Event Details

Think like a project manager…and get things done.

A one-day live seminar and workshop on designing and delivering projects.

If you are a medical affairs or marketing manager working in the healthcare sector, you likely lead a variety of projects with a multitude of components and several stakeholders. Perhaps you have been doing much of this work intuitively. Or, perhaps you have been mentored along the way.
