The first PMO Flashmob of the new year takes place on Thursday 26th January in Angel Islington and we’re kicking off the year tackling a subject that every single PMO can struggle with – stakeholder engagement and managing relationships.
We were inspired to take a look at this subject because we keep hearing lots of conversations like:
“The PMO is not seen to be adding value to the organisation” or:
“Senior management don’t really know what we do or are capable of doing” or:
“We need to do better at selling the PMO to people”
So we thought, “I wonder where we could pick up some really great insights and thinking that would help us address these common problems?”
Luckily for us we have Fran Bodley-Scott to call on. Fran is a marketing & business communications specialist with many years experience in areas such as product development, internal and external marketing, organisational change and stakeholder engagement. She’s also worked in project and programme management – and she’s a keen PMO Flashmobber! Just what we need to tackle the subject.
Fran has put together a great programme which looks at some of the areas of marketing that we can adopt when dealing with our PMO challenges.
She’ll be introducing a framework for PMOs – the 5P’s – which will provide practical ideas on helping you change the perception of your PMO within the organisation – and how to better engage with your stakeholders and build better relationships within the organisation … to ensure the ongoing success of the PMO.
The event takes place from 6pm. The main session starts at 6.30pm, finishing at 8pm. Time is available afterwards to continue enjoying, drinks, nibbles and chats.
This event is a mix of seminar and interactive sessions.
Sessions cost £36 which includes refreshments.
