Riz Dawood

Senior Portfolio Manager

Arm - the leading technology provider of processor IP

I am accountable for the management and end to end delivery, of a selection of programmes and projects that are delivering change to meet strategic business objectives.

I love that I work with people from all over the world and that no one programme or project is the same.

I am a hybrid worker; that means I work from home some days and am in the office other days. My day is usually spent on Zoom calls or in meeting rooms, either speaking with people who I manage or with people who are stakeholders for a particular programme or project.

I completed my degree in Business Information Systems. This gave me a good foundation in both the world of business and technology. I started my career on an IT help desk, where I built my technical and customer service skills. I then moved into project management, programme management, and now portfolio management, whilst working with various organisations in various industries. I am learning from all of them along the way!

I am excited about what my future holds!

I like to travel, explore the world, and learn about different cultures, whilst spending time with my family.

Yesterday, I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today, I am wise so I am changing myself. ~ Rumi
