#PMIcon17 is coming! I can’t wait for the Global Conference and have already been planning what I’d like to see. I’ve really been spoilt for choice in presentations this year! I’ll be working around my time on the Ask the Experts stand but here’s a few speakers/events that I hope to see.
I’m a big fan of Sir Tim Berners-Lee and I cannot wait to see his Opening Keynote. It will certainly be a really good presentation and I can’t wait to hear what he says. I’d then like to head over to Gina Grear and her presentation on: Waterfall and Agile and Lean. I think that this presentation is hugely relevant to a lot of Project Managers today.
When I’ve got time; I’ll be heading over to the PMI Wellness Pavillion. I think that all Project Managers could benefit from meditation and relaxation techniques and I think it’s a great way to spend a few minutes or hours working on your meditation strategies. Then I’ll be heading over to the PMI Escape Room to brush up on my team building techniques and doing a bit of ‘practice what you preach’
I’ll be on the Ask the Experts stand on Saturday afternoon but if I have time, I’ll be seeing Andy Kaufmann’s presentation on: “How to make better choices for you, your team and your projects”. If you can, don’t miss the Happy Hour on Saturday night. It’ll be a great way to network and relax with fellow Project Management colleagues.
Sunday will be a fantastic day for presentations in the PMI world. I’ll be trying to get to the presentation by Steve Mayner on: Opportunities for Project Managers in the Lean-Agile Enterprise with SAFe. I’ve done one project with SAFe and it was definitely a difficult process for us so I’ll be looking to learn more! Another presentation I’ll be looking forward to is Jeanine Izzo’s presentation on “Fire Prevention 101: Four traps that keep you fighting fires”
Monday will be another day full of fantastic presentations. I’ll be starting early with Jim de Piante’s presentation on “I see what you are saying: How to communicate better visually” followed by George Jucan’s presentation on: “Stakeholders: The ultimate key to project success”.
I think this year’s conference will be one of the best yet as I’ve never seen such a varied and comprehensive offering!
Don’t forget that I’ll be on the Ask the Experts stand at the following days/time if you’d like to come and connect with me.
Saturday, October 28th 3:00pm – 4:30pm
Sunday, October 29th 1:00pm – 3:00pm
