About Frank

A professional engineer who has worked as a self-employed project manager, business analyst and software developer for the last 20 years. I own and run Frank Ray & Associates Ltd, a project management consultancy I founded in 2011.

Broad industry experience and a strong track record for project delivery, my speciality and personal interest is ensuring projects deliver as expected and with no surprises. And I can even get existing projects back on track before it’s too late.

Also a trainee counsellor who is interested in working with adult mental health, former student at WPF Therapy.

Based in London, United Kingdom since 2004; previously from Perth, Australia. No plans to go back just yet.

Ask any project manager about the key to their success, and they will say that delivering a project is often more like a "dark art" or by chance, than a predictable science.

They may also say that a project going 'off the rails' was one of the most stressful things they have professionally experienced. And unfortunately, it’s all too common.
