Project Management Report from Belgium

By Kamil MROZ, IPMA Young Project Manager of 2013

International Correspondent

Brussels, Belgium



As this is my first publication for the PM World Journal, I would first like to take this occasion to thank the readers and the publisher for entrusting me to report on Project Management events in Belgium. It is an honour to hold this position and a true pleasure to write this first article to be published. And although, this first article comes during the summer months, I have to say that there have been some interesting events and activities in Belgium and the Netherlands that I would like to share with you. And remember, project management is a life philosophy; although it may be summer, try using some of your PM skills to organize a picnic, BBQ and social event to celebrate the summer!


Linkedin Publication Series – Mentorship

To complement the information in these publications, and expand on some topics like leadership and Project Management, in parallel to my monthly reports I will be publishing a monthly series of articles that you can find on my Linkedin profile. This month’s article focuses on Mentorship entitled “Mentorship – We Rise by Lifting Others!” This publication combines my perspective on how to leverage diversity (both global and inter-generational) using mentorship to drive project teams, check out the following link: http://linkd.in/1IlFItI
