Over the last two years, PMO Flashmob has gone from strength to strength.
It’s everything we wished for PMO Flashmob when we started it back in 2013. Just a place for a group of PMO practitioners to get together once a month, to have a drink and a chat.
Something that felt welcoming for anyone trying it for the first time and a good vibe that made people come back again.
Over this summer we wanted to keep the events more social, after all, you work all day and it felt like pub meetups were the right choice, nothing too heavy!
Two Things We’ve Learnt
Like any good PMO practitioner, there’s been a few lessons learnt sessions post PMO Flashmob events. We’ve definitely seen two distinct types of PMO practitioners over the last two years.
There are those that really like the informal meetup in the pub for a chat after work.
Then there are those that really like the events what we called “Learn and Live” nights where we put on a seminar first then head to the pub afterwards.
Introducing Mini Masterclasses
The whole idea with PMO Flashmob was to appeal to a wide PMO audience.
With that in mind, from this September we will be alternating the events on a monthly basis.
The 24th September will see the launch of our new Mini Masterclass nights.
These evenings will be focused on an area that you, the PMO practitioner working today, wants to hear and learn about.
The first Mini Masterclass will be launched in a few days and we’ll let you know what the topic is about and how you can book for that.
With each Mini Masterclass night we’ll be picking the topics based on what you want. You can let us know what you’d like to see at anytime by leaving a comment on the website, contacting us and telling us directly at any of the evening events we run.
We will still be in the pub
We will still be running the more informal events in the pub too. These will happen on alternate months. The next one will be on the 22nd October and you can be guaranteed we’ll find an interesting pub for that.
After the Mini Masterclasses we will still head to the pub for a drink before heading home so there’s always time for a little informal networking.
We want to make these evenings as enjoyable as we can and that means finding good venues which we can hire and provide some food and sustenance for you after a long day’s work.
That means we need to increase the price to attend.
The Mini Masterclass evenings will be priced at £36 (£30+VAT) and the social evenings will be priced at £10 (£8.33+VAT)
We hope you’ll continue to see the PMO Flashmob as a unique opportunity and experience that really helps you in your PMO career.
