"Future Proof Your Career - Prepare for Automation and AI" presented by Olivier Lazar 

Our world has always been changing. In the past, most of these changes took place progressively, sometimes over several generations. Not anymore. Rapid, multiple changes now occur within one generation. Fast paced trends in digitalization, automation, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) raise key questions about the future of our profession and practices. We need to evolve to face these challenges, and adapt how we envision our own personal future.

  • What will our future as PM professionals look like?
  • What are the key skills and competencies to develop? 
  • How do we future-proof ourselves as PM Professionals?

By participating in this session, you will gain insight into how to:

  • Identify skill sets to overcome the challenges presented by the emergence of AI, automation, and digitalization.
  • Develop a personal strategy to strengthen professional resilience and adaptability, using the PMI Talent Triangle.

In addition, two (2) copies of Olivier’s book “The Four Pillars of Portfolio Management “ will be raffled off at the end of the session.
