PMI Region 3 Leadership Summit – Day 2

PMI Region 3 Leadership Summit Closing Keynote - Dr. John A. Estrella, CMC, PMP
Halina St. James kicked off the second day with her presentation on The Power of You. We learned how to apply the Talkitout® technique and the Power of Story (facts tell—but stories sell) to improve our presentation skills.

Felix Moshkovich, CMC, PMP, presented PMI Southern Ontario Chapter’s (PMI-SOC) mentoring program and Michael Frenette, PMP, introduced us to the Technology Member Advisory Group.

In the afternoon, George Cescon, PMP, and his colleagues shared their experience at PMI Lakeshore on how to better serve the members. Abbas Alimorad and Danelle Peddell, PMP, of PMI South Western Ontario Chapter showed us how to deal with different cultures on the board. I delivered the closing keynote on social networking strategy and how it was implemented at PMI-SOC.

Overall, the entire leadership conference was awesome! We learned a lot about the local culture too.

PMI Region 3 Leadership Summit – Day 1

PMI Region 3 Leadership Summit
A bag piper led the PMI Region 3 Leadership Summit Project Team and the PMI Nova Scotia Chapter Board Members into the room to kick off the event. There were about 80 leaders in attendance representing 18 of the 19 chapters in Northeast North America.

Shortly after the welcome remarks, Michael Hughes did an excellent job in presenting Networking and the New Reality. Michael showed us how to utilize networking, the new economy currency, as a business strategy.

In the afternoon, Mark Langley, PMI’s EVP and COO, gave us an update on what’s happening at PMI. Take a look at the latest PMI Pulse Surveys for more information.

I have been to other PMI Leadership Institute Meetings (North America and EMEA) and I really like the intimate setting of a smaller group at the PMI Region 3 Leadership Summit.

PMI Region 3 Summit Update

Theodore Tugboat
I am currently in Halifax to attend the Project Management Institute (PMI) Region 3 Summit where we are expecting PMI component leaders and staff from Northeast North America to be in attendance. The theme for this year is The Power of Connections.

Michael Hughes will present the opening keynote titled Networking and the New Reality. Over the next two days, there will be various sessions including What’s Happening at PMI by Mark Langley, PMI’s EVP and COO. Halina St. James will present The Power of You and I will present the closing keynote on Social Networking Strategy.

But, before all of that serious stuff happen, I was able to get a picture of Theodore Tugboat at Murphy’s on the Water! Theodore Too is a 65’ replica from the award-winning children’s television series Theodore Tugboat.
