Finally, after quite a long waiting period, 2020 European Study Group finally started on May 28th in the form of a Zoom webinar, with a general presentation by one of the organizers from PMI Poland-Finland chapters. A renewed explanation about exams details, PMI rules and procedures regarding PMP certification requirements and other organisational aspects were the object of the first meeting.
With about 180 participants coming from all over Europe, but also from Colombia and the United States, Study groups have become a course, not just an exchange meeting. Lecturers have undergone quite a demanding selection among multiple PMP laureates candidates and PMI Belgium, this is probably a nice surprise for everybody, will have a lecturer too, represented by Nathalie Vives.
Selected by the PMI Poland-Finland organisational board to lecture in the class on ‘Stakeholders engagement’, which is going to be held on June 30th, Nathalie is a senior project manager in clinical research in Brussels and we are very proud of her presence. We compliment her for her courage and capacity.
Three sessions have taken place so far. Gabriel Szneider, president of PMI Poland, was the first lecturer. His exposure was an extremely knowledgeable and outright presentation of commonly difficult and tricky concepts and vocabulary throughout the entire PMbok and, he analysed different types of exam questions to be aware of. Therefore, multiple suggestions and considerations.
A younger project manager also from PMI Poland lectured second class. Ms Beata Basta treated about Scope management. Presentation was quite short, but, always by slides support, summarized main points. A bit neophyte to public speaking, she fostered people’s motivation explaining how long PMP preparation can take, involving lots of resistance and persistency and she also gifted the audience with a coupon to practice Udemy PMP questions for free.
