    ROCHESTER, MINN. – The Rochester-La Crosse Chapter of Project Management Institute (PMI) and Rochester Community and Technical College will hold its annual Project Conference Friday, March 8, 2019, at Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, Minn. More than 200 individuals interested in the project management profession are expected to attend the seventh annual conference.

    This year’s “Be a Champion of Change” themed event – sponsored by Trissential, LLC – will focus on three tracks: Leadership, Technical Project Management Skills and Strategic and Business Management. Conference keynote speakers include:
    • Chris Heeter, MeetingsNet Top Ten Speaker of 2014 and highest rated speaker of Professional Internationals 2014 World Education Congress, works as a wilderness guide and a professional speaker. She aids a diverse array of teams (both human and canine). Her approach to diversity not only helps minimize assumptions, but also helps recognize and call out the individual talent that helps organizations thrive and grow.
    • Jack Stahlman, a regular contributor to The Huffington Post, currently residing in St. Paul, Minnesota, draws on his experiences as an actor, producer, director and of course – waiter, in Los Angeles, California to entertain and inform audiences. His closing keynote presentation “The Intangible It of Change Management,” will help attendees find ways to improve business relationships and embrace change.
    The conference will gather project management (PM), business analyst (BA) and related professionals to increase their project management knowledge and skills and network with regional industry leaders.
    • Find your inspiration from speakers with expertise and passion. Interact and learn what they've done to achieve success -- then take their lead to motivate yourself toward action.
    • Stay current and relevant by learning the latest trends and best practices, including which failed strategies and tactics to avoid.
    • Increase your visibility by networking with experts and key influencers. Share your knowledge and ideas with others to not only give back and advocate, but to become an expert yourself.
    • Prepare for your future: PMI research tells us that organizations are seeking added skills in leadership and business intelligence, as well as PM and BA technical skills
