Unlock The Potential Within
Meet the Project Manager and Business Change Agent
My name is Alexandra Wipf, and I am an independent Project Manager, Business Change Agent, Management Consultant and Business Coach with specific focus on Change Management and Project Implementation. I am a dynamic communicator, and offer the following services in my role as Business Change Agent:
Project Management (Prince2 Practitioner)
Business Coaching (ICF Accredited, ACC)
Workshop and Meeting Facilitation
My Business Background
I started my career as a strategy consultant with McKinsey in Switzerland, where I had exposure to 5 different industries, conducting projects in the areas of Marketing, HR, Strategy, Finance, and IT. I then decided to “jump on the other side” and experience line management for myself. As a member of Senior Management at a Financial Services firm in London I had the opportunity to conduct various performance improvement projects in the areas of IT, Helpdesk, Account Management and Sales, in my roles as Head of Customer Support and Operations, and later Head of Client Services and Sales. During these 4 years I started to see just how effective coaching can be to unlock people’s potential and boost their motivation. I decided to explore coaching further, and became a life coach and business coach full time. However, I soon realised that the power of coaching really lies in its combination with specific project work. That is how I found my calling as a business change agent, where I now offer the “full package”, combining project management, management consulting, business coaching and workshop facilitation, to enable successful and lasting project success.
My Educational Background
I have a Masters degree in Economics from a prestigious business school in Switzerland, with exchange semesters in Montreal and the USA. Since then, I have continued my education with various leadership, communication skills and self development programmes. I am an experienced personal and business coach, trained with Results Coaching Systems and the Coaches Training Institute, and accredited by the International Coach Federation (ACC level). I am also qualified as a Prince2 Practitioner.
Why I Love What I Do and My Commitment to You
For me there is nothing more exciting and rewarding than to help an organisation and its people to make their vision a reality and support them in exceeding everyone’s expectations regarding their project(s). And along the way, almost as a side product, it is just amazing to watch how quickly people learn new skills and grow, if they are only given the opportunity and supported with “on the job” and 1:1 coaching! Every project is a fantastic opportunity to develop your in-house talent.
What you can expect from me as your business change partner is my absolute commitment to your organisation and all people involved in the project, to make your change project a lasting success. I will support and challenge the project team along the way to help each individual grow and develop their skills, and to deliver outstanding project outputs. I love what I do, and my enthusiasm is contagious!
