Hi, I’m Lara Brockie
I have over 25 years industry experience, working with entrepreneurs, small businesses and some of the largest companies in the world, and I understand what it is like to have to worry about running your business as well as working in your business.
My project experience ranges from large scale multi-million pound international projects to small startups and solo entrepreneurs. I also have significant experience in managing third party contractors and remote project teams.
I started my career as a software engineer, and then spent 9 years as an IT Service Management Consultant in London. I returned to Scotland and set up Lara Brockie Consulting Limited in 2005, where I provided Change and Project Management services to international financial services institutions.
I qualified as a Certified Professional Coach in 2010 and built my own coaching business in 2015 while also learning the principles of online marketing. I enjoyed this work so much that I became professionally trained in online marketing and business support and have since been successful in assisting other businesses with their online marketing.
I have a Masters Degree in Computer Science from the University of Dundee, and a Postgraduate Diploma in Management from Henley Business School.
