Professional Development Day 2017

Congratulations. You've reached the top of the project management world. Don't let your development stagnate! Sharpen your skills and learn how to:

  • Better manage your project sponsors,
  • Evaluate and address risks,
  • Communicate effectively for maximum impact.


Put the PRO back into Project Management!  PMs know excellence is a journey, not a destination. Dedication to their craft sets them apart from their peers; excellence and professionalism combine for maximum impact. The 2017 PMI-SVC Professional Development Day offers you a variety of educational opportunities to sharpen your skills and earn 6 PDUs. What a great way to learn and maintain your certification! 

Project Sponsorship - They can make or break a project. Learn how to improve your relationship to continuously delight your sponsors, providing them what they need, how they want it, and when they demand it.

Risk Management – "RISK" should not be a 4-letter word. Professionals actively evaluate these opportunities to mitigate their potential negative impact while maximizing the positive outcomes.

Open Communications – We all know that 90% of project management is communications, but what comprises that 90? Improve the content and timing of your communications to help your project and career flourish.
