The Sunday Business Post has described Fergus O'Connell as having 'more strings to his bow than a Stradivarius'.
Fergus has a First in Mathematical Physics from University College Cork and is one of the world's leading authorities on project management. His company -- ETP (www.etpint.com) - and his project management method -- Structured Project Management / The Ten Steps -- have influenced a generation of project managers. In 2003 this method was used to plan and execute the Special Olympics World Games, the world's biggest sporting event that year. Fergus's experience covers projects around the world; he has taught project management in Europe, North America, South America and Asia. He holds two patents.
Fergus is the author of thirteen business books. The first of these, How to Run Successful Projects -- the Silver Bullet, has become both a bestseller and a classic and has been constantly in print for over twenty years. His book on common sense entitled Simply Brilliant -- also a bestseller and now in its fourth edition -- was runner-up in the W H Smith Book Awards 2002. His books have been translated into twenty languages. His most recent title is The Power Of Doing Less, published by Capstone in 2012. It has sold 6k copies to date.
