Call for Speakers

You’ve Got What We Need!

The Massachusetts Bay Chapter of the Project Management Institute is currently accepting proposals for our 2020 Professional Development Programming.

 

Do you have a valuable presentation or workshop for our project management community?

Our members work in program and project management environments; this is our common thread. Otherwise, our members come from a wide variety of industries, business units and professional specializations. Our goal is to provide learning opportunities for our members in a variety of formats(i.e., chapter meetings, single day workshops and webinars), that are industry-agnostic and align with the PMI Talent Triangle.

What is the Talent Triangle?

The Talent Triangle is meant to represent the three core competency areas of a Project Management Professional. We are seeking proposals for presentations or workshop topics that fall into one of these areas:

  • Project Management Techniques (i.e. Formalized project management; approaches, methodologies and tools)
  • Leadership (i.e. Topics encompassing teams and the individual. The human factor)
  • Business and Strategic Management (i.e. topical and foundational business topics.)
