Seminar overview

Project Management professionals bring a unique skill set to any organisation and are responsible for the delivery of major infrastructure and services both in Ireland and abroad. The characteristics of today’s projects differ from those delivered in the past and today’s project management professional must adapt and evolve to deliver those projects to their client’s satisfaction.

The seminar will focus on three themes:
1. Working with virtual, globally dispersed teams,
2. Delivering inward investment projects and
3. Decarbonising the economy
themes present in many of today’s projects, and look at the common challenges and innovative solutions that project management professionals have encountered when delivering 21st century projects.

Seminar aim

The aim of this CPD seminar is to look behind projects being delivered in Ireland and abroad and explore the project management methodologies in action. Delegates will gain an insight into the necessary skill sets required by professionals working in the area.  

Who should attend?

This day will be of interest to anyone working as a project management professional, or who has an interest in developing a career in this area. The opportunity to learn about project management applications in large scale projects and the skill sets necessary to deliver them should not be missed.
