Where has your personal learning path taken you in the last few years? What do you know today that you didn’t know 5 years ago? What did you know then that isn’t as relevant today? Making the decision to learn something new and seeing it through is one of life’s oldest projects to be managed. While deciding what to learn can be an arduous task, choosing not to keep learning is one of the bigger mistakes many make as they grow older. This talk on the power of taking risks, the potential to get hurt and the rewards of defining your personal learning path can help you lead a more interesting, more rewarding and more enjoyable life.

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).
