Webinar: Social Intelligence: Why we need it and how we can get it. March 26th 2020
Our first webinar of 2020 hosted by the UK Chapter of PMI went ahead without a hitch. We hope you enjoyed the session and find it useful to you in your current circumstances.
We note that a number of registrants from UK and Ireland were unable to access the event, as there is a maximum capacity of 100. So we had a full virtual house!
For those who did manage to attend the webinar, and if we have your PMI member number, you have been automatically registered for the PDU.
For those of you who didn't register, or weren't able to join, there is another opportunity for you to do so here:

Mid West Project Management Forum (MWPF) - February 27th 2020
Cook Medical, Limerick
The latest event of the Mid West Project Management Forum was hosted by Cook Medical on February 27th. This was the best attended event to date with almost 60 PM professionals from across the region representing a range of organisations and industries including financial services, education, consulting and manufacturing there on the day.
The topic was ‘Project Failure and Remediation’ which was explored by an expert panel of Geraldine Murphy (Ensure PMC), Keith McNamara (Northern Trust) and John Kelly (Kemmy Business School) and moderator Ross Redmond (Northern Trust).
There was great engagement from attendees (also experts!) and the key observations were:
- PM must own and develop relationships with executive sponsors to enable project success
- The basic of planning, communication and problem solving are still needed but PMs must develop new EQ and digital skills in order to stay effective
- Conduct a project health check today – are your stakeholders and delivery objectives aligned?
The Mid West Project Management Forum continues to grow and provides a great opportunity for CPD for PM professionals (including PDUs).
The next event is planned for May 2020 with a topic of ‘Digital Transformation’. Search for the forum on LinkedIn for more information.
