Brussels: Self Worth – Empowering You As A PM

4th October 2019 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm WEST


This year’s theme is…

Project Management and Digital Disruption: Are you ready?

Project management professionals that will succeed in this age of disruption will have the right mindset; they will adapt rapidly to the opportunities and challenges brought about by new and rapidly evolving technology, with a powerful impact and global reach.
The 2019 PM Fair challenges our participants, ‘Are you ready?’ and the aim of the program is to challenge thinking, broaden horizons and put the wheels in motion to create ‘Project Managers of the future’.

The main theme will be addressed from three different, but equally important, perspectives, represented by three different tracks throughout the congress. The following outlines the perspective for each track, to provide inspiration for potential speakers in providing their abstract:

Track 1: Digital Disruption

Not intended to be a pure technical stream, but instead a practical review of technological advances from the business and project management perspective.

– Increasing awareness and understanding of emerging technologies e.g. Blockchain, RPA, data analytics, …
– Determining the realistic potential of these technologies, what is / what is not possible / what is achievable and what timescales
– Disruption – impact on organization, products and services, and strategy

Identifying and developing the soft skills to deal with the digital revolution:

– The impact of technology on the workplace, changing culture
– The innovative mindset
– Managing diversity / virtual teams
– Stakeholders – guiding them through the digital minefield, from virtual to reality
– Digital competencies, digital awareness, digital learning

Track 3: Project Management in the New Age


Self Worth – empowering you as a PM

To have impact with leaders, it takes confidence as well as competence.
A deep sense of your own value gives you the solid foundation needed to tackle today’s tough challenges.
In this session, we explore what
self-worth is and how it differs from self-esteem and confidence. We look at how to build that deep, unconditional friendship with yourself that boosts performance, enhances resilience and allows you to meet all challenges with fresh energy and confidence.

The PMI Belgium Chapter has a long-standing tradition of organizing an Annual Congress, now known as the PM Fair, in the beginning of October each year.

The event will be set up like a Fair and will offer a fertile ground for professional interaction, networking and knowledge sharing. It will provide an opportunity to exchange ideas, opinions, values and best practices with professionals from different industries/organizations in an informal environment. It will encourage active participation in various PM roles at special booths. It will also allow sponsors/authors to demonstrate their products or services to a targeted group of professionals. In nutshell, it will be a very special, very dynamic and a very friendly “Market” of Project Management.
