Event Details

Motivating your Team


Learn how to get increased effort and focus from colleagues on a project team, and/or across a collaboration or alliance!

Who should attend - and why it's important

  • Those in a small or developing organisation, where roles and responsibilities are fluid or insufficiently addressed. Your role, and those of a project group may not be well defined; you may have been pitched into a project role without much training or preparation!
  • Those who manage teams where the functional members serve more than one, or many projects. Focusing attention on yours is important, but difficult.

The course will be delivered online, over 3 online sessions on 3rd, 4th and 8th March 2021. It will be very interactive with Q&A, group discussion, break out team work. Participants will get access to online resources and guidance notes, for 12 months after the course.

The cost of the course is £250.00 per person (+ VAT @ 20.0%).
