Elise Stevens Elise works with women in project management roles to reinforce within themselves their true value to their team, company & industry.  She provides a channel for women’s voices to be heard, supported & embraced in project management. It’s time for women to dream big in the industry, & to know that they can achieve their career goals.

Elise works with incredible women who have extensive knowledge, skills & passion for their career, but unfortunately the high pressure and status quo within the workplace has left them feeling emotionally exhausted; they have lost confidence in their own hard-earned skills and are considering leaving their roles.

For over two decades, Elise has worked to positively impact & innovate effective management processes. She has collaborated with a range of organisations including Queensland Urban Utilities, Ipswich City Council, Coca-Cola Amatil, Hutchinson Telecoms & Ansett Australia.
