New York, NY (PRWEB) April 14, 2012

Cheetah Learning (http://www.CheetahLearning.com), a member of the International Society of Sustainability Professionals (ISSP), will be in New York April 21-22 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center for the 2012 Green Festival, “the world’s premier event dedicated to sustainability, social justice and ecological balance.”

The Convention Center is at 655 West 34th Street. 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.

“To be a successful Project Manager, you also have to be good at creating sustainability projects,” says Cheetah’s CEO and founder Michelle LaBrosse, who noted that sustainability has replaced “maintainability and reliability,” the hot buttons when she was an Air Force officer in the 1980s.

“Sustainability is one of the ‘buzz words’ du jour,” observes LaBrosse. “You can’t pick up an article or turn on the news without hearing it.”

The Project Management Professionals (PMPs) at Cheetah Learning will be sharing their thoughts about sustainability and more at the 2012 Green Festival. Among them: The synergy that occurs when a Sustainability Professional gets Project Management Professional Certification and vice versa. The outcome: “The ability to competently and consistently lead sustainability projects.”

In 2008, the Project Management Institute (PMI) recognized Cheetah as Professional Development Provider of the Year for the significant contribution it made with its accelerated approach to teaching and doing project management.

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.

In recognition of her contributions, PMI selected LaBrosse as one of the 25 Most Influential Women in Project Management in the World. Her popular book, “Cheetah Project Management,” is available at http://www.cheetahlearning.com/LinkTracker/track.asp?id=253.
