Speaking Engagements, PMI


Yep – that’s me giving an in-person talk at a project management event last year.  I really enjoy getting the chance to give a short course or even a symposium talk when I can.  It’s great to connect directly with others who have the same interests.  This year there will be some changes.  A couple of my upcoming speaking engagements have shifted from in-person events into virtual conferences including: The Minnesota Chapter of the Project…

As expected, I have more changes to report on speaking engagements that I had been asked to speak at have been postponed or changed. The ProjectWorld / Business Analyst World show scheduled for late May in Toronto been rescheduled to December 14-17.  My talk there will be rescheduled to somewhere within those dates.

I’m looking forward to being back in Dallas next week.  On Tuesday, May 21st, I will be speaking at the 13th Annual UT Dallas Project Management Symposium at the UT Dallas Campus.  This is a big event and I’m delighted to have been asked to speak there.  My topic is “Managing Resource Risk in an Uncertain World”.  If you plan to attend the conference, please make sure to say hello.

I’m very much looking forward to speaking at the Eastern Iowa chapter of the PMI in Cedar Rapids during their Professional Development Day event on Friday, October 20th.  We’ll be talking about how to increase resource capacity; one of my favorite topics. For those who are attending the event, please make sure to say hello.  For those interested in the PMI Eastern Iowa event, visit

Next week I’ll have the pleasure of visiting the Minneapolis/St-Paul area to speak at the Minnesota chapter of the PMI as they host their Professional Development Days event.  I’ve been asked to speak on two subjects and I’m only too happy to do so.  On Wednesday, September 14th I’ll be talking about Creating Business Prioritization for Projects and Portfolios where we’ll discuss how creating priorities for our projects is more about understanding our business imperatives than it is…

HMS Software’s President, Chris Vandersluis will be speaking once again at the Project Management Institute’s Global Congress. This year it’s in Phoenix Arizona at the end of October. Mr. Vandersluis’s topic this year is “Applying Agile Methodology to non-software Enterprise Projects”. If you will be attending the 2014 Global Congress, you will find information on the agenda and Mr. Vandersluis’ presentation at: PMI® Global Congress 2014—North America.
