Training your organization for success

You deserve the best, so Suzanne Davenport, founder of Smart Projex, does all of our coaching, consulting, and training.

With a passion for helping organizations improve their project work, Suzanne, inspires your teams to focus on what matters most.

With an extensive background in financial institutions, education, startups, and non-profits, Suzanne has felt the frustration of juggling limited cash flows, managing smart workers who need flexibility, and keeping clients from jumping ship. She understands management’s need for reliable analytics and what it takes to produce those analytics. From seeing everything from the best to the worst, she knows what works, and what doesn’t.

She enjoys helping you move your dreams to reality. She can take that dream and help you organize it into projects that can be successfully executed. She can educate your leaders on how to move projects from start to finish. And, she can teach your teams to start smart, execute effectively, and work wonders - to bring your dreams to reality.

But be warned… Suzanne is on a mission, and has no tolerance for lackadaisical efforts, snarky (or boring) excuses, and people who don’t deliver. She enjoys working with smart people who want to transform their communities.
