About the Presentation

Krav Maga literally translated means “contact combat” – this exciting, motivating and fun presentation will connect the most proven self defense system in the world with elevating leadership capacity. Managing and leading projects can be extremely difficult and almost feel like we need to know martial arts to just survive (or, sometimes we may even wish we could give a good “smack” to someone getting in the way of our project running smoothly, on time, within cost and scope requirements.) While we can’t touch anyone for real, we can learn more about leadership when analyzing the only proven “martial” arts system designed to stop someone that is willing to die to kill you.

About the Speakers

Dave Gerber

Synergy Development and Training

Dave has owned his private practice, Synergy Development and Training, for over ten years and  has traveled the country to work with thousands of leaders, project managers, specialists and their teams in organizations such as NASA, SAIC, PMI, EPA, ManTech, Dominion Power, BAE Systems, Government agencies, the Intelligence communities and many, many more.  He has authored three books on conflict and leadership with a recent project release of a chapter written in a book with Ken Blanchard and Deepak Chopra.  Dave is the Leadership Program Director for AKMI.  He has been an adjunct professor, interviewed for television/radio and has varied personal experiences that have been turned into best practices and support for clients of all kinds, from all backgrounds.

For over 15 years Dave has been working with senior leaders to design, customize and “roll out” professional development coaching, training, consulting, facilitation, mediation, negotiation and other valuable efforts that produce immediate ROI for actual participants, as well as informal and formally connected stakeholders.  He has been brought in pro-actively to design large programs, workshops, single and multi-day trainings, motivational keynote speaking engagements and small programs which themselves leave audiences with great impact…or after a negative action has happened in the workplace.  From his original sand film, his humor, to his instantly engaging style and ability to connect with people, he simplifies the more sophisticated concepts and helps to create eye-opening distinctions that lead to better decision making and action…Dave is great to work with!

Dave also has an impressive formal, educational background which includes a bachelor’s degree from Ithaca College in Sociology, a Master’s   in Education from Saint Joseph’s University, and ten post-graduate certificates from Georgetown University, George Mason’s Northern Virginia Mediation Services, Notre Dame and Villanova in subjects such as senior executive leadership, leadership coaching, conflict, negotiations and more.  He is qualified to administer and interpret the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Conflict Dynamics Profile (CDP), The Leadership Circle Profile (TLCP), the Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI), Reversal Theory, PMAI and the Klein Group Indicator.  

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).
