PMI London Event

Virtual Leadership: Practical strategies for getting the best out of your virtual projects

22nd September 2016 at 6pm

HSBC, 8 Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London, E14 5HQ


Main Speaker: Dr Penny Pullan 

How can we present ourselves authentically on our virtual projects? How can we show up wholeheartedly for virtual meetings so that our stakeholders leave them with a smile (yes really)? When so many of us work far away from colleagues, suppliers and clients, how do we form strong connections and communicate deeply when we only meet on conference calls or Webex sessions? In our fast paced world of work, where multi-tasking is the norm, how do we engage people when they are likely to be distracted and pulled away by everything else that is happening around them?

While this session will be lots of fun, Penny is deadly serious. Without leadership and engagement, project managers might as well go home. Tricky projects need far more than processes. You can expect a very interactive, facilitative session so please come with your own experience, challenges and stories to share. You can expect Penny to touch on: leadership, mind-set, identity, facilitation, risk, change, culture, and lots more. She’s likely to draw live graphics and even invite you to join in a simulation of virtual work! Her hope is that you’ll leave reinvigorated to tackle your tricky projects and engage your virtual teams.
