My PMI Journey as a Mentor

I passed the PMP exam in 2014 and could take on more complex projects in the company I worked for. At the end of last August, I quit after 13 years as a Senior Project Manager and am now teaching project management to PMI standard at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) and I have founded my own company, 3C Keller, to share best practice in project management across industries; consult, coach and communicate with organizations and teams, enabling them to complete projects successfully.

Moreover, having been a mentor in the PMI mentoring program since spring 2019, I have had the chance to test and sharpen my coaching and mentoring skills. My mentee was very grateful and she is now registered to take the PMP exam herself. I am very proud of her.

I truly enjoy having mentees and being part of the mentoring team at PMI Switzerland. Learning about other people’s companies and the difficult situations arising in their areas as a project manager are so exciting and remind me a lot of what I have experienced myself working in an international company with a great deal of change and reorganizations. It is so rewarding to share know-how and give back to the profession. This builds relationships that will last long after the mentorship will be over.
