Some of the Featured Speakers:

Kevin Cullen, back by popular demand, is the President of Leadera Consulting Group.  He is an expert in the training and development of business leaders worldwide.  His full-day workshop will help project management professionals to articulate and communicate more effectively while his breakout sessions and luncheon keynote speech will focus on topics to help you find the "Sweet Spot" for Excellence: The Winning Combination of Leadership and Project Management.

Rick Gillis returns to present a one-day job search workshop: "Job!  3 Steps to Your Next."  Based on his new book of the same title, Rick will lead attendees through the process of taking a professional and personal inventory to prepare for all employment eventualities.  This exercise supports the use and creation of Rick's Accomplishments-Based resume format to make the hiring professional "like you" and to help you overcome the obstacle of resume filtering software used by virtually all major employers today.

Barbee Davis, PMP, PMI-ACP, works for PMI as a Global R.E.P. reviewer and also creates and manages special international projects.  She is a popular and much sought after speaker around the world.  Barbee will present a keynote speech on "Excellence: Chasing the Shifting Target."  In this keynote we'll look at the shift from defining excellence as merely meeting schedule, budget, and quality metrics.  Shifts in the consumer base, in technology, and in marketing strategy, plus the success of agile methods mean we must move out of our traditional project management sweet spot and adjust our project approach to chase the shifting target of excellence.

Joe Lukas, PMP, CCE, PE, will hold a full-day workshop on "Achieving Excellence in Managing Project Risks."  His jobs span engineering, manufacturing, construction, project controls, estimating, contracting and Portfolio, Program, and Project Management.  With over 35 published articles on various project management topics, Joe is a frequent guest speaker for companies and organization across the country.  Joe is Vice President for PMCentersUSA, a PMI Global Registered Education Provider and the 2006 PMI Professional Development Provider of the year.
We also have key executives from Foster Wheeler and Weatherford presenting in the Project Management from an Oil & Gas Perspective track, and expect speakers from other major oil companies to join our program as well.
