Here’s what you missed at our Professional Development Conference

by Programs Director - May 11, 2017 | No Comments

Hosted at the Union Club of BC on May 4th and 5th, our Professional Development Conference was a smash success! We had speakers from all over the globe share their knowledge with our project management community.

We heard from Alan Mallory, who set a world record by being part of the first family of four to reach the summit of Mount Everest. His inspiring talk took us through his family’s journey and the huge amount of planning this project took, the risk mitigation strategies they employed and their ‘on-the-fly’ adjustments to the plan as their journey progressed. An inspiring talk that took us all to a place we may never see on our own and taught us that there is no limit to the value the teachings of the PMBoK afford us.

You can contact Alan directly if you’d like his slide deck

We heard from Calgary Homicide Detectives Colum & Mike Cavilla who use Agile Project Management in their investigations. With over 100 investigations under belts, they took us through an actual investigation and showed us what it takes to catch the bad guy. Audience members were encouraged to participate as if the investigation were happening in situ.

Due to the sensitive nature of their presentation, Colum & Mike are unable to share their presentation.

The Marshmallow Challenge put everyone’s team work skills to the test in a competition to build the tallest structure using only spaghetti, tape and the crowning marshmallow. The winning structure was 39” tall! Great work!

We finished off Day 1 with Cindy Margules from Texas who taught us how to communicate with clarity and efficiency while relating these similar mistakes made every day to similar events aboard the Titanic which inevitably lead to its demise.

Access Cindy’s presentation here


Day 2 was jam-packed with speakers that included the CIO from BC Ferries, Erwin Martinez, speaking about the Trust Model of PM Time Management, Kristine Hayes Munson who taught us about techniques to influence stakeholders at any level in an organization and Jamal Moustafaev who spoke about delivering exception project results regardless of the project.

Access Erwin’s presentation here, Kristine’s presentation here and Jamal’s presentation here.

Day 2 also included our furthest travelled speaker, Kimmo Kumpulainen from Finland who spoke about a new way of implementing change, using a cyclical format instead of one static training session, as they have done with the Finnish School System making it one of the top educational systems in the world.

Access Kimmo’s presentation here.

We closed out Day 2 with an inspiring, and lively, presentation from Paul Pelletier leading us on a journey through workplace bullying and giving us all a toolkit of strategies for effectively dealing with a workplace terrorist.

Access Paul’s presentation here.


Our next event will be our May Chapter Dinner with Roberto Toledo from PMI and our AGM on May 24 in the Centennial Ballroom at the Union Club. Details here.
