In the fast-moving, deadline-driven environment of a marketing team, planning and executing projects like a well-oiled machine is critical. However, most marketers didn't learn the basics of project management in school. Instead, we're expected to pick them up on the job. There's little more awkward than having to tell your boss that you've missed key deadlines or that a project has run sorely over budget because your management skills arenít up to par.
Stop trying to organize on the fly and putting in overtime to stay on top of your work. Join us for this free seminar to learn the basics of project management. You'll walk away with the skills to manage your resources and get everything done on time, so can avoid future uncomfortable conversations with your boss (at least about project management).
