Keynote Presentation: Developing a New PM Methodology
We’ve all been through the various courses on PM methodologies – PMBoK, Agile, DPSM, Scrum, etc. But what do you do when your client wants their OWN methodology?
Don will take you through the journey of one of BC’s major utilities as the IT department searches for a new way of managing themselves, their clients and their projects.

The power of volunteerism: project management in action
This presentation will highlight how project managers can use their professional training, experience and network to help community non-profit and charitable organizations deliver outstanding projects on time and on budget. It will also reveal how skilled volunteerism can benefit project managers with their professional development goals and enhance their career path.
Bob will share his personal perspective as a volunteer project leader and demonstrate how giving back to the community as a skilled volunteer is truly a rewarding opportunity for the volunteer, the not for profit organization and a host of other community partners and stakeholders.
