Every year, the holidays roll around. Every year they drip with tradition. And every year, they bring surprises. As surely as Aunt Edna is destined to share the story of you at age 4 in her high heels, some of those surprises can be expected. The same can be said of our projects! On every project, there are traditions we come to expect. Forgotten forms. Last-minute leave requests. And yet, with the same degree of certainty that we have that someone will burn the dinner rolls--we can foresee the risks. In this engaging (and timely) presentation, Carl Pritchard (PMP, PMI-RMP, and PMI award-winner) explains how we can leverage that foresight into better project management and a smoother holiday season (and smoother projects). He also takes a look at the opportunity perspective of risk, and how we may be far better off if we at least pretend to believe in Santa Claus (Carl does, by the way).

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).
