How Project Managers Can Build Trust and Improve Project Performance



It's been Day 1 of #PMIcon17 and I think most of us now have sore throats from speaking so much! It's been a fabulous day of learning about our peers and helping with their queries. A few of my highlights from today:

  • Helping Anne who was struggling with knowing the way to go with her career progression and what was the best next step to make
  • Coaching Chris in understanding the agile methodology and what agile is and isn't
  • Chatting to Brian regarding cultural issues and the different types of cultures in his team

The most exciting thing about today was seeing how much passion my peers have in their careers and how much they are looking to learn over the next two days of conference.

If you can't secure a 1-1 slot, please feel free to come by the booth as there are normally a group of us sitting around, ready to chat!

Hope to enjoy a conference in the future!

Look forward to attending the next one hopefully. Please share some more photos.

I attended the PMI Global conference for the first time in the last week end - Oct 28-30 in Chicago and extremely pleased with the event and agree that it is one of the must attend events for all project managers. There is so much learning from the sessions, hands on workshops and networking with other PMs around the globe.
