Caralyne Blackburn

I have worked in technology and project management for over 10 years and am a proactive self starter, can multitask better than most and effectively manage my own time. My communication, presentation skills are excellent and I look for the positive in all situations.

I have a keen interest in learning new things and keeping my skills up to date. The demands of my job are such that I am kept on my toes and I have learned to both proactively chase the heels of vendors and those where a dependency exists as well as to respond in a timely fashion to keep a project on track. I like to be challenged and am seldom kept unoccupied with my work. Iā€™m just as comfortable leading a team as I am following a leader ā€“ whatever it takes to get the job done!

I take great pride in partnering with clients, understanding their needs to discover the best solutions. With a strong creative mind, I am an effective collaborator working well on both end to end projects and shorter chapters; adaptive in communication and creating best practice.

Talent, be it Vendor or People are key to every effective team and and with a solid and expansive network, I am able to fill the skills, knowledge and capability gaps that consistently crop up through effective sourcing and engagement strategies.
