About Event

Chiefs of Staff are often responsible for managing multiple projects, on multiple timelines, with interdependent stakeholders. Inevitably, the question, "What's the best tool for project management?" comes up. 🤔

On April 11th, we're excited to host Dominique Lear, Chief of Staff at Incandescent, to share her insights and realizations about project management over her four years as a Chief of Staff. She'll walk us through how to think about project management, and how to confidently confront the hard, knotty questions that the Gantt Charts and Spreadsheets can't answer. Don't miss out on this opportunity — see you there!

You should attend this workshop if:
- You have struggled to find a project management tool that really "fits";
- You're finding that the scope of work you need to keep track of has ballooned overnight and you don't know where to begin;
- You want to develop a "project management" mindset rather than just building tools that are quickly forgotten;

​​​​Please note, there will be a 100-person limit on this event. If you are unable to attend live, we will send a recording of the event afterwards.
