  1. I beleive that the sister partner can learn from the Project Management Toastmasters Club (PMTMC). Here are some teachings it can provide:

    * how to enhance communication, leadership and project management skills in individuals by leveraging a proven educational program and the learn-by-doing principle
    * how to create, promote and foster a supportive and nurturing environment that is conducive to the learning process, so that individuals develop self-confidence and skills to become effective public speakers and communicators, more efficient leaders and better project management practitioners
    * how to use evaluation, feedback and constructive criticism to improve communication and leadership skills in individuals
    * how to leverage mentoring, performance appraisal and structured learning programs (e.g. PM Forum)to sharpen their communication, leadership and project management competencies.
    * how to develop vision and mission and run a not-for-profit organization and operate it to achieve success and growth

    Hope this suffices to enable the start of a sister city program for the PMTMC.

    Hi Peter,

    It’s great to hear that you’re commemorating International Project Management Day again this year.

    Your event sounds well planned out.

    If I hear from a neighboring country, I will certainly partner you together. I do have an International Project Management Toastmasters group that is planning an event for November 1st in Toronto that I might suggest you partner with in which you can promote your events asynchronously. How do you feel about that?

    Can you please forward me your logo for our website and webpage.

    Best regards,

    Laura Fraser
    IPM Day Sister City Director
