Meet the Speakers

Lenka Pincot

Chief of Staff to the CEO of PMI

"I'm excited to introduce you to the most recent research and insights that are shaping the future of the project management profession. During our discussion, we'll delve into the profound effects of artificial intelligence, the significance of systems thinking, and the emerging trends in hybrid methods of working that are revolutionizing the field."

Petr Karásek

GTM Manager Low Code, Microsoft CEMA

“A year ago, ChatGPT was published and unleashed an avalanche of interest in AI, one of the milestones in the rapid evolution of technology. In my presentation, I will present our vision of how technology will impact the future work of project managers and what opportunities technology holds for companies as a whole. How technology can support innovation and transformation of organizations.”

Leonid Kushnir

Change Management Professional, Facilitator of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®

“Are you tired of unproductive meetings that only result in more tasks? Are you hesitant to embrace change and stick to outdated practices? LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® offers a better way to approach future adaptability and can help you overcome your fears and be better prepared for the future. Let me help you step into the future.”

Pavel Kuhn

Kogi CON Managing Partner, Surfey CEO & co-founder

"In today's ever-changing world, organizations grapple with the need for adaptation, realizing that success goes beyond project tools and techniques. Join me as I explore how mindset shifts and a transformational culture play a pivotal role in organizational change, emphasizing that it's about a mental shift as much as physical practices. Discover the key role of culture and mindset in change adoption or resistance."

We'll also address advanced aspects of global projects, like cross-cultural team management, remote work, and international regulations.

FAQ

Where will the event be held?

Optional program and Official program will be held in Microsoft office. For Afterparty, we will move to Turnovská pivnice Brumlovka, which has the same address. Both places can be found under this location: Delta Building, Vyskočilova 1561/4a, 140 00 Praha 4.

How to get to the conference?

The easiest way to get there is by using the C metro and getting off at the Budějovická stop (this option also applies to passengers arriving by train at the main train station). From the metro stop, you can either walk to the Microsoft building in 15 minutes, or you can use the free shuttle bus BB1 operating on the route Budějovická (Olbrachtova Street) - Brumlovka - Delta.

The next closest bus stop is Vyskočilova, which is right opposite the Microsoft offices (bus 118 or 170).

We cannot provide parking in the Delta building and therefore encourage you to use public transport or taxis.

What if I arrive by car?

Unfortunately, we cannot provide free parking in the Delta building. In case you decide to arrive by car, you have following options:

- In the surroundings of the Budějovická metro station you can park in orange and purple zones for 20 or 30 CZK/hour. A little further on in Prague 4 you can park directly on the street for free - the location without paid parking zones starts below the level of Jižní spojka.

- Parking in the DBK shopping centre garage is free for the first hour, each additional hour costs CZK 50.

- Use of one of the public car parks in the Brumlovka zone which you can find at: https://www.brumlovka.cz/en/about-us/completed-projects/public-parking-at-brumlovka. Aboveground public parking can be found on Za Brumlovkou and Želetavská Streets and by the Bethany Community Center. Non-stop underground parking is available in the buildings Brumlovka, Filadelfie, Delta a Building G.

What will the morning Lego® Serious Play® workshop be about?

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® began as an experiential process designed for use in guided workshops with adults to prompt dialogue and encourage reflection, as well as develop problem-solving skills and use of imagination. However, SERIOUS PLAY® sets like the Starter Kit are also suitable for building critical thinking skills in kids 6+. Each set is designed to enhance different skills, such as reflection and dialogue, which will enhance the workshop experience. This innovative approach to interaction is a valuable asset in business as well as education and helps participants open up through the approachable medium of play.

You can find more about the method through Lego Open Source Introduction or on the website of the workshop facilitator - Leonid Kushnir.
