Protect your Project during the Pandemic and Beyond
with Bernadette Donnelly, PMP

The world has changed.  What we knew as “normal” is gone.  But you still need to deliver your projects and satisfy your clients. If you don’t, you will not be ready when Covid-19 requirements lift.  When your clients and the economy recover, you will be outbid and overrun by your competition.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a GPS to navigate the most direct route to your ultimate destination, to successful project delivery?  The good news is that do.  Bernadette Donnelly has compiled her expertise and her passion to lead project professionals through the massive change we are experiencing. 

Her talk, Protect Your Project During the Pandemic and Beyond, Bernadette shares strategies, tools, and techniques to weather the storm and successfully land every project.  Drawing on the science of Human Dynamics and her own experience, she explains how your thinking patterns, self-talk, and feelings set the stage for your success or failure.   She describes how the old brain responds to threat and how to instantly recover from the Amygdala Hijack.   

Self-awareness and social awareness are critical ingredients for managing teams, managing project sponsors, and keeping your critical stakeholders engaged.  In this talk, you will identify different thinking patterns and learn how to communicate in a way that keeps your team members engaged, motivated, and productive.

The methods described in Bernadette’s presentation are typically not discussed in business but are critical to keeping your project teams focused on critical tasks so you can successfully deliver your projects on time and on budget.
