This event is now fully booked and no further bookings can be made
This event is jointly supported by Jaguar Land Rover, Project Management Institute UK Chapter and the Association for Project Management.
The actors will bring the content of life in the form of an improvised change project story in which you will be involved with debates and practice exercises.
This exciting and experiental event will be co-delivered by Andy Taylor and Didi Hopkins and supported by the People Deliver Projects team made up of professional actors/facilitators. Topics to be explored include:
- Tackling the people-side of change delivery
- Building collaborative relationships with difficult stakeholders
- Understanding resistance to change and treating it positively
- Learning how dialogue and authentic behaviour are essential for successful change delivery
- Being seen, being heard and being taken seriously as a project professional at our most difficult moments
By putting out the issues in a colourful way, and giving you, the audience, control of the action, we hope to engage everybody in a valuable and enjoyable event. Details of the scenario and agenda can be found here
Didi Hopkins started life as a classical musician and moved sideways into theatre where she still works - (most recently on One Man Two Guvnors). She is fascinated at how theatre can bring life and energy into the skills needed to succeed in business. Didi is a part of a team at the National Theatre devising, developing and delivering action based work using theatre techniques to unlock potential around leadership, communication and change for the corporate and business sector. SKIRTING THE BOARDS was set up as a direct response to the Davies Report 2011 to bring this powerful work to enable women to take their space as equals at board and all levels. All of the work is a mixture of experience, reflection and rehearsal.
Andy Taylor heads up People Deliver Projects and a team of leadership developers, project specialists and professional actors, he is a bit of a "veteran" now of 350 consultancy, coaching and training assignments over 15 years in pretty much all sectors.
Andy has done real jobs too, being a former engineer, project manager, factory manager and general manager. His interest is not in theories and models, but in what works. In his view the project management profession has done a great deal of good which has also been heading in the wrong direction and, that there remains a strong unmet need for high quality people, leadership and team development to be provided for project people. People Deliver Projects has grown fast during the recession with 50 clients across the UK and Europe, and Andy truly believes that this is a reflection of changing thinking in our project community. His clients are moving away from over-structured, heavyweight and by-the-book approaches. People, leadership and change are the growing agenda.
Refreshments will be provided however, lunch can be purchased at the Heritage Motor Centre.
