Poole, Dorset (PRWEB UK) 24 March 2014 -- The role of the Project Manager is of vital importance to a business. In a recently published interview, Agata Swietek has revealed why she feels the Project Management at Quadrant2Design is so successful.
“We have a lot of knowledge about the exhibition industry, and this is a knowledge we actively want to share with our clients. As a project manager it’s my job to ensure that the entire process, from the initial idea to the final stand build at the exhibition, goes as smoothly as possible; I take the weight off their shoulders.”
Agata has only been working at Quadrant2Design for six months but Managing Director Alan Jenkins has branded her a “real success story”.
Alan says, “Agata is on a year’s placement with us and she has already picked a lot of extraordinary skills that will help her in the long run. Employers will be clamouring for her signature.”
Agata outlines some of the skills she needs in the job.
“Communication is definitely the most important. I need to know everybody involved in creating the stand, and everybody needs to know at what stage the process is at, all the time."
“Once everybody knows what is going on, then the project manager ensures that all the deadlines are met. It seems more difficult than it is. All the employees at Quadrant2Design are very well organised and we are always talking to each other – it would be more difficult without their support.”
And the benefits of a project manager?
“Every project is an opportunity to learn more about the exhibition industry and also Quadrant2Design’s procedures. We understand how important it is for our clients to have their stand built on time, so the whole production team is working together to make things right as soon as possible."
“We have to care about every stand we make, otherwise we will lose focus, and our client will be left disappointed – and it won’t be his fault. Maybe that is my job – to care enough to make it a success.”
Agata and the rest of the Project Management team are often dealing with around 20 projects each, so there’s very little down time between jobs.
“It’s busy, yes, but rewarding. We put in a lot of work to make sure the client is happy. The best part of the job is seeing a stand come to fruition and hearing a client tell us they had a great show. That gives us a lot of satisfaction. It’s a feeling that doesn’t wear off.”
And has Quadrant2Design ever missed a stand deadline?
“No, we’ve never done that. Our stands are always ready on time. Always.”
