August 17th TOPIC:      

"Can You Hear Me Now?" - Project Communication Lessons from a Non-Project Organization

Topic Summary: Review of Amstead Rail's Greenville facility renovation and relocation project. Project overview, lessons learned and challanges faced by an organization that didn’t have a traditional project management history or culture.

Bio: John Blessing is currently the Director of Operations at Amsted Rail’s Greenville facility, manufacturing engineered brake and material-handling systems for freight rail vehicles. His entire career has been in the railroad industry and has spanned a variety of functional roles; however, his rail industry foundation came from 7 years as a project manager at Wabtec Corporation, managing rolling stock projects in Asia, Europe and on many of the major subway systems of the United States. When he’s not working on trains, he is passionate about skiing with friends and mentoring young people through the Mentor Greenville organization. John, his wife, Beth, and their two redheaded teenagers all call Downtown Greenville home.
