About The Event

Join us for a lively countdown of today’s top pain points for project people and what to do about them.  

Industry research shows project managers face many challenges in running successful projects. Unfortunately, projects can derail quickly. In fact, MOST PROJECTS FAIL. Learn practical tips that you can use to be more proactive and potentially avoid pain from happening to you and your team, and set your projects up for SUCCESS. This conversation may be your secret weapon to overcoming (or avoiding) these common and painful challenges in 2023.  

Yes, misery loves company, but we are positive people. We acknowledge that pain is real in Projectland. We’ll be sharing innovative ways to get results and we want to hear about the pain that you are seeing in your world.

In this session, we will have a lively discussion about project manager pain points and answer the following questions:

* What are top pain points today?

* Why are we in this situation?

* How do we avoid or get out of these situations?

* What other pain points are you seeing?
