On November 1, 2012 I had the privilege to speak at and attend the 2012 Synergy Projec Management Event in London, UK. It was a fabulous conference with more than 500 people attending. Considering that there were “only” about 850 people attending the PMI Global Congres EMEA in Marseile this May, the Synergy numbers are outstanding and speak for themselves. There were a number of factors which made this event very special (compared to PMI GC EMEA):
- focused on 1 day
- diverse speakers with presentation topics not so much about technical project management skills but project management in action; speakers helped the audience to think outside the box
- venue: the Indigo2 at the O2 arena is really impressive
My own presentation “Project Management and Zen: Achieving a Work-Life Balance” was very well received, too. As promised I am making the presentation available to the general public under the Creative Commons agreement. Feel free to download the ppt-file, use it, spread the message, and please share your stories.
