Project management storytelling with PechaKucha webinar

We hope you enjoyed this week’s APM Thames Valley Branch event “Project Management Story Telling with PechaKucha” by Paul Bradley, Greg Krawczyk and Kathy Stevenson.

The event was designed to inspire the use of Story Telling, to empower the use of PechaKucha, to introduce tools to improve engagement online with Mentimeter and to enable learning from our speakers. We tested a few of these objectives before and after the presentations.

We had 190 attendees which was a new record for the Thames Valley Branch. We hope you all took positives from the event and will join us on our future events.

Topics discussed:

  • How to project manage an English Channel swim: Kathy Stevenson
  • Digital Transformation – Lockdown: My Part in its Downfall: Paul Bradley
  • Plan? There is no plan… First steps into agile: Greg Krawczyk

The webinar recording on YouTube is now available in our APM resources area and also embedded below for reference.

You can continue the conversation at APM Hub - introduce yourself, raise a related idea, or join the post event at the post event APM Hub Site
