7 Things You Need to Know…

Dubai, 14 February 2023

Whatever you create, you need to know how to effectively and efficiently lead a diverse and complex mix of stakeholders to successfully complete your project.

This introductory Masterclass is an ideal starting point if you need to contribute to or manage projects at work or home, while not necessarily being a formally trained project manager.

It is also suitable if you are considering undertaking a project in the near future and are seeking to learn and apply essential project management knowledge and skills.

What are the 7 things I need to know to better manage projects?

  1. Everything, everywhere
  2. Why no one cares what you think
  3. Do more – meet less
  4. When to micro-manage
  5. Veni vidi vici
  6. Just say yes
  7. The defnition of insanity

I would like to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to the whole team for developing such an interactive and practical course content.

Who will be teaching me?

Like all our Certified Project Trainers, Glen McNeill, CPD is:

  • a proven industry expert with a minimum of 10 years’ practical experience in leading complex projects, programs and portfolios of work
  • an inspiring communicator
  • a creative and critical thinker, and
  • a trained educator, facilitator and mentor.

Importantly, he is not a professional lecturer who has only learned project management from text-books and classrooms.

Glen superimposes a wealth of project skill and experience from all stakeholder perspectives that brings project management to life.

Thank you also for the free project management resources provided. I myself have found them very valuable to both to how I learnt during the course by using them for practice but also now that I have finished I am using five (5) of the templates on a regular basis.
JESS N.Local Government Officer

Where and when is the Masterclass?

The Masterclass will be hosted by our UAE partner, the University of Wollongong in Dubai, Knowledge City.

This Masterclass will be held from 10am-5:00pm, 14 February 2023.

What should I bring?

A laptop – once enrolled, you will be able to download the digital resources that support the day’s learning; alternately, you can download and print the paper versions if you prefer.

If you’d like to bring a keep-cup and/or re­fillable bottle, we provide all-day tea, coffee and water; and if you don’t want to bring your own lunch, there are plenty of nearby food options.

I would like to specifically comment that the training I received has really enhanced my skills in project management. Upon my return, I joined the Global Environment Facility Small Grants Program with United Nations in PNG where I am currently backstopping the National Coordinator in coordinating many small projects in the country who are our grant recipient. I enjoyed my job with no difficulty and I commend the training.
