Fort Worth PMI Chapter Professional Development Conference (PDC)

June 14, 2018

The Fort Worth PMI chapter's Professional Development Conference (PDC) brings together project management practitioners from across the north Texas area. This conference provides you with the opportunity to learn new skills, explore new trends and network with other project management professionals.  
  

Our theme this year is Moving on Up! - From a Good Project Manager to a Great Leader. 

Keynote Synopsis: You are a good, even great, project manager that can deliver results on time, on budget and within the scope of the project manager repeatedly.  Your organization loves you and relies on you.  Did you know that when we look for tomorrow’s leaders, one of the key elements that organizations find so difficult to find is what you have in spades:  the ability to execute, to get the work done and to deliver on a plan.  This workshop will put aside the skills and knowledge you need to have to be a good project manager and focus on what you need to be a great leader.
