This year's Annual Conference topic is Harnessing Emotional Intelligence in the Delivery of Major Projects. There is significant research that supports the hypothesis that Emotional Intelligence (EI) drives better business performance and if we accept that, then the logic holds that EI should lead to better delivery of projects and their outcomes. The conference will explore this hypothesis, bringing EI to life via speakers and case studies from the major projects sector. 

This is part 2 of a 2 part VIRTUAL Annual Conference.
