Janice Petley

You are here


Janice Petley has over 20 years of project management experience. Her typical assignments are definitely project management, but are anything but “typical”. Her experience spans a wide range of projects: from classical theatre at the Stratford Festival and symphony concerts in the United States, to stadium and arena opera productions in cities such as Tokyo, Munich, and Brussels. Whether it was a large sporting event at the Rogers Centre or an opera with a cast of 1000 in a bull ring in Madrid, Janice has worked on high risk, innovative, challenging projects. As many of her events were broadcast live-to-air both nationally and internationally, she fully understands the necessity of flawless project execution.

Janice’s ability to understand and appreciate both client and project requirements has enabled her to adapt to the needs of projects such as the SARS benefit concert in Toronto, World Youth Day (the Pope’s visit), and managing site requirements while touring Europe with the Rolling Stones. By drawing upon this experience, Janice is able to provide scenarios in her training which are interesting and accessible to a wide variety of people and organizations. She has a special skill for demonstrating project management lessons learned by recounting engaging, memorable stories that bridge the gap between theory and practice.

Janice has extensive experience with projects whose core deliverables focused on marketing, corporate communications, employee rewards, team building, and training and education. She has managed projects for many high profile corporate clients including CIBC, Chrysler Canada, Telus, and BMW. The not-for-profit client list includes the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Canada Games, and Special Olympics International.

She holds a BA from the University of Western Ontario, a BEd from Queen’s University, an MBA, and is designated as a Project Management Professional and a Certified Agile Project Manager.

Janice Petley is the Director of Atlantic Canada for Procept Associates and she regularly presents at Dalhousie University in Halifax and the University of New Brunswick as well as in-house to corporate customers. She keeps her PM skills current by working on social change projects that are close to her heart.
