April 20, 2021 Membership Meeting: Stakeholder Engagement to Manage Risk

04-20-2021 11:30 am -12:30 pm

Linda Howard presents: Zoning out? Or Zooming In? – How Stakeholder Engagement Helps You Manage Risk in Virtual Meetings

  • Have you noticed that you easily pay attention in some virtual meetings while others put you to sleep?
  • How often do you tune out or check your email during an online meeting?
  • What is the real impact of meetings where attendees feel disengaged and start zoning out?

Whether you are hosting a virtual event or attending one, making an online meeting engaging is critically important to achieving the goals of the event.

When you are the meeting host, you are designing and conducting online meetings to achieve a specific objective.  You may want to educate or inform your attendees, raise awareness of or build consensus around a particular issue, or provide a forum for distributed team members to develop a solution to a problem.  Each meeting has a particular goal or objective. But when attendees are not able to or not interested in participating in the event, those objectives will not be met.

In this session, we’ll focus on how to plan more engagement into our meetings in advance, whether it’s a brief team meeting or a longer workshop or event, so we can keep our attendees engaged and minimize the risks to meeting our objectives.



Grow Your Skills

It is particularly important for Project Managers to maintain and improve their project management knowledge and skills to stay competitive in the market. PMP certification is a critical component. As, during the resent years, project management discipline took a step toward more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies, in addition to the traditional waterfall approach, several new emerging methodologies became in high demand. Thus, training and credentialing in these methodologies became highly sough after among Project Management professionals. It is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
