OVERVIEW

MANIFESTO LAUNCH

This event is intended for professionals from all disciplines who are involved directly or indirectly with projects and project management; project, programme and portfolio decision-makers; and those working to achieve the UN's Sustainable Developement Goals and the UK's Net Zero Target.

You will hear about what it means to manage projects responsibly and why project management is crucial in addressing the challenges facing society today. There will be opportunities to share experiences; identify new competencies; find out how Social Value can transform business cases; and examples of some practical steps that can be implemented.

The event is organised by Dr Karen Thompson and Dr Nigel Williams of Bournemouth University, in collaboration with Westminster Business School, The Association for Project Management, PMI (UK) Chapter and the Association of Sustainability Practitioners.

WORKSHOP: HAVING RESPONSIBLE CONVERSATIONS

Implementing Responsible Project Management will require enhanced capabilities to communicate and influence others. Here is a great opportunity to focus on your personal development and get in some practice.

Facilitated by experienced project management coach and mentor, Dr Shirley Thompson, this workshop will engage project managers in discussing and practising the effective communication skills needed to be objective, yet influence the thoughts of others. The workshop is suitable for all professionals involved in delivering all types of projects, but focuses on influential behaviour with any stakeholder, including supporting others' development through mentoring.
