Brenda Day, Director 

IMG_5814-3.jpg

Hi! I'm Brenda. I have over fifteen years of experience working in planning and construction over a broad range of civil infrastructure projects in Ireland, the UK, and Australia.

Before founding Day by Day Planning, I worked as a project planner on Pacific Complete, Australia’s largest regional infrastructure project and first Delivery Partner Model. In this role, she was responsible for the preparation and assessment of detailed project plans using Primavera P6, leading software for planning and scheduling. Prior to taking up my role as a planner, I worked as a civil engineer on construction projects across the UK, Australia, and Ireland under various forms of contract. 

I hold a Cert IV in Workplace Health and Safety, an understanding of which is key in a high-risk industry where safety is the highest priority. If adequate safety measures are not an integrated part of the construction program, it can not only slow progress but compromise the safe delivery of the project. Safety is often considered something that may slow works down, but nothing slows works down like having an accident or near-miss. When managed correctly, safety measures are a key part of the program and help to ensure successful, on-time, and on-budget delivery of projects where we keep our people safe. 

I am passionate about values based growth and development. I am involved in numerous mentoring programmes, and am also a qualified leadership coach. I believe that people are the foundation of all success. My core values are:

Growth and Constant Learning

- Authenticity

- Respect, honesty and kindness

- Creative and adventurous spirit

- Connection and belonging

A peek behind the professional curtain...outside of work, you're likely to find me at a coffee shop devouring a good book, or writing in my journal. I love getting a good sweat on at the gym, and then undoing all my work by visiting a nice restaurant. I enjoy hiking and travelling. I'm happiest when the sun is shining. I love working with a team to achieve a common goal. I like people. I believe every house should have a dartboard, it's better than therapy! My Spotify Top Played Songs of the year always features Van Morrison and Duran Duran, and I'm making no apologies! As well as my day job, I find a creative outlet working as a coach, and also a wedding celebrant for friends and family. Variety is the spice of life!
