Operating as usual


virtualPMO are proud to announce they have been selected to help manage a major change with Blind Veterans UK, the UKs premier organisation that offers lifelong support to Armed Forces and National Service veterans.

On 14 Dec 21, Blind Veterans UK announced that they had agreed and exchanged contracts that will see them move into Princess Marina House (PMH) in Rustington, West Sussex. The building, bought from the RAF Benevolent Fund, will be Blind Veterans UK’s new south coast home when they move from their iconic, but now unsuitable, centre in Ovingdean, East Sussex.

Faced with such a major change, virtualPMO are delighted to offer our expertise and assistance with the challenges faced by moving Blind Veterans UK from a site they have previously occupied for 83 years into a brand-new location. virtualPMO is part-veteran owned and are signatories to the UK Ministry of Defence’s Armed Forces Covenant so are a great fit for a challenge of this scale.

Client Director for virtualPMO, Jim Boyden said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be able to help manage the site move for Blind Veterans UK. The challenge of moving staff and residents is huge. While it may only be a distance of 22 miles, the bespoke nature of the care Blind Veterans UK provides to our county’s veterans means that not only must residential and medical support services be moved, but the support offered must continue seamlessly while the move is going on - it’s a challenge the entire virtualPMO Team will relish.”

virtualPMO will be working alongside the management team from Blind Veterans UK to ensure that the move keeps to a strict budget and timeframe as well as identifying and maximising the opportunities that will come from such a major change.

If you’re planning a change of any type and would like some assistance in identifying the risks and maximising the opportunities that can come from any transformation, virtualPMO can help you. We are always ready to have a no obligation conversation about the value we can identify and deliver for you now, and in the future.


This weekend, some of the leadership of virtualPMO were out and about in the community paying our respects to the veteran community - as well as simultaneously assisting with local and groups - but of course you’d expect your local friendly experts, to be able to multitask, right?


virtualPMO are to star in the next series of “The Crown”!

While the consultants of virtualPMO could be described as star quality, it’s incredibly exciting that we have been selected to feature in the next series of The Crown – sadly, this is more commonly known in full as “the Crown Commercial Service Suppliers list”.

It’s fantastic to know that we have been judged professional and diligent enough to supply services to the Public Sector through the DOS 5 framework. We aim to provide customers with easily manageable capability, fully tailored to their requirements with the practical approach we pride ourselves on.

virtualPMO Director, James Drummond-Davies, said “After a lot of hard work to get our proposals in shape, virtualPMO are really excited to be able to extend our offering to the Public Sector, bringing our unique blend of Private and Public sector experience to bear, offering the best of both worlds to our clients.”

If you’re involved in Public Sector resourcing and would like to know more about how we can support your outputs and reduce your overheads with an easily manageable virtual offering for your PMO, Project or Programme, drop us a line at [email protected]

Photos from virtual PMO's post 09/11/2020

This week, virtualPMO remembers those who went before us. Sometimes it's hard to relate to the sepia tinted photos and imposing war memorials and make the connection to the flesh and blood relatives we know, so here is one of millions of human stories.

W175288 Peggy Wynne-Ellis, The Royal Corps of Signals, was married to FX115024 Charles "Chuck" Wynne-Ellis, Fleet Air Arm Royal Navy. Chuck served onboard HMS ANSON as a Petty Officer (Airman) on the Arctic Convoys and was awarded the Arctic Star. Peggy served with the Royal Signals in Waltham Cross.

Tragically, while both survived the war, Chuck died in a freak fishing accident in 1948, leaving Peggy to bring up 2 children on her own, in a post war world. Their sacrifices and their efforts are not forgotten.


Here at virtualPMO, we've always been very clear that we're here to help you change for the better - but we're never afraid to take advice when needed. To that end... we've revamped our website and are looking for your kind feedback on what you'd like to see from a company like us. Do you like what you see, or do you see what you like? Is it music to your ears or are we tone deaf? Like all great change organisations, we'd like to use the strength of Facebook to learn and grow - so hit us with your best suggestions!
Thanks in advance!


In excellent news, as a partially veteran owned consultancy, virtualPMO have proudly signed the Armed Forces Covenant today, to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to our Armed Forces Community.

While we're only small at the moment, we hope to share the very best values of our Nation's Armed Forces with the Business world - leadership, tenacity, robustness and good grace and humour under pressure. We're also excellent at making wets, spinning dits, shooting the breeze and making sure we're smart as carrots.

This week sees Jim trying to explain a change using only his lunch. We do like a challenge.

Mathematically speaking, how is it best to transform?
Often consultancies get in wrong when dealing with change or transformation, when rather than seeing the proposed change through the eyes of human interaction and collaboration, they view it mathematically, making it difficult for the client to clearly understand what is going on.


The importance of bacon when it comes to treating people right
I was idly cooking breakfast this morning, when the wonderful smell of frying bacon triggered a long forgotten olfactory memory buried deep in the old memory bank. It suddenly reminded me of the importance of treating people right in the working world.
Suddenly, it’s the early 00’s, I’m young again, and I’m back serving on a British Army Bomb Disposal Team in Belfast. I’m, what, nineteen? Twenty? It’s the height of silly season...


You dont know everything.
But neither do we.
That's why we make a good team.
We at virtualPMO have never been complacent enough to think we know it all. As a new start up, we appreciate and recognise that our maturity is always developing and it’s a truism of both life and business that no one knows everything - and if they tell you they do, they’re probably fibbing to you.

It’s a brand new world out there today.
Not only are the children happily walking back to school, but colleagues and friends across the world are slowly returning to COVID secure offices to slowly recover from the turbulence and disruption caused by recent events.
It would be a foolhardy business that didn’t look at the events of the past year and not try and identify the opportunities that they take to improve going forward.
