Mental Flexibility, Thrive or Survive

Explore your mental boundaries.

A rational adventure of your consciousness and subconsciousness.

In this workshop, we will look at our thinking process, identify our boundaries and attempt to push these boundaries by participating in fun activities. Stepping out of our boundaries help us become more perceptive and understanding of other people who do not function like us. The awareness and appreciation of our differences increase our ability to interact positively and constructively with others.

About the Speaker

Martine Cantrel

Martine has 28-year experience as a project manager, consultant and business owner, and 19 years as a Learning Tree instructor. She holds a degree in International Business from a French university and has the PMP and PMI-ACP certifications.

As part of an international engineering team, she evaluated project feasibility and managed the implementation of an import/export logistic platform for Alcatel and managed projects for the construction of waste-to-energy conversion plants for Babcock/CNIM. She has also worked pro bono for humanitarian organizations managing projects targeted at educating street children.

Upon moving to the United States 20 years ago, she founded an IT consulting company, which is currently managing projects using the Agile project management techniques for projects ranging from Web applications, to cloud migrations, to organizational digital transformation. It is through her consulting company that she started to teach for Learning Tree International.

Because of the variety of projects, she has managed, her international exposure and the ability to speak four languages, she brings a colorful palette of extraordinary examples to her courses, to illustrate project management concepts and to help learners grasp and retrain the related theories.

Lately, Martine has been busy using modern tools for online, interactive training, videos and team collaboration. She likes to emphasize that by keeping up with current technologies and trends and always updating her skills, you can trust her to deliver maximum value for your training investment.

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.
