Speaking Engagements on track for 2012
I’ve been making more of an effort to make myself available for speaking engagements in the project management community. In January I had the privilege of addressing the Microsoft Project Users Group members on their global call and talked about how to create an EPM deployment plan for Microsoft Project Server. I had a great evening also at the PMI Maine chapter in Portland, ME talking about some of the challenges in deploying enterprise project management.
I’m trying to keep the calendar here on EPM Guidance up to date. You can click on the Calendar at any time to see upcoming speaking engagements and, if you are interested in getting me onto your association’s schedule, you can visit my Speaker’s site at www.vandersluis.name.
