Biggest PM Mistakes – Stories
Host:  Frank Turley

 About the presentation: 

Frank has invited 8 project managers to share their Big Project Mistakes. This give a great insight into why they mistakes were made, how to deal with them and what they learned.

It important to be open about our project mistakes as this is the best way to learn from our own mistakes and other people's mistakes.

Bio Speaker:

Frank is on a mission to help aspiring project managers gain practical experience. He does this through his writings, sample projects, tips, and innovative ways of teaching the PM methodologies..
We learn to be better project managers not by attending a three day classroom training, but by gradually learning and practicing new skills and constantly keeping on the edge of our comfort zone. Frank would like each organization to provide their project managers with a skill development plan, and this is why communities like PMI and IPMA are so important.
Frank is co-creator of which is a lightweight approach to project management and make project management easy to teach, learn and used. He is also a trainer for PRINCE2 Foundation, Agile, Scrum and ITIL4 Foundation

About PM Fair 2021:

For more than 20 years, PMI Belgium has held an annual congress, the ‘PM Fair’, where prominent speakers of national and international reputation are invited to share their experiences and recent developments and future trends in the field of project management. This popular event is attended by over 200 PMI members, sponsoring organizations and other enthusiasts of the project management profession.

Building on last year’s successful extension of the event to become the international Benelux PM Fair, we are pleased to announce the 2021 PM Fair with the participation of the chapters of Luxembourg, The Netherlands and Belgium. Going virtual enables us to extend the existing wonderful relationship among the different chapters and to expand our potential audience to over 2000 members. Last year’s event taught us that this was a successful cooperation which we want to maintain and improve. The circumstances did change in comparison with last year and that’s why we will approach this year’s event two-sided:

  • Firstly, we plan central live online sessions for 4 days ( Monday through Thursday ).
  • Secondly, We would like to invite our Belgian members to a live event on Friday the 08th October. The sessions in our main room will also be live streamed online (you can register for them) and on top of that we will have some interesting break out sessions for our people present in the venue (these sessions won't be live streamed or recorded) of course there will be lots of time to finally network again with friends and colleague project managers. Drinks, lunch and an evening reception are included (with respect to the covid measures in place at the time of the event). This year we welcome you in the Africa Museum located in Tervuren (easy access by public transportation and by car) 

The congress will be spread over an entire week, from Monday the 4th of October to Friday the 8th of October. We intend to organize two online sessions per day, the first one at lunchtime and the second one at early evening. This way we can maximise the possibility for our members to participate at the online sessions. We will close the congress on Friday the 8th of October with an in-person closing session.
