How The PMPs of Today are Helping The PMPs of Tomorrow

PMPs of Today Helping PMPs of Tomorrow

I’ve been a member of PMI for as long as I can remember, but I’ve never really got involved in the community as such. If I’m brutally honest, I thought it would be boring and, combined with a somewhat nomadic 15 years, various project commitments and a sprinkle of obligatory life drama… it was never really a priority, sorry to say.

This year, that all changed.

In May, I attended PMI’s Leadership Institute Meeting EMEA (LIM) in Barcelona. I was blown away by a couple of things. Firstly by my own total mis-judgement of perceived boredom, and secondly by the deeply authentic ‘community-feeling’ that exists within the PMI project management community (I wrote about here on LinkedIn “The we in PMI” if you’re interested).

I consider building communities as one of my key skills; however, I’ve never felt a feeling of community like this within the project management arena before… now I have, and I like it… a lot!  So much so that I’m now involved with the UK PMI Chapter’s Strategy Execution PowerTalks and I’ll be attending the North American LIM and PMI Global Congress in San Diego this month, then off to Athens in October for the PMI Region 8 meeting and in November back to San Diego for the PMO Symposium.

Communities Taking Project Management to the Next Level

Two months after attending the LIM in May, I launched CourseConductor.com. It’s a new customer review website that takes away all the pain we feel when looking for project management courses, i.e. the pain of having to spend hours comparing courses on many different training provider websites, and still not knowing how good the training will be before we buy it.

CourseConductor.com is like TripAdvisor, but for project management training. We make it really easy to find the best courses by using customer reviews written by people we trust – fellow professionals. After all, we all read customer reviews before booking hotels and restaurants… now we can do the same before booking our professional training.

When you write a course review on CourseConductor.com three great things happen:

  • You elevate your professional voice: by publically declaring your experience you are elevating your own professional voice to your connections.
  • You help your fellow professionals: you are helping fellow professionals find great courses and helping them make more confident course purchasing decisions.
  • You positively influence our planet: Course Conductor’s social sustainability model means that for every course review posted, we clean a gallon of infected school water, because we are committed to helping young people fulfill their education potential.
