Good afternoon everyone!
One feedback and request that came from you (our online community) was that during the conference, you'd want to hear more about the conference from those that are attending and getting a "real" insight into what it's like to attend the conference. So, this is what I've done! I've spoke to a few people over lunch about their conference so I can give you the latest insight.
Question: Why did you come to PMIEMEA19?
Hani: I wanted to get more experience from other project managers, companies, and get some specific examples that I can bring back to my company.
Collette: Im looking to earn PDUs and learn more about which career direction might suit me best/next.
Abdul: I wanted to share my experience with like-minded individuals
Question 2: Have you enjoyed the conference, so far?
Hani: Yes, on the whole. I'd like more practical examples from the topics and not just generic slides etc.
Collette: Yes, definitely. I didn't expect it to be this good! The networking sessions really surprised me as Ive got to know a lot of different people from different organisations and countries. I've made some new friends this past few days!
Abdul: Yes. I liked the variation of topics and learning more from some excellent speakers.
Question 3: What has been your key takeaway of the conference?
Hani: Focus! I've learned a lot of lessons learned and got a lot of things I can take back to my company.
Collette: Look at the opportunities that exist that I'm not really seeing at the moment.
Abdul: What I can do better in my projects towards the future of project management but also what tools I could use in my project later on.
This summary was just a quick chat over lunch but I hope that this has given you a little insight into what attendees have taken from the conference and why they attended. What else would you like to know? Comment below!
Here are two videos that I've made today with other attendees at the conference:
