Presenter: Sarah Coleman

Those within the project, programme and portfolio communities who make effective decisions for themselves, their team and their project recognise they need to complement the technical side of their role with effective behaviours and “soft” skills. They also recognise the importance of organisational intelligence and influence in trying to get timely and relevant decisions made by others which directly impact themselves, their team and their project. During this interactive session, Sarah Coleman will share her experiences of decision-making throughout her career and will invite you to share yours in order to help identify what “good decision-making” looks like and how you can develop your own decision-making skills.

6.00pm - 6.30pm - Registration
6.30pm - 8.00pm - Presentation including Q&A
8.00pm - 9.00pm - Networking with a sandwich buffet plus wine and soft drinks
