gantthead is once again excited to bring you our annual virtual conference and exhibition on Thursday, May 19, 2011. It’s your opportunity to learn, network, earn PDUs and gain valuable knowledge all from the comfort of your home, office-or home office.
With today’s tight budgets, PMXPO 2011 is a fantastic way to get the trade show experience with none of the trade show expense. You’ll have the same interaction with experts, peers and solution providers, the same educational opportunities and the same professional networking capability, all within typical work hours, and all completely free.
In five sessions-plus an exciting keynote presentation-we’ll offer overviews of common PPM and PMO issues with valuable take-away materials, including templates, checklists, project plans and presentations that you can modify and use in your own practice.
Keynote Address: THE PASSIONATE PROJECT MANAGER
Ric O’Barry, Producer: The Cove, Founder: The Dolphin Project
Not all projects are life and death…they just seem that way. For Ric O’Barry, founder of The Dolphin Project and producer of the Oscar-winning documentary The Cove, projects are very much life and death. Not just for his career or the future of his company, but for an entire species of intelligent, complex and beautiful creatures who have been exploited and abused for little more than entertainment. Ric has gone to the literal ends of the Earth and pulled together world-class teams from industries as varied as pearl diving and movie effects to find success on his project. In this exclusive presentation, he’ll share his thoughts on inspiring others with his own passion and how to keep your project in perspective when your emotions might get in the way of progress.
