Event Overview

Utilising social media to develop professionally and build a network is the focus of this JCI London event. Networking, learning from others and the richness of ideas and discussions that are made possible by social media platforms can be hugely beneficial to us as professionals. Social media has the potential to provide fresh insight, learning opportunities, different perspectives and lots more besides. At this JCI London event we’ll explore how you can benefit from investing your time in connecting with other professionals as well as explain some simple strategies to get you started!

Joining us will provide the opportunity for you to:

– take a look at the different social media channels that are out there

– explore the benefits of social media for professional networking

– have time to dip your toe in the different social media channels.

This event is for professionals who have yet to grasp the benefits of social media and / or those who may have set up a Twitter or LinkedIn account and not yet made the most of it. It will be a really interactive evening with helpers on hand to guide you and get to try out new things.

The hashtag for the event is #JCILondon

19th February 2019 London School of Business and Finance Event type: Social

Purpose – To learn and apply the principles of project management effectively to anything that you do!

Overview

So many things we do are projects of some kind, whether it’s designing a new product / service, organising charity or training events, completing an academic degree, implementing change programmes, and more! When we kick off a project, we’re often tempted to dive right into the project’s core activities. The gun has gone off; the race to the finish has started. But if we don’t pause to consider a good project plan to achieve our goals, we might as well plan to fail. It’s important to understand the scope of our activity before starting, develop an effective plan, get the right resources, take action and reach the right goal. Accomplishing a project in this way will not only enhance our organisation’s performance, but at the same time build trust and confidence from stakeholders.

Key Learning Objectives

-Fundamentals of project management principles

-Learn how to scope and manage a major project from start to finish using hands-on case studies

-Practice using a variety of project management tools

-Practice presenting a project plan to key stakeholders
