Head of corporate planning and PMO, Channel 4 Television
Sonia has over 20 years of experience working with Projects and driving change initiatives predominantly within the area of technology. Taking on a role within a Global portfolio office for Mars IS she developed her passion for PMO and became an advocate and skilled change agent for adopting PMO process and best practice. Qualified as an AIPMO Expert, MSP® and P3O® practitioner, her background as an IT project and programme manager enables her to work with key stakeholders to ensure that they are taken on the change journey at a pace that works for them. 4 years ago, Sonia took on a challenge to setup a greenfield Technology PMO at Channel 4.
Her success in this mission led her to an opportunity to take on her current role as Head of Planning and PMO and do the same at the Enterprise level. In an industry that does not lend itself well to project management, Sonia has had to overcome many obstacles and challenges to achieve the success and results that are already making a significant difference to the organisation. Sonia has both a collaborative style and pragmatic approach that contributes to her success in the setup of greenfield PMO’s.
