Did you miss the 2017 PMI Palmetto Symposium?

Navigating the Rough Waters of Project Management!

   Speakers included:

      Traci Duez

      Bill Fournet

      Dan Furlong

      Joe Little

On March 7th, 2017, over 200 project managers came together to learn, discuss, and network in order to improve our PM skills.  With some great modern day examples, Bill Fournet presented a contemporary look at today’s work culture and provided 10 rules for thriving in chaos. Joe Little then took us on a journey into the world of Agile and Agile-Adaptive planning and reinforced Bill’s focus on managers’ intent by reminding us to establish a clear vision that is compelling.


After lunch, we re-convened and heard from Dan Furlong who walked us through a practical example of how to herd cats (better known as simplifying complex decision making).  Ending the day, Traci Duez lightened the mood and hijacked our amygdala to help us understand what it means to lead Head First AND Heart First!


Some outstanding door prizes, great food, valuable networking, and 6.5 PDUs later, I believe we all found ourselves better equipped to lead projects in our sector.

 The 2017 PMI Palmetto Symposium has come and gone, but rest assured that the Palmetto Board has already begun work on the next Symposium, tentatively scheduled for March 6, 2018 at the TD Convention Center. If you’d like to be part of our great crew by volunteering for next year’s Symposium Team, and have the opportunity to earn PDU’s toward your PM certification, contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
