November 4th Lunch Keynote

From a Good Project Manager to a Great Leader 
You are a good, even great, project manager that can deliver results on time, on budget and within the scope of the project manager repeatedly.  Your organization loves you and relies on you.  Did you know that when we look for tomorrow’s leaders, one of the key elements that organizations find so difficult to find is what you have in spades:  the ability to execute, to get the work done and to deliver on a plan.  This session will put aside the skills and knowledge you need to have to be a good project manager and focus on what you need to be a great leader.  We review the key areas that one would need to address to be able achieve a position as a senior leader.
  • Thinking like a senior leader - learning the language, talking the talk.
  • Thinking outside the box - creatively and critically
  • Communications skills required by senior leaders
  • Financial Management for non-financial managers   
  • The Strategic Plan – creating and delivering 
  • Creating an innovation-friendly environment
