Continuing in our series in which you get to meet and learn more about the Cloud Galacticos team, say ‘hello’ to Pippa, one of our project managers at our growing Salesforce consultancy. I caught up with Pippa via email to ask her a few questions.
Pippa Cox, Project Manager
Hi Pippa, thanks for finding a few minutes to help people learn a bit more about you. Can you give us a bit of background about yourself and your work history?
I studied Fine art at degree level which is quite a leap to my day job as a Salesforce project manager. I started working in the IT industry about 19 years ago and have always been involved in the consultancy service side of business. My roles have incorporated the full lifecycle from sales, delivery to finance. While my career has involved vendor relationship management within managed services and progressed from Project office manager to managing external projects.
What’s your story behind joining the Cloud Galacticos team?
I joined Cloud Galacticos in November 2020, but first met Phil in March of that year prior to everything going into lockdown. After learning more about Cloud Galacticos and its close-knit team, I was excited to become a part of it. There’s real talent within the team and they have a respectful way of working together. Considering I joined in lockdown and not met most of the team in person they have made me feel extremely welcome.
Tell us about your Project Management role at Cloud Galacticos, and what do you enjoy about it?
I like the interaction and the diversity of working with so many different organisations. Mainly I see the Project Manager function as someone to help, be that for the client or within the Cloud Galacticos team. The satisfaction I get is in establishing a good working relationship in order to help and ultimately complete a smooth and successful project.
Aside from Salesforce and working at Cloud Galacticos, what else do you enjoy doing?
My fine art background has stuck with me. Lockdown has actually given me the time to get creative a bit more again. My most recent hobby is in making lampshades – I have no more lamps needing shades in my house, so I think the paintbrushes need to come back out! Like most people I miss travelling. I’m excited for the time I can start exploring the world again with my family.
What tips would you have on working remotely during the current Covid-19 situation?
If you are on a break from work, then make it count and do something you enjoy. Get outside as much as possible and try to appreciate the small things.
