Final Summary of PMI EMEA Congress 2019 – my 3 top Lesson’s Learned



When Laura contacted me in mid-August to invite me to join the Ask the Expert team for the 2019 PMI Global Conference, I experienced a wide range of emotions.

Happiness at the chance to (re)connect with PMI staff & fellow practitioners whom I have only interacted with briefly in person in the past.

I've been involved with PMI since 1999, and while I had many in-person interactions in my first few years when I served as a director on the board of the PMI Lakeshore Chapter and helped contribute to the PMP exam in three exam item writing sessions, over the past few years it has been virtual with my work on some of PMI's standards and practice guides and my engagement in this community.

Pride that I was one of the folks selected out of all the great contributors to the Projectmanagement.com community. It reinforces my belief that if you pursue recognition it will escape you, but if you try to help out and do the "right thing", it will be a natural outcome.

As is the case with most social media, interaction in this community are low risk. At worst, someone will criticize a blog post or take exception to a discussion thread response. Being part of a team of "experts" almost paints the target on your back to be challenged in person. Well, in the immortal words of Barney Stinson: Challenge accepted!

I look forward to seeing you at the 2019 PMI Global Conference!
