Ian Sharpe

People are at the heart of everything I lead and that is why organisations I work with have achieved sustainable success from their major transformations and portfolio investments. I deliver the value required through tight project, program, portfolio management governance, controls and agility - building strong leaders and high-performance teams along the way to truly shift organisational culture and capability.

My career encompasses leading on strategic portfolio alignment, major organisational transformations, delivering sustainable results and growing both large and small organisations through delivery excellence and advice. I've had the great fortune in my career to work with clients internationally, from NASA at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory to Defence and Fortune 500 companies.

I am proud to have served the PM Industry as both Chair and Non-Executive Director on the Board of the Australian Institute of Project Management, and have served in multiple senior capacities in governance, transformation and capability since 2006.
