Solve problems & take the opportunities

Do you need help to get your ideas off the ground and solve those issues?  Proud2Know can help make things happen.

Vanessa Proudman has both driven and followed international digital library developments across a 10-year period.

176979199 Proud2Know offers a consultancy service to help with the development and implementation of ideas or services. 

Some of the consulting topics include research support service development, stakeholder management, knowledge management, network development and capacity-building, including staff up-skilling.

We offer tailored support with project management – from conceptualisation through to implementation and delivery.

We are flexible to your needs – and your budget.  You may only need a bit of support, perhaps to kick-start your ideas into action.  Or some help with planning and quality issues. Or you might need a Prince2 project manager to coach others or to see things through to implementation. Proud2Know can contribute to solving your problems and achieving your goals.
