Creative project management: How to focus and get more done

People with creative minds often have a long list of unfinished projects. Why? With so many ideas buzzing around in our heads, it’s easy to get distracted.

Ambition can be overwhelming. You have endless ideas and inspiration. It’s hard to know where to begin.

Deep down you know you need to focus. You want to accomplish more and feel less stressed.

In this training, you learn how project management allows you to work through your most complex challenges. You discover key strategies to stay motivated.

Sometimes it’s better to step back from the emotions and give yourself room to move and gain a sense of progress. I can teach you a methodical process that prevents overwhelm and increases your productivity.


Topics include
  • Trade-offs: How to explore and eliminate projects
  • Overcoming the fear of starting creative projects
  • Analyzing the resources you need to execute
  • Best practices to beat procrastination


You walk away with
  • A simple, logical process to organise your creative work
  • A custom-made project plan to help you achieve your goals
  • A copy of Essentialism by Greg McKeown to help keep you focused



This activity-based training is your exclusive opportunity to enjoy personal, one-on-one attention.

  • Full day (8 hours) or four 2-hour sessions over two weeks
  • All materials provided
  • Drinks and snacks included



Sessions take place in Amsterdam but other options are available upon request.
