APSC/HATCH Workshop: The Secrets of Project Management Revealed

Managing projects, whether as a consultant, in a job, or maybe as a HATCH intern, can be a daunting task. But it doesn’t need to be. The APSC-sponsored HATCH workshop on project management will take you through the ins and outs of setting up, managing, and closing a project in a professional manner that leaves clients with a great result and you feeling great.

Internationally experienced strategy and management consultants will teach you the critical skills of managing output and expectations, and provide you with tools and processes to help you succeed. We invite you to join us via Zoom for this free online workshop on April 14 from 3-5 pm. Register here, where you will find a Zoom link to the workshop.
