Shekira Preston

  • Project Coordinator

I am a PRINCE2 Agile certified project coordinator and Professional Scrum Master at SOAS University of London, and I have worked in the HE sector since 2015. As an experienced HR professional, I have always had a passion for people and numbers, having sole responsibility for the financial flow of million-pound budgets. For more than 4 years, I coordinated the Bloomsbury Postgraduate Skills Network (BPSN) – a network of leading Higher Education institutions. My key areas of focus have been Data Quality and Compliance and Learning and Development. As the Seed Corn Fund coordinator at SOAS, I managed several research projects, providing ongoing support for School-wide initiatives in furtherance of the Research Excellence agenda. I also hold a BA Honours degree in International Business, Finance and Economics and I am TEFL/TESOL teacher.
