As the busy Autumn months get underway our Associate Editor, Amy Hatton, is back to host a new live lunchtime webinar, in partnership with Mail Manager (part of the Arup Group).

Wednesday 6th October, 13.00 BST


For project professionals, costly, contentious reworks caused by siloed or ineffective communication are a real pain point. Geneca research tells us that 80% of project professionals spend at least half their time on rework, whilst poor communication costs companies on average $62 million per year! And, in new world of remote working, the risk becomes even greater.

With a staggering 319 billion emails sent and received globally every day, email is still the most used tool for collaborating on projects. But everyone manages their inbox differently. The risk of derailing project delivery through ineffective email management is a truly business-critical one.

What’s more, reworks don’t just cost time and money. Poor communication leads to stakeholder confusion, delayed decision making, PMO frustration, and an increasing communication chasm between PMOs, project sponsors and executive teams.

Amy is working with Mail Manager’s Ben Thomas to deliver a lively, interactive session packed with insights, strategies, and practical takeaways to help you:

  • Reduce reworks with efficient communication and collaboration from day one.
  • Improve key stakeholder engagement and decision making.
  • Eliminate communication blockers to project delivery.
  • Protect commercially sensitive information across mailboxes.
  • Close the communication chasm between project teams, the PMO and senior executives.

We caught up with Amy recently, and she told us “I am particularly looking forward to hosting this webinar, since behavioural and communication management have been a special interest of mine throughout my career.

“Collaboration by email is second nature to us in the modern world, but siloes, inconsistencies and inappropriate email strategies bring an unwelcome and very real element of risk to project delivery.

“I’m intrigued to discuss the issues with Ben and share his insights and expertise with our PM Today readers. I hope that this webinar will give delegates the practical toolkits and knowledge they need to break the cycle and bring visibility, transparency and productivity to their collaborations. It will be a big step towards ensuring that projects succeed first time around and the risk of reworks is significantly reduced.”
