We are delighted to announce the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in China's upcoming full-day training in Suzhou (苏州) on "Effective Communication in Project Management" on 19th July 2024.


As a project leader, a role that often leads without authority, have you ever run into one of these dilemmas?

· At an important project meeting, the more you want to impress your stakeholders, the more off the meeting goes…

· Your project requires extra support from top management, yet the key stakeholders are too busy to attend meetings or even to read your emails…

· A team member frequently delays on task delivery, but you are not comfortable giving direct feedbacks as you are not his/her line manager…

· Stakeholders may have different opinions on the project, you realize that it is too difficult to convince people with different positions and backgrounds…

· In multi-national companies, most projects require stakeholders from different nations, but it seems difficult to form close relationship with them due to cultural differences…

· In the post-pandemic era, must of your team communication happens online, but it seems more challenging to express yourself properly and accurately via chatting apps, emails, and virtual meetings…

This is a practical training designed to help participants communicate clearly and effectively in 6 project-based situations, especially difficult situations where leading without authority is needed. This is not a theoretical training on how effective communication works or what phycological tricks are behind it, instead, it focuses on practical techniques which could bring visible improvements in class.


· 在重要的项目会议上,你想要给关键干系人留下好印象,但往往越重视,越适得其反…

· 项目需要管理层的支持,但是相关领导太忙,没有时间参加会议,甚至没时间回复邮件…

· 项目组员经常不按时交付,但你并不是他的直线经理,因此难以给出直接的意见和建议…

· 干系人对项目有着不同想法,但你发现要说服不同背景和立场的人实在太难…

· 外企中很多项目需要和不同国家的干系人打交道,但因为不熟悉对方的文化背景和沟通习惯往往难以建立紧密的关系…

· 在后疫情时代,多数团队沟通在线上发生,但似乎通过聊天软件、邮件、线上会议很难准确表达自己…
