systems Auditor)


What a surprise it is to receive positive feedback from someone you don't know - but it is always very welcome.

I always say to Project Management students that you can have a project delivered in full, on time, within budget - but it can be a failure based on dissatisfied stakeholders.  Or you can have a project that is over budget and over time, but it is a success because the stakeholders are satisfied and happy.

It's all down to communications.

So, to receive this email out of the blue from an employee I don't even know was fantastic, and it reinforces the above point.

I'll have to find out who Andrew is so I can Manage By Chocolate Frog! (if you don't know what that means I'll explain it to you - or you can wait for the book!)


Hi Trudy  

I have no idea who you are but I wanted to say I really like your Tridata updates, purely as a reader. I have no particular knowledge of or interest in Tridata (though possibly I should have both, I’m not sure) but even so I’ve read both of your updates and found them interesting and informative.

 Project communication is usually agony to read and understand, but your updates have been a rare exception. They’re clearly structured, simply written, use commentary to highlight key points, have a personality and – this is probably the rarest thing – have an emotional position (the “I know this sucks but…” position). It all adds up to a really effective piece of writing.

 I would have sent you this message at the last update, but I thought I’d hang back and see if you maintain your standards! Anyway, nice work. To say I’m looking forward to the next one is overstating things, but I’ll certainly read it when it comes! ;-)


It's always sad when you finish a project - but the fact of the matter is that a project has a defined start and finish date - so we must move on with the next opportunity.

The general nature of projects means that there tends to be frenetic activity to meet deadlines and achieve project outcomes, but the priority must also be to achieve requirements in a manner that works for everyone, whilst having a smile and keeping integrity intact.

Feedback from my peers means a great deal to me and is part of my continuous improvement philosophy.

Rock on the next challenge!
