New York, NY (PRWEB) March 14, 2012
Cheetah Learning (http://www.CheetahLearning.com) will be among the featured vendors at the 2012 Green Festival, known as “the world’s premier event dedicated to sustainability, social justice and ecological balance,” which takes place April 21-22 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
The Convention Center is at 655 West 34th Street in New York. The Festival takes place Saturday, April 21, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Sunday, April 22, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tickets at the door are $15 per day or $25 for a two-day pass. Cheetah Learning will be at Booth 710.
Cheetah Learning is a member of the International Society of Sustainability Professionals (ISSP), “a non-profit, member-driven association for professionals who are committed to making sustainability standard practice.” Members share resources and best practices, and develop themselves professionally. Cheetah was a featured vendor at the ISSP Conference in Portland, OR.
“Sustainability is one of the ‘buzz words’ du jour,” says Michelle LaBrosse, CEO and founder of Cheetah Learning. “You can’t pick up an article or turn on the news without hearing it. So, I got to thinking about what sustainability means on an individual level – not from a purely ecological perspective but from a humanistic perspective.”
“Ecologically, sustainability is about biological systems remaining diverse and productive over time,” LaBrosse explained. “For human beings, it is about the potential for long-term maintenance of our own well-being.”
The Project Management Professionals (PMPs) at Cheetah Learning will be sharing those thoughts and more at the 2012 Green Festival. Among them: The synergy that occurs when a Sustainability Professional gets Project Management Professional Certification. The outcome: “The ability to competently and consistently lead sustainability projects."

Cheetah Learning has been documented as having the highest audited continuous pass rate on the PMP exam for 10 years. In 2008, the Project Management Institute (PMI) recognized Cheetah as Professional Development Provider of the Year.
LaBrosse, a single mother of two, started Cheetah from scratch and grew it into a multi-million dollar powerhouse in the Project Management education field, a competitive arena with 1,600 providers who are PMI registered. Her book, “Cheetah Project Management,” is available at http://www.cheetahlearning.com/LinkTracker/track.asp?id=242.
