A glimpse into Richard’s world of Project Management

June 9, 2023 | Project Management
Ever wondered what makes a Property Director at Project Sure leap out of bed each morning, fuelled with passion and determination?

Richard Haynes, Property Director at Project Sure, shares a glimpse into the world of commercial property management that keeps him hooked in this dynamic industry.

To keep things simple and light-hearted, here’s his Top Ten list of loves about Project Management and all things property.


  1. The Unpredictability: Every day is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re going to get. One day you’re dealing with a burst pipe, the next you’re negotiating a lease with a multinational corporation. Keeps you on your toes, doesn’t it?


  1. The Lingo: Who knew that ‘dilapidations’ and ‘service charges’ could be such fun words to say? And let’s not forget about ‘yield’. It’s like a whole new language.


  1. The Buildings: From towering blocks to compact high street shops, the variety of buildings you get to manage is truly awe-inspiring. It’s like being a kid in a Lego store, but with a lot more paperwork.


  1. The People: You meet all sorts. From the eccentric shop owner who insists on feeding the pigeons outside his store, to the high-powered CEO being asked for their favourite wall colour in the middle of a very busy week…. It’s a people person’s dream.


  1. The Negotiations: It’s like a game of chess, but with more at stake than just your pride. The thrill of securing a great deal for your client is second to none. It’s like scoring the winning goal in the World Cup, but with less running.


  1. The Problem Solving: There’s nothing quite like the satisfaction of fixing a problem. Whether it’s a leaky roof or a disgruntled tenant, the feeling of accomplishment when you sort it out is priceless. It’s like completing a jigsaw puzzle, but with fewer missing pieces.


  1. The Market Fluctuations: The property market is like the British weather – unpredictable and constantly changing. But that’s what makes it exciting, right? It’s like riding a rollercoaster, but without the nausea.


  1. The Regulations: Ah, the joy of keeping up with the ever-changing rules and regulations. Sometimes it feels  like playing a game when the rules change out of the blue just when you’ve got the ball on target!  But as long as you expect and prepare as much for changes and keep your eyes and ears open all the time for your Clients’, it’s actually very interesting to see how incremental changes lead to societal change.


  1. The Technology: From virtual tours to AI-powered property management systems, the tech in this industry is truly cutting-edge. It’s like living in a sci-fi movie, but without the aliens… as far as we know.


  1. The Impact: Last but not least, the impact you can have on a community through effective property management is truly rewarding. It’s like being a superhero, but with a better dress sense.
