      Thank you Tamara and a special thanks to all of the project managers in your organization. The idea of having a “Project Manager of the year” is outstanding. I can see your organization values the contributions of its project managers.

        Peter Fisher advised me that “We’ll be having donuts and sharing PM experiences at Air Products in Allentown, PA!. Thanks Peter. Small, informal sessions like this are an excellent way to network, share ideas, and say thanks.

          Rich Maltzman PMP, at Alcatel Lucent advised me that:

          This is our 8th Annual IPM Day, we get about 1,000 attendees. Speakers are from all over the world, and from inside and outside of the company. The session kicks off with a keynote from our leadership, acknowledging the importance of the discipline and recognizing the thousands of PMs in the company.

          This is the first year we have done this fully virtual, with all of the sessions being recorded in advance and available 24×7 for attendees following IPM Day.
