    Presentation Description:  The uncertainties of the world business economy, rapidly changing technology, and the intensifying focus on sustainability has driven many organizations to seek highly qualified and competent people to manage those projects. These driving factors require today’s project managers to accept and adapt to change, lead diverse teams, act as ambassadors for their organizations and deal with a multitude of challenging project stakeholders. This presentation addresses the importance of the professional project manager in today’s business environment and the need for the project manager to continually enhance existing skills, adapt to a changing environment, and become a “go to” person in the organization. Emphasis is placed on understanding the business needs of an organization, clearly and visibly creating value from a client and supplier viewpoint, and continually developing and managing personal brand.
