Welcome to the Ireland Chapter PMI Podcast. EP12 & March 2019.
In this month’s show you’re going to hear content we recorded at our national conference back in 28th February in Fota Ireland resort, Cork. This was a total sell out and I have to say, it was the best PM event I’ve been at in the decade since I’ve been going to these. Now I’m sure you’re thinking, I’m biased. But this has been echoed back to me during the event and since.
It just seemed to work very well. You’d hope it was executed flawlessly as it’s a PM conference but still…and with Barry Murphy, from Après Match fame, the MC, there was certainly a lot of humour added to it.
We recorded a number of interviews on the day with the presenters and some attendees. We also recorded the presentation that Dermott Bannon gave along with the Interview I did on stage with Jim Snyder. More on these in coming episodes.
For today, I hope you enjoy the short interviews I did with both Dermot Bannon and Walter Bradley as well as 3 clips from some of the attendees on the day as I asked them, to align with the theme of the conference, how they’ve used Project Management to turn Ideas into Reality.
Our First of 2019. Not the last. Thank you for checking in.
In this month’s episode we focus on the National Conference taking place in Fota Island resort on 28th February. It’s going to be a really great day, and in fact evening the day before. It’s also almost sold out.

Rob O'Donohue asking you for questions to put to PMI Founder Jim Snyder
Clips from the Project Awards 2018 with insights from Paul Sheridan(Tour de Munster) & Phelem Harvey (PWC)

Very welcome to episode 10 of the Ireland Chapter of PMI Podcast.
At the start of the year, we had hoped to do one per month starting in February and we have almost done that.
The numbers of listeners, month on month, have been on the rise, with more subscribers every month which is great. We’ve interviewed some great PM professionals and experts during the year…including the founder of the PMI James Snyder, the current President & CEO Mark Langley, a number of our committee members, and others from across the globe that are part of PMI chapters.
For me, it’s been an amazing opportunity and experience to get to talk PM with so many people….the common themes of career development, networking, trying out new things, and of course PDUs all come up….but giving back something to the profession is huge and very rewarding.
I was lucky enough to present at the Region 8 chapter event in Belgrade in November sharing a HOW TO guide on podcasting for your chapter. If we didn’t start this off, that would never have happened.
Before I introduce our guest for this months, just to say thank you for listening in over the year, for your input, feedback, ideas….all have been taken on board. We’re starting to plan for 2019 already….with more show, interviews, and more.
2019 is another huge year for the chapter with the National conference in Cork and then the PMI congress and LIM in Dublin in May.
So our guest this month’s episode had an interview with Brantlee Underhill.
Brantlee Underhill is the Director of Global chapters for PMI.
Brantlee talks about her 20 year journey with the PMI and the huge change that has happened during this time.
She shares insights on:
Growth of PMI over the 20 years from 30k to 500k members
PMI 2.0 Strategy Transformation
Customer Centricity & Thinking Differently
2019 and the 50th Anniversary of PMI

Brantlee and Project Management – How she got involved in this area
Brantlee and Podcast interests personally
Enjoy the interview & have a great Christmas & New Year. Back in early 2019
Welcome to the Ireland Chapter of the PMI Podcast. Episode 8.
Pat Lucey talks to Rob O’Donohue, who is the Communications Director of the Ireland Chapter of PMI.
During the interview, Pat talks to Rob about his early career and how he moved into to Project Management. He talks to him about the idea behind the podcast, how Rob’s own personal podcast, called 1% Better, has grown and asks him to share some of his learnings from that. Finally, Pat asks Rob about areas that he’s improved in over the last couple of years, and the value he’s gained from being an active volunteer and member of the Ireland Chapter of the PMI.
It’s well worth a listen.
Hope you enjoy.
In this episode, I talk about the Member Communications Strategy for the coming year. I also interview Frances Keating, the Outreach Director, on her journey in the world of Project Management and with the Ireland Chapter.
At the end, I provide details on you can get in touch, provide feedback, ideas, suggestions to me or any of the PMI Ireland Chapter committee.
I really hope you enjoy the first of many podcasts we'll be recording and releasing in 2018.
