We're excited to announce that we are partnering with the PMI Chapters from Milwaukee, Madison and Northeast Wisconsin to bring you Virtual Professional Development Day on Tuesday, November 9, 2021!
This year's theme is "Step Up Your Game...with PMI". Project managers, agile team leaders, business leaders and team members all need to keep their skills sharp to compete and be successful in their careers. Our mini-PDD will give you an opportunity to Step Up Your Game in the areas of Business Communication, Design Thinking, Social Intelligence and Resilience Through Change. Sessions will be recorded so you can watch/re-watch the presentations after the event.
Networking is a major component of PDD, as our event will bring together members from 3 Wisconsin chapters. The virtual platform provides networking rooms where you can join and engage other attendees in conversations and questions about your challenges, suggestions, or perhaps a story. You can check out the highlights below!
