About the Event
Project managers get wrapped up in:
- becoming a certified PMP
- managing the stress of the job
- pleasing their home lives (spouse, kids, well-being)
- leveraging their credentials (making more $)
That happened to using this to live better? Listen to the lessons learned from an author and PMP who recently presented to eskimos in Anchorage Alaska, as well as Cubans in South Florida on strategies to deal with it all.

About the Speaker
Chris Daniel, The Consultant in Jeans, is the founder of Regroup Consulting, a performance consulting firm, based in Waldorf, MD. Daniel is originally from Thomaston, GA, population 10,000 (on Thanksgiving). As a shy braniac, he graduated high school to attend Georgia Southern University, where he felt his talents were in art and design. After declaring Print Management as a major and African-American studies as a minor, Daniel started on his journey to design professional sports jerseys for a living. Always the behind-the-scenes type, Chris was left in a conundrum his junior year! He’d waited until the last minute to register for fall classes and only had two elective to choose from to graduate on time: Soccer and Public Speaking.
Reluctantly, he registered for both, and joined the classes. HE liked soccer better than he expected. It was an 8am class, so the exercise was great that early in the morning. However, on the first day of Public Speaking 101, the instructor entered the room of 60 students saying: "Ok class, today we're going to do 3-minute improvs from the stage. Mr. Daniel, you're first!"
Upon graduation in 2001, Chris was recruited by the US Gov't Printing Office's Outstanding Scholar Program. He quickly climbed the success ladder and became Assoc. Director of GPO University in his nine-year stint at the agency, traveling the country to consult and train other agencies on best practices. He received certifications in Project Management and Instructional Design, and a Green Belt in Six Sigma, among several certificates in executive leadership from the National Leadership Institute, The Brookings Institution, and Learning Tree International.
Today, Daniel travels the country speaking, facilitating and coaching top performing executives. His engaging, humorous, yet accountable style has landed him projects with The National Science Foundation, Maryland Transit Authority, College of Southern Maryland, Anne Arundel Community College, Morgan State University, GW University, The Project Management Institute, Miami, Newark and LaGuardia International Airports. His debut book, Consult in Jeans, is available NOW!
About the Washington Circle Luncheons
PMIWDC's Washington Circle luncheons are a series of free brownbag luncheons hosted at 2201 G St, NW in Downtown DC. There are luncheons every fourth Wednesday of the month, unless posted otherwise.
This program series is made possible by the generous support of George Washington University School of Business, which offers a Master of Science in Project Management (MSPM) degree. The MSPM program is designed to meet the needs of working professionals who want to enhance their ability to integrate complex projects, motivate people, and achieve cost-effective results. With courses offered both on-campus and online, students have the flexibility to complete the degree from virtually anywhere.
Washington Circle luncheons are free and open to the public. Pre-registration is preferred, but walk-ins are welcome on a first-come, first-served basis.
