Long week, but great week. I had the good fortune of meeting with members of the PMI Houston organization during their annual conference at the GRB in Houston. This was a super group of folks. I met people from all walks of the certified project management world.
After three very intense days of workshops, panels, groups, and breakouts, it seems the attendees went home with renewed energy.
Topics of my two days of speaking centered on networking and interviewing skills; lots of debate and reaction to the key topics (this is a good thing). I often feel it is difficult to cover so much ground in so little time as is afforded by these seminar-type formats. Nonetheless we soldiered on! I hope folks got the key points:
- Networking requires giving first by getting involved.
- Interviewing needs to be a sales oriented transaction, but it should be a high trust sales effort, not a used car approach.
BTW, goodbye to April. We shall miss you until next year.
