All in attendance will experience a full day with some of the best minds in academia and industry, sharing the latest thinking and practices in Project Management.

This open, honest, and funny program will look at how to embrace imperfection and choose resilience and growth over burnout and frustration. Closing keynote speaker, Ruth Pearce will speak on the topic “The Strategy of Character: Measuring and Aligning Character for Success!” Ruth’s closing will allow individuals discover what one can do to understand their character and the character of their stakeholders, how to be more engaged and how to play to the strengths of others.
