About the PresentationStruggling to make changes at work or convince management to take action? Ready to challenge conventional thinking or introduce a new idea, but worried about being viewed as a troublemaker or getting in way over your head? Rebels At Work provides concrete ideas, techniques and advice on how to refine your thinking, improve your approach to work, and manage yourself so you can achieve more and stay sane and optimistic in the process. Authors Lois Kelly and Carmen Medina -- successful and occasionally wildly unsuccessful rebels themselves, Lois at marketing agencies, Carmen at the CIA -- reveal ways to navigate corporate politics, frame and communicate ideas, deal with controversy, avoid common mistakes, and manage yourself so you know when and how to keep pushing and when to quit.

About the Crystal City Dinner Meetings
PMIWDC holds dinner meetings periodically in Crystal City to provide an alternate metro-accessible location for those who can not attend the Fairview Park dinner meetings.
PMIWDC's Monthly Dinner meetings are held monthly in either the Fairview Park Marriott location or the alternate Crystal City location. Members and Non-Members are welcome to join us for the best speakers and networking the Washington DC area has to offer.
The presentations delivered before (PM Tools) and after (Keynotes) monthly dinner meetings are educational and informative to those professionals operating in the field of project management and functioning in leadership roles in industry and government. Each event will present specific learning points, 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. Both the PM Tools session and the monthly dinner meeting are worth 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU) each to certified PMPs.
If this will be your first time attending a dinner meeting, be sure to read about the event schedule, costs, and cancellation policies.
