PMXPO2011 Keynote: The Passionate Project Manager

Featuring Ric O'Barry

Not all projects are life and death...they just seem that way. For Ric O'Barry, founder of The Dolphin Project and producer of the Oscar-winning documentary The Cove, projects are very much life and death. Not just for his career or the future of his company, but for an entire species of intelligent and beautiful creature who have been exploited and abused for little more than entertainment. Ric has gone to the literal ends of the Earth and pulled together world-class teams from industries as varied as pearl diving and movie effects to find success on his project. In this exclusive presentation, he'll share his thoughts on inspiring others with his own passion and how to keep your project in perspective when your emotions might get in the way of progress.

I found the distinction between successful and significant incredibly profound.
