October 2021 | Powering the Project Economy - and Building a Net Zero World by Ashwini Bakshi

Webinar Description

The United Nations recently released a report warning of catastrophe if the world doesn’t soon reverse course on carbon emissions, calling this moment a “Code Red for Humanity.” But it’s no small task to re-imagine how every facet of our society is powered – and it will take project managers and change makers to lead the transformation that our world urgently needs.

We will welcome Ashwini Bakshi, Regional Managing Director at PMI. Ashwini will share his unique insights on the world's increasingly disruptive shift toward projectization and new ways of working across all sectors and geographic regions. Ashwini will highlight the long-term global climate trends profoundly transforming the future of work itself.

These paradigm shifts are placing marked pressure on organizations and governments to ensure their relevance and operate with dramatically hyper-agile approaches. As a result, professionals around the world also need to upgrade their own capabilities and develop the right mix of technical and “power skills” to effectively lead teams and turn ideas into reality.
