The Prudential International Assurance Change function has worked with Mary in a personal consultancy capacity for over ten years with this relationship transforming into a wider arrangement in the past year to on-board additional resources through PPL. Mary has been central to the delivery success of the Change function and instrumental in the mentorship she has provided across the business. Her depth of experience both in the IT & Financial industry space together with her ability to resolve complex issues whilst bringing her key stakeholders on the delivery journey with heavy focus on delivery outcomes stands her apart from other consultants. Always ready and able to take on additional work, Mary is a valuable and key asset and contributes greatly to the success of the department. Through PPL we are now also benefiting from the high calibre of resource placed with PIA by Mary. This is a valuable service to the change function in terms of immediate ramp up of capabilities with supporting industry experience throughout.

I’m very pleased to share my experience of working with Mary Heskin. If you have been involved in project delivery, you will understand how the three variables of Time, Cost and Quality must be kept in balance to deliver successful outcomes. In my experience of working with Mary, she has the rare talent of managing under pressure, finding the critical path and ensuring she brings both the organisation and team along with her. I have no hesitation in endorsing Mary as a professional who simplifies the complex & delivers enduring solutions.
