Description


TOPS Speaker Series invites you to join us on and hear from expert speakers on Project Management.

The event will take place on Monday, October 16th from 12-1pm at 900 Bay St, MACDONALD BLOCK (2nd Floor) Kenora/Nipigon/Nipissing Room).

Presentation 1 The Accidental Project Manager

Winnie Liem will inspire us as she introduces us to the journey of Project Management for People who are Not Project Managers.

Presentation 2: Taking Our Project Management Careers to the Next Level

The project management field out there is pretty crowded out there. It’s no longer enough to be just really good at what you do. You have to be more. It’s no longer build it on time, on scope and budget. You have to add value over and above the normal requirements of project managers.

So how do we add value? How do we stand out in the crowd? How do we get recognized in this very crowded field?

David Barrett will get us thinking about what we can do to innovate our careers and get to the next level!
