Interview with Peter Power, UNICEF Ireland

In 2016, Raymond Poole, CEO & Founder of PM Summit conducted an on-stage interview with Peter Power, Executive Direct at UNICEF Ireland at the PM Summit's annual conference. The purpose of this interview was to build awareness amongst project management professionals and agile practitioners to the diversity of projects by focusing on an organisation like UNICEF. The objective was to challenge the audience to think outside their comfort zone and see how they could apply project management processes and knowledge areas to a crisis managed environment.

We received an overwhelming response to the initial interview that we decided to record the interview at UNICEF Ireland office and publish it to our YouTube channel to allow a wider audience experience the powerful message received.
