You are an EMEA PMO Manager at Cargill. How did you come into this position?
Throughout my career, I have developed myself to become a passionate transformational leader who is able to inspire, influence, encourage and motivate others towards success.
With the trust in myself that others would see my potential, I worked in many different service delivery and project management roles to showcase my capabilities.
Within Cargill, I have found my reward for all of the hard work. In my current role as the EMEA PMO Manager I can be an advocate in our organization for agility and ensure that we are all ready to act in this fast-changing world with strategic enablers that focus on people & culture, disruption and innovation, transformation and differentiated management “to thrive the world”.
You are closely engaged with the Cargill team at Questers – what are your impressions from your work with Questers and the consultants engaged through them?

We will call out what went well, but also our improvement areas from both sides.
What types of projects is the team working on?
From the roles of project coordination, project management, program management, scrum masters and agile coaches we want our business to see the PMO team as a trusted partner to enable business transformations in ERP, Digital, Smart Manufacturing, Finance, Tax, MOM/MES, plant space and many more.
