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



Conversations, dialogue help garner perspectives outside of what has been seen as normal. Similarities, contradictions, opinions; just some of the possible outcomes.

When we think about capacities for conversations, we have our home, workplace, and social events. But every so often, an opportunity comes along to be a part of something bigger; something completely new that is at its very core, a synergy of great minds in an encompassing industry.

Imagine an event that offered accessibility to deep experience and unlimited potential. Imagine that the purpose of this event was for sharing and collaborating. Imagine that the event was also dedicated to a select group to explicitly summarize their insights into a verbal narrative.

Don’t lose sight of the vision just yet. What if this event also were to offer the prospect of meeting individuals, of whom, only had been built virtually?

This is the picture PMI’s 2019 Global Conference painted for me. An absolutely fantastic experience that was amplified by the amazing folks I got to spend it with. Certainly, not discounting the great food and drinks either, and even with all the interesting sessions, for me, the takeaway were the personal relationships, individual conversations, and shared experiences.

Thank you to Kimberly, Laura, Marjorie, Kiron, Lori W., Dave D., Lorelie, and Dave M. And thank you to those that signed up to speak with me. I truly hope I was able to provide you with valuable insights and recommendations that help to make your path to success just a little less bumpy.
