CROSS ORGANISATION EVENT PMI Belgium Chapter & Ie-net
15th March 2017
With the theme
We are very pleased to invite you to the cross-organization event between PMI Belgium and ie-net ingenieursvereniging vzw on 15th March 2017.
This gathering of Engineers and Project Managers together is a unique opportunity to expand your professional network, learn from diverse backgrounds and share your experience through a real project in Ghana.
The “Accra Flooding Initiative” has been launched by the “PMI Ghana Chapter” together with “Project Managers Without Borders” with the aim to set up an action plan for the prevention of regular flooding’s in the Accra region in Ghana.
Ie-Net is a dynamic network of bio-, industrial and civil engineers in Flanders and Brussels and provides a contact point between engineers, authorities and training organisations.
Project Managers Without Bordersngaging the global project management community through collaborative and sustainable projects that make a positive difference in the world.http://www.pmwb.org/(PMWB) is a Not-For-Profit organization e
The theme of the event is different from our typical ones and will give you the opportunity to learn and share your project management skills and experience with engineers to develop solutions to a real challenge facing the authorities in Ghana. As the Ghana capital (Accra) is flooded on a yearly basis, the local authorities are looking for ideas for a complete stakeholder analysis, impact analysis and help with the design of engineering solutions.
This workshop will allow us to provide expert advice and recommendations from international and recognised Engineers and Project Managers to the Accra authorities on the recurrent flooding’s in their city.
A lot of good reasons for the project managers to attend this workshop:
– Excellent brainstorm possibilities and group discussions on technical or environmental issues, fully in line with PMBOK.
– Help an NGO to realize a true project
– Learn to use brainstorm techniques
– A project which could be part of your Corporate Social Responsibility track
We will have the pleasure to have Kris Troukens (PMP) as the speaker and the facilitator for this event. Kris is a member of “Project Management Without borders” and is working on this project in Ghana for which he needs the support of engineers and project managers.
He has been in contact with the top Ghana authorities who will support the project locally.
Block the date of 15th March for this great learning and networking opportunity together with Project Management and Engineering colleagues.
A cocktail will be organised after the session to facilitate the exchanges.
