PMI UK, storytelling series, supporting National Storytelling Week.

This event builds on the PMI literary cannon relating to Storytelling in Project Management. 

Tunde' presentation: Skills Development - How to learn any skill, Master it and Lead others.

An insight into the four stages of learning and how tools, mentors, volunteering and teaching others can increase your level of competence.

Maureen' presentation: I love chocolate…!

Keen to talk about something that is completely unrelated to my research area and expertise, I decided to choose to talk about a very different topic and one of my great passion – chocolate. Chocolate (and not just any chocolate!) is something that I adore and eat everyday. I love to share it with my friends and I love to talk about it in great details.

Greg's presntation: Don’t loose your head, project management lessons from history, with King Louis XIV of France

Better known for Versailles and the beautification of French architecture and culture, King Louis XIV of France was an ultimate quality mad sponsor.

Versailles alone costing around $6bn in 1774 (circa $120bn+ in today’s money!)

He urged the audience to join him to learn about Louis' journey from vision through to the French revolution, and his management of costs.

Don’t lose your head!
