About the Presentation
There will be times in nearly all of our professional lives when we find ourselves at a crossroads.
Too often, we tend to feel that we are the sum of all that we have done and nothing more. We are who we are and it is what it is.
This presentation will suggest that we can use such opportunities – those that come about due to a planned or even an unexpected change in job status – to explore what really makes us tick and consider how we can add the most value to our employer while satisfying our most significant professional and personal passions.

About the Monthly Dinner Meetings
The PMIWDC Monthly Dinner Meetings are held at the Sheraton Tysons (8661 Leesburg Pike, Tysons, VA 22182), typically on the second Tuesday of each month (subject to change due to holidays and venue/speaker availability). Members and non-members are welcome to join us for the best speakers and networking the Washington, DC area has to offer.
The presentations are educational and informative to those professionals operating in the field of project management and functioning in leadership roles in industry and government. It is also of great value to those looking to step into the field of Project Management and begin their certification process. Each event will present specific learning points focusing on building a talent triangle of technical, leadership, and strategic and business management skills, unique to the presenter's area of expertise and the subject matter discussed while directly relating to improving the practice of managing projects and leading others. At each Monthly Chapter Event certified PMPs can earn 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU).
