We recorded a few sessions at Project Challenge this year and we headed over to PMO Flashmob regular Sunchana Johnston as she gave a presentation on:
Good Project Planners Are Like Gold Dust
Here’s an overview of the session:
Full of humour, honest advice and empathy, Sunchana describes her own journey from an unhappy employee to a successful freelance planning consultant. Based on first-hand experiences post voluntary redundancy and a log term aspiration to become gold dust in project management terms, this is a story of transformation and discovery of what skills are important, of acquiring technical skillsets and finding the real confidence, of winning the first contract, of inspiring others and of making contracting in planning & control sustainable. Sunchana confidently gives practical advice on how to start a business, exploring the benefits of employing good project planners, the obstacles and the exciting possibilities of joining the wonderful world of freelancing in planning, with the freedom, self-direction and flexibility that this offers.
Delegate take away from this session:
- A clear understanding of what makes a good project planner
- Guidance, motivation and confidence to become one
