IIL's E. LaVerne Johnson said of the IPM Day Virtual Event, "15,000 people attended our IPM Day 2010 event, and this year we expect an audience of at least twice that number. We are very excited to have our new business unit IIL Media produce top quality, high-definition videos for our program this year." When asked about the importance of the project management profession, she responded, "Two decades ago when I founded IIL, project management was a narrowly defined career path. Now, it has expanded to impact all aspects of people's lives… all over the world. Project discipline and project thinking are critical knowledge areas for most people in the job market today, regardless of whether they are in marketing or finance, sales or risk management, healthcare or construction."
