Meet & Greet, Knowledge Sharing at British Telecom
PMI NORTH INDIA CHAPTER

PMI North India Chapter organized a Meet & Greet event for new members in October. It was an opportunity for those who had recently joined the chapter to network with peers and chapter board members. The chapter had organized two talks during the event, on “Best Global Practices in Transition and Transformation World,” and “The Challenges in Telecom Industry in Relation to Security and Cloud Technology Framework.”
 
These bi-monthly events enable new members to network, learn about the board, explore volunteering opportunities, learn and share best practices, and explore speaking opportunities.
 
On 10 November, the chapter joined hands with British Telecom to deliver a knowledge sharing session on “Global Project Challenges and Mitigation by Applying Project Management Practices.” It was held in British Telecom’s Gurugram campus.
 
It was the second event in the series and enabled the free flow of knowledge, data and best practices. Some of the challenges that came up for discussion were the transformation of the telecom industry due to lower revenues, high operational expenditure, stiff competition, exponential growth in data traffic, and new disruptive technologies in network communications. Around 140 delegates attended the seminar.
