“I phoned MetaPM and from that very first interaction with the front desk and then being put through to the key areas of responsibility, it was an incredibly positive experience. I would highly recommend MetaPM to anyone in a similar situation who is going from ground zero to wanting to launch the rocket in project management because our experience was nothing but first class.”

“I would highly recommend MetaPM to anyone who asks, and I will continue to use them myself. I find that the organisation has strong professionals that are lovely people to work with and they go above and beyond what I have contracted them to do to help make me and my delivery a success. I can’t speak highly enough of them.”

Alex Simon

CAPEX Manager, AusNet Services

“I have been working with MetaPM on and off for just over 10 years. They seem to have more subject matter of expertise around portfolio, programme, and project management [and] they seem to be more flexible than the bigger consultants that you work with. You won’t get another consultant that has that capability in-house, so I highly recommend them to any company.”
