A member of the Project Management Institute, she holds BA (Hons) Business Administration, NVQ Level 4 in Learning and Development, Business Improvement & Six Sigma Green Belt and PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner qualifications.

A passion for helping others embrace change

Jannaway Freelancing was born out of a desire to help people see the benefits of change and innovation in business.

The company was started in March 2023.  Our ethos is to empower and enable others to embrace change with positivity and confidence.
