Special Guest, Maureen Staiano
Maureen has an interactive session planned for our first Express Chapter Meeting. Come to network and learn about your conflict resolution style. Gain an understanding of how to be more effective at resolving conflicts.
While conflict is often viewed as a negative, as a Project Manager it is also an opportunity to develop as a professional and gain respect among your peers, project teams and stakeholders. In this fast paced, interactive workshop, we will examine reasons conflicts occur and how conflict can be beneficial.
PMI Mass Bay is piloting a new program in November 2017. This is similar to our traditional Chapter Meeting programming, with a few changes.
Express Chapter Meetings will be held in casual venues and do not include dinner, hence the $10.00 registration.
We will start promptly at 5:30pm for networking at the bar and then move downstairs to the Club at 6:00pm for this 1 hour event.
Meetings start and end early enough to allow our members the option of networking at the bar or going out to dinner after. This will also allow people traveling a distance to catch an earlier train home.
