Crowd Sourced 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.

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

When contacted as a potential candidate for the Ask the Expert panel, I felt proud and had somewhat a sense of validation. Let me explain. Eleven years ago, during the recession, I was laid off and on unemployment. To that end, I chose to look at the other side of the coin, as an opportunity to reinvent myself and my career.

In the span of these eleven years, I have focused diligently on my professional development and career growth to have a voice. My voice is one of many, however, with a level of effort required to be in the choir, a level of commitment to not simply make oneself better, but to take it as a chance to share, grow, and contribute back to the professional community as a way to fortify and inspire.

After earning my PMP designation, I decided to put myself out there in this community, to be comfortable with being uncomfortable, to actively engage with the community as a way to solidify and expand on my understandings, assumptions, and experiences.

That was in 2016. Three years later, coming up to four, I am happy to now have this amazing opportunity to actively partake and engage in such an amazing event such as the Global Conference as an invited member of the Ask the Expert panel. It is an honor to sit amongst my peers in this fashion, with not just the ability to meet some of my online cohorts in person, but to meet others in the community as well to discuss interesting topics and learn from one another.

I look forward to being amongst the community and part of the celebration. See everyone there!
