The Global Young Crew Workshop, Just Around The Corner


With just a few weeks left until the Global Young Crew Workshop 2012, the whole IPMA Young Crew community is excited about the agenda for this year’s biggest project management event. It will take place in Chersonisos, Crete, Greece, start on October 26th and last for three days. Networking, engaging workshops, plans for new projects – that and much more has this event to offer. “It just has the right amount of fun, mixed with the experience of the trainers and speakers” says Jannis Soulos, project manager of the event. “It will not only motivate you, but also open your eyes to a new world of managing projects. You have to live it to believe the dynamics that build up during this event”.

During the first day Luca Cavone and Estuardo Calderon will host two parallel sessions for established and emerging Young Crews. They will provide guidance for all issues important for each Young Crew section as well as the tools helping them achieve their goals. “This event is the place where most Young Crew activities begin” declared Dr. Daniel Collado-Ruiz, Head of Innovation in the IPMA Young Crew Management Board. “It’s the major networking and career development event for young professionals in the IPMA”.

With an event theme of “Don’t panic!”, Saturday will start with an inspiring Keynote Speaker, Stacy Goff, the VP of Marketing & Events at IPMA, as well as six extraordinary workshops hosted by trainers from all over the world. Out of three streams participants will be able to choose from simulation games, workshops dealing with creativity, improvisation, communication and system thinking. This day will conclude with the Gala Dinner – not only another networking possibility, but also the time when the 2012 IPMA Young Project Manager Award winner will be announced (below).

Last day of the Young Crew part of the IPMA World Congress 2012 will be as exciting as the first two. It will start with a Keynote Speech, followed by workshops on failures, leadership and change management, and a “Meet the Authors” session in between, where a number of authors of project management books, articles and papers will attend the YC Workshop. They will talk about their planned activities during their Session at the Congress and will also be available to discuss directions of topics, content, formats and sources of project management knowledge.

The full program together with descriptions of all workshops can be found on the congress website: www.ipma2012.gr/youngcrew.html.
