Expectations, presumptions, pressure: being a new PM

Expectations, presumptions, pressure: being a new PM

Rebecca Troth - Project Manager

Having been a Project Manager for just over a year, I still consider myself to be new to the business and learning on the job. My PM journey has been one similar to that of a rollercoaster, blindfolded. From working with large, high-pressure clients like The British Heart Foundation to small but needy startups – I really have maxed out my experience meter.

In this talk I would like to get into the nitty gritty of being a new Project Manager and the expectations, presumptions and pressures involved. I take my work very seriously, but I far from take myself seriously so bring a smile and also, maybe, a G&T.


Rebecca is a Project Manager at iWeb, a Magento eCommerce Agency based in Stafford. In 2014 she was working as a Developer/Designer/Project Manager hybrid at a small web agency when she won a ticket to DeliverConf, back when it was DPM:UK. Unsure on what to expect she jumped on a train with her mind wide open. Needless to say, she was inspired. Inspired to make that leap and leave her development role behind to focus on Project Management.

Her passion is eCommerce & Magento. You can regularly find her engaging with the community on Twitter and sharing videos in her Magento YouTube Channel.
