Event Description

The world of project management has expanded at a rapid pace, but now, in the midst of the pandemic and all the change it brings, we need to rethink our careers and take charge of branding ourselves to be successful in the future.

In this interactive online discussion with Marie Spark, MBA PMP®, a project management thought leader and mentor to adult learners and professionals in transition, you will explore tools, resources, and most importantly an understanding of the required mindset to handle the changes coming your way.

Learn what you need to survive and thrive amid new technologies, business disruption, the explosion of Agile techniques, and the increase in virtual collaboration. It all provides opportunities as well as challenges for both newcomers to the project management profession and experienced PM leaders.
