Winning at Westchester PMI 2010 PDD
Here I am with Michelle LaBrosse (of Cheetah Learning), who started the day off right with a high-energy keynote presentation that had the audience roaring in laughter. She was kind enough to autograph my copy of "Cheetah Negotiations", which now has special meaning to me.
During the day, I learned about the IBM computer (Watson) that will compete on Jeopardy in 2011, and am digesting my very filled notepad. It is fascinating to hear about project problems on unconventional projects. When was the last time you developed a computer that takes in written natural language, and outputs through a plunger to operate a buzzer?
R. Camperl Bull closed off the day with a presentation of Project Management Leadership. Guess who is responsible for leadership on your projects? (Don't ask me for a prize - it is a trick question).
As an experienced speaker and Toastmaster, I can't help but wonder what life would be like if we could get presenters to stop using 6 point font on PowerPoint slides.
I am glad that I made the trip to Elmsford for the 2010 Westchester PMI PDD. Brenda Horton and David Morgen made David Ingram and I feel very welcome and the event was superbly organized.
