About this event

Debbie Bird's recent experience joining the project to launch the Association of Project Management Hub, a member only community and what she learnt

Debbie has numerous years’ experience managing and supporting a diverse number of communities within the charity, parenting and nursery sector.

When Debbie joined APM in January this year she had a tight deadline to launch the APM hub by March. Tasked to build the new membership community for project managers, she hadn’t anticipated the project would be launched in the middle of a pandemic with the country in lockdown due to COVID.

Join this session to learn from her experience, what steps worked, what didn’t and what she is focusing on now.

After the presentation we'll divide into virtual breakout groups to discuss what we learned and how we might apply it to our own communities or share current challenges or experiences. We’ll focus on learning and sharing in a supportive and constructive way and you’ll leave with practical and helpful ideas.
