Navigating The Project Seas in Today's Virtual World (en français)

Many teams are new to Virtual Project Management and are having to navigate through what appears to be very difficult and choppy waters; others have been operating using this approach for some time.

This course is designed to re-affirm some of the key practices that all of us should be considering/using when working and connecting with other people in the virtual project space.

This is a 3 x 2-hour course scheduled:  27- 29th May 10:00 - 12:00 (CET)

Senior Change & Project Management Consultant

Anthony has been delivering innovative and ‘current’ change/ business programmes for many years now. After a notable spell in various consulting roles looking at change from both an individual and also organisational perspective – he chose to focus primarily on helping his clients to understand the cultural aspects of communication and people enablement on projects involving any kind of change.

He is a highly accredited practitioner and has supplemented his qualifications in psychological assessment (TTI & Insights D.I.S.C © and Total SDI ©) in order to further understand the impact of motivational engagement.

As a Visiting Fellow teaching at the prestigious Alliance Manchester Business School (A.M.B.S) he has a wealth of clients who range from AstraZeneca, Fujitsu, The Cooperative Bank, RBS to name but a few.

He is sought after for his unique approaches and enlightening insights into the recent market research studies re. ‘change’ in the workplace, and how this knowledge can be harnessed in programmes and projects.
