Limited space remaining for popular Project Management workshop

July 19, 2019 – A limited number of spaces are remaining for the popular and much-sought after Project Management for the Practitioner workshop being hosted by Kawartha Conservation.

Specifically geared to professionals who work in the public sectors including municipalities, townships, and the private sectors such as engineering, and other organizations which support infrastructure, technology and natural resources, this highly-interactive workshop will enable participants to understand foundational project management techniques and will allow the attendees to apply the tools and templates that will be introduced in this learning event.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for people to take a highly-sought after workshop, which provides seven PDUs (Professional Development Units), at a great price and close to home without having to travel to the GTA,” said Kawartha Conservation Director of Integrated Watershed Management, Emma Collyer. “This hands-on, simulation class can serve as a foundation for anyone who manages projects.”

Scheduled for Wednesday, September 18 at the Kawartha Conservation Administrative Building, the Project Management for the Practitioner workshop will provide a number of key learning objectives to participants including;

•    Understand the Project Life Cycle
•    How to initiate projects
•    Define projects by phase
•    Manage Risks
•    Use tools to run effective meetings for your project team
•    Plan and schedule projects
•    Manage and Control your Ongoing Project
•    Close projects, and
•    Become aware of Continuous Improvement

The workshop will be facilitated by Andrea Chisholm, B.A.SC., PMP.

Andrea is a Project Management Professional, consultant and trainer with over 25 years’ experience working in project driven environments. She has extensive experience in project management processes gained from both the IT and engineering industries and provides her expertise as a consultant to companies in Project Management, Business Analysis, Business Development, Technical Support and Staff Training and Development.

“We have received tremendous feedback and interest from many of our municipal partners, as well as organizations through Kawartha Lakes, Durham and Peterborough regarding this exciting opportunity,” said Ms. Collyer. “We are thrilled to be able to offer the type of workshop that participants would have to pay a lot more for in larger urban centres, right here in the Kawartha Lakes.”

Cost of the one-day workshop is $499 per person, plus HST. To register or learn more, visit Kawartha Conservation online at
