September 2021 | Making Workshops Work by Dr Penny Pullan

Webinar Description

In this webinar, Dr Penny Pullan will share insights into how to deliver lasting results collaboratively through in-person, virtual and hybrid workshops, taken from her forthcoming book on the subject.

As a project professional, do you need to be able to run really effective meetings and workshops as part of your role?

Would you like to feel confident working with challenging and diverse groups, and with senior leaders?

Do you want to deliver lasting results collaboratively, whatever the environment?

Most project professionals have no training in facilitation skills and yet they need these skills more than ever in these days of virtual and hybrid working.

This webinar will cover the process of designing and delivering engaging, well-run and effective sessions, starting with an initial idea and through careful, step-by-step preparation to running them successfully, despite the inevitable challenges.

We’ll touch on design for virtual, hybrid and in-person workshops and explore how to make it likely that actions will happen as a result. The webinar will also draw on aspects of neuroscience, social psychology and facilitation theory to explain where all of this comes from.

You’ll leave with ideas and tips that you can apply immediately to improve your project workshops and meetings, an understanding of why they work and, I hope, a curiosity to find out more and become even better at workshops.

About Dr Penny Pullan


Dr Penny Pullan PMP is the author of several books including 'Virtual Leadership: Practical Strategies for Getting the Best out of Virtual Work and Virtual Teams' (Kogan Page, 2016). She works with people in multinational organizations who are grappling with tricky projects: uncertain, with ambiguous requirements, stakeholders who need to be engaged and virtual teams dispersed around the world. When they work with Penny, clients notice that communication, collaboration, clarity, commitment, connection and confidence grow, and change doesn't seem quite as tricky as before!

She's bemused that her formerly niche topic of virtual leadership is suddenly something which makes sense to everyone now, when people used to scratch their heads and wonder what on earth it was that she did.
