This year’s conference theme is:
“Accommodating for the Human Factor in Project Management”


Thursday, May 23, 2019 - Workshop Topic: Solving the People Puzzle

In this session, you will discover, experience, and apply key strategies and behavioural insights to better connect with others by design and not by chance. With every interaction, you will be able to establish and make a rapport with people that you were not able to in the past. JJ will provide further short video updates on what to expect and to get you motivated for the event.    


Jean Jacques Brun or JJ, as he is also known internationally, is a man who is driven, focused and highly favoured. In 1999, after completing his tour of duty within the Canadian Forces (15 years within the Intelligence Branch) JJ founded DHC Training & Consulting Group Inc. (formerly JJ Communications Inc.), a training and consulting company dedicated to inform and enlighten people on the subject of Human Behaviour and effective communication practices across cultures. JJ has seen firsthand the revelation such knowledge can bring to personal and professional relationships.DHC Training & Consulting Group is founded on the belief that knowledge of Human Behaviour is a skill that should be shared to enrich individuals and organizations.

Anyone looking to better understand themselves and other people will find what they need with JJ.


Speaking to everyone from industry leaders to students, JJ has helped thousands of people learn to relate and communicate more effectively across cultures, in their own businesses and personal lives. His years of service within the field of Human Intelligence (HUMINT) for the Canadian Forces Intelligence Branch fostered his interest in how people think and act. Through JJ’s unique application of the DISC (Model of Human Behaviour) methodology of understanding Human Behaviour, JJ provides the secrets to reading people and recognizing what certain behaviour indicates and how to interpret and respond to that information.


JJ draws on his many years of experience in the field of Human Behaviour with over 15,000 hours dedicated within this field in addition to his CF Intelligence Branch background to bring clarity to his training, consulting and speaking assignments. Leaders and decision makers around the globe turn to JJ to get them moving in the right direction, toward more effective communication practices. Ensuring communication is clear right from the start saves immense amounts of time, effort and lives. Learning about the communication needs and styles of other people, learning to recognize them and adapt to them, is the key to being a more effective communicator. This ability is useful from the boardroom to the living-room, from casual conversation to a hostile conversation. JJ has dedicated his life and his business to learn the principles of Human Behaviour and effective communication practices across cultures. That commitment shines through in everything he does.


In these lively and revealing interactive sessions, world-class communicator JJ Brun, demonstrate why people often feel, think and act the way they do. His audience gain valuable insights to enhance their interpersonal skills and learn the secrets for effective workplace partnerships…the ability to effectively interact with others in order to celebrate their differences vs. tolerate their differences.
