Digital Project Management Consultant

I’m Brett Harned, a digital project management consultant, coach, and community advocate from Philadelphia, PA. My work focuses on solving issues that are important to organizations who want to produce quality digital projects in harmony. I love to build processes and communication tactics that work not only for projects, but for the people involved in them.

Most recently, I've worked with companies like Simple, YNPN, Navy Federal Credit Union, and a number of digital agencies. Prior to starting my consultancy, I was Vice President of Project Management at Happy Cog, where I mentored a team of PMs and managed projects for companies like Zappos, MTV, and Monotype.
