Lunch and Learns

If you want to get a flavor of an important Project Management or Project Leadership topic consider one of Calleam’s “Essence” series of lunch and learns.  Available to organizations throughout the Greater Vancouver region our essence series consists of a set of 1-hour lunch and learn sessions, each of which addresses a single core topic. The lunch and learn sessions condense our other training programs down to their core and present the information in fun bite sized chunks.

Sessions can be booked individually, in groups or as a complete set.  A great way to spark discussion or to fill in a few blanks, Calleam’s lunch and learn sessions help keep an organization thinking, talking and participating. The following list outlines the topics we cover most frequently. Other targeted discussions can be arranged on a request basis.
