New events for the autumn

PMI Finland goes back to basics – we’ll be running our ‘Learning and Working Together’ (LWT) events this autumn simulating a project life-cycle.

From Initiation to Closing, as defined in PMBOK process groups. In addition to the Learning element of each event, the Working element will apply the skills into Chapter projects – mainly the Conference 2018 project.

What does this mean in practice? 

Vaasa BRT and TEDx Vaasa on Friday 22nd September

We have BRT session on Friday morning and if you are still hungry after that to learn about innovation, technology and leadership, there is opportunity to view live Tedx event from Vaasa during afternoon (not PMI organised event).

TEDxVasa event is organised on 22nd September around theme “Progress through Innovation, Technology and Leadership”. Event starts at 12:15 and runs until 17:00 and includes ten inspiring speakers. You can claim PDUs for all PM related presentations according to length e.g. 4x 15 min presentation = 1 PDU.

Why we are promoting this to our members, though PMI Finland is not organising this?
Event is professionally set up event providing great value for project practitioners, and is free of charge.

Event will be streamed on Youtube, available for anyone to join remotely. It will be also available in TED.com.

Event is held at Hanken School of Economics in Vaasa, but is sold out. There is live streaming in Wärtsilä Vaasa premises for Wärtsilä employees, and in Ritz Vaasa for everyone free of charge.

In order to enable TEDxVasa event to grow, please go and like the Facebook or LinkedIn.
