Training Overview

Collaborative environments largely rely on influence, not authority.

Participants will learn and practice tips, tools, and techniques to influence others.

Organizations with effective influencers enjoy better collaboration among stakeholders, improved trust among team members, and improved ability to move the organization forward to achieve business goals.

This is a good example of where someone without formal authority can demonstrate their potential as a leader.

Velopi’s courses are aimed at adult learners. We value the life experiences of our students and encourage everyone attending to contribute and to apply their existing experience to new situations.

At the start of each course, students will be provided with their instructor’s e-mail address and contact phone number. They are invited to make contact if they have any questions after the class.

Each one of the “Club PDU” courses are stand-alone offerings.
Following a continuing professional development course, many students are inspired to take their project management development a step further and we encourage our students to discuss their career plans with us. We can recommend further formal training leading to more advanced qualifications.

All students will receive a Certificate of Completion. This certificate sends out a strong signal that you are serious about the project management profession and seek to develop further in this role.

All of our instructors are Project Management Professionals (PMPs)®. Each has over a decade of industry experience and uses this to provide plenty of real-world examples to bring the courses to life.

Project management is a transferable skill. Thus these courses are relevant to all industries from Medical Devices, through Pharmaceutical, Financial Services, Construction & Engineering, the Public Sector, to Information & Communications Technologies.

This is reflected in the nature of our case study exercises. Students quickly realize that the problems they have faced in the workplace are very similar to those outlined in class.

Students also meet project managers from other industries and networking with these brings home the universal nature of most project management issues.

Yes we do! Please contact us to discuss your requirements. Many of our courses can also be delivered, face-to-face, at your own facility.

Every Portfolio, Program and Project Manager will have to manage stakeholders in order to fulfil their goals and objectives.
