Topic: Portfolio management during COVID-19.
COVID-19 has thrown us many challenges! So how have our projects been impacted and how have we pivoted to ensure success? Jane Dowsley will give a presentation on why AlburyCity created a Project Management Office, how we manage such a diverse portfolio and what impact COVID-19 has had on project delivery.
P.S. Our Christmas social will be held in the afternoon at Atura Albury, so don’t forget to register for that too!

Jane started her working life as an IT Consultant implementing software solutions for various organisations including Toyota, Linfox and Monash University. She then spent years travelling the world implementing a business improvement project for BHP Billiton’s internal medical clinics in countries including USA, Canada, Chile and South Africa.
Continuing in the mining industry, she then moved to Iluka Resources working on large construction projects including mine site development, after which a lifestyle move back to her roots, and extended family, in North East Victoria was in order.
