Although we named the company after the wise words below, and we know that all your projects are ‘important’, working with us will stop them feeling ‘impossible’. Manifestly Important provides a range of Project, Programme, Portfolio and Change Management services that can be tailored to suit your exact requirements because we understand that one size definitely does not fit all.

“Don’t undertake a project unless it is manifestly important and nearly impossible” – Edwin Land

The three main pillars of our business are Consulting, Training and People – these can be supplied separately or combined as needed throughout any engagement. Manifestly Important can be called upon for short, time-critical pieces of work but will also be there as a trusted partner and advisor for the long-term.

Following three successful years providing interim Project and Programme Management services, within a number of blue-chip organisations, we are now looking forward to working with a wider variety of clients including SMEs, entrepreneurs and the third sector. Manifestly Important bridges the gap between ‘best practice’ and ‘just do(ing) it’ and, by keeping things as simple as possible, we help deliver the results you need.

Manifestly Important was founded in 2011 by Paul Yeomans. Paul is both the Managing Director and Principal Consultant of the company and is passionate about all things ‘Project Management’. Paul has delivered a number of PPM/P3M training sessions across local academic institutions (as a visiting lecturer) and was also the Higher Eduction liaison for the Association for Project Management’s (APM) Programme Management Specific Interest Group between 2014 and 2016.
