My parting thoughts on PMI's 50th anniversary Global Conference

My impressions from day one of "Ask an Expert" at #PMIcon19

Ask The Experts -- at the global conference

What Does an Invitation to the ‘Ask the Expert’ Panel Mean to Me? #PMIcon19 #Inspiration

As PMI Global creeps up on us, there is much on the go in preparation behind the scenes - are you ready to attend?

You may have already seen some promotion of the conference - this year is all about Making a Difference...Are you a #DifferenceMaker? Who do you want to be?

You may not be aware, but PMI has a pretty rigorous process to make sure that you will have the best experience when you come on out for their conferences. And PMI Global, aka #PMIcon17, will be no exception.

The organizers have stepped up their game on developing plenty of personalized learning opportunities for you. If you haven't explored it already, I highly recommend you check out their conference Career Series - this year they will have on offer:

  • Ask the Expert - where you can book a 20 minute time with several subject matter experts (and yes, self-promo...I will be one of them this year...come and meet me!)
  • Gallup Certified Strengths Coaching - where you can do an assessment and discuss your greatest strengths to excel!
  • Chicago Testing Center - where you can actually take a PMI exam on site...ready to gain a certification? Get it done here.

These are among just a few things under development, aside from the fabulous keynote speakers we'll hear, and the coaching that each of the speakers are getting to make sure that each and every presentation will be worth YOUR while to go and attend.

So, with all of this, I hope you have registered, have your travel plans finalized, and have begun to determine the presentations you want to hear - the lineup can be found here to start marking the calendar in your PMI Mobile app! 

Here's to hoping you have picked my all-new and updated presentation on October 29th, to learn about the "Necessary Culture for Soaring Performance" and I hope to meet you there!

Great trailer, Karen! I would love to attend but the distance makes it prohibitive for me. As we say in French before a performance: "Merde!"
