About the Program
Carl Pritchard, PMP, PMI-RMP, EVP takes participants on a dynamic excursion through the language of risk, demystifying the practice with his engaging, humorous style. In this presentation, participants learn the four simple ways to improve their risk management practice without changing the way the organization does business. Instead, they learn how to improve overall risk management through the careful manipulation of the risk language. Carl takes you through your risk fears, dealing with them through improved clarity of the risk discussion and consistency in how the risk language is applied. You'll learn how to challenge poorly stated risks to bring to light the real concerns that plague your organization's projects. And you'll identify ways to build risk alliances and to get others to support you in your risk management practice.

As you enter Winchester past the Nissan Dealership, continue over I-81. Just past I-81 Hwy 50 will split - take the split to the right (Millwood Avenue) toward the University and Halpin Harrison Hall will be a few blocks up on the right hand side, across the street from the Sheetz gas station.
From Route 7
Take route 7 into town (over I-81) to Pleasant Valley Avenue. Take a left on Pleasant Valley Avenue and go about 1 mile (past the funeral home and Jim Barnett park on the left). About 250 yards before the intersection of Millwood Avenue and Pleasant Valley there is an entrance on the left to the parking lot of Halpin Harrison Hall. If you miss this you can proceed to Millwood Avenue and take a left and access the parking lot from Millwood Avenue.
