PMI Mass Bay is Seeking Dynamic Speakers for our Premier Event, PDC 2019!

The Speaker Committee is looking for dynamic speakers to present and facilitate discussion at our monthly chapter events and our upcoming annual Professional Development Conference (PDC 2019). The conference is attended by about 300 members and guests who want to learn about new topics and best practices in project management.

The event will be held at the Four Points By Marriott located in Norwood, MA. The event opens on Thursday, September 19 and concludes on Saturday, September 21.  The theme of PDC 2019 is “Using Project Management to Bridge the Gap between Innovation and Practice” . The tracks are “Emerging Trends in Project Management” and Agile for Project management Tools and Techniques”.  Topics will address the 3 areas of the PMI Talent Triangle:

  • Strategy and Business Management
  • Leadership
  • Technical Project Management

Guidelines for speaker and presentations:

  • Topics and message must provide skills / action items the attendee can use to improve their daily practice.
  • Presentations should be engaging with real life examples and in-session exercises
  • Handouts and publications cited should be aligned with the presentation content.

Benefits of presenting at PMI Mass Bay PDC:

  • Excellent networking opportunity with other New England Chapters.
