A Learning Experience

The Way of the Project Manager is also the way of lifelong learning and to that end I will be going to the PMI Netherlands Summit on Thursday, June 13th 2013, as part of the “blog team”. 

The conference is being organized by the PMI Netherlands Chapter and CKC Seminars in Zeist, the Netherlands and is being aimed at Project, Program and Portfolio professionals.  

The central theme of the event is: “A one day learning experience that will last for years” so I am very much looking forward to it, not to mention the chance to visit the Netherlands again.

The organizers say that an inspiring program is guaranteed, with keynote sessions by international thought leaders, expert insights and lessons learned from experienced project practitioners. 

The keynote speakers are:
Cees Pijs, President, PMI Netherlands Chapter
Dr. Lynn Crawford, Professor of Project Management, Bond University, Australia, Director, Human Systems International Limited
Dr. Terry Cooke-Davies, International Group Chairman, Human Systems, Visiting Research fellow, Cranfield University
Joseph F. Norton: Senior Vice President, Deputy CIO and Head of IT Infrastructure & Operations, Royal Philips, Member, PMI Executive Council, Chicago
Jacques Dunselman, Program Manager & Principal Consultant, Capgemini

Full details and a downloadable brochure are available from the PMI Netherlands web site at:

I look forward to meeting up with fellow project management practitioners (and bloggers) at the event so do let me know if you are going (and if you would like to meet up for a beer afterwards).
