If you’ve been looking at the links on my weekly summaries of project management articles posted on the web, you’ve seen Samad Aidane’s name over a dozen times. Samad blogs at Guerilla Project Management, and publishes the podcasts of his interviews with some of the most influential educators and practitioners in the project management community. Now, he’s called on a number of his past interview subjects to assemble an on-line conference, the Project Management Telesummit. This will be a live, online “virtual” event where you will gain valuable insights from fifteen of today’s dynamic and engaging thought leaders in Project Management from the comfort of your home, office, or anywhere in between. The event will be held on March 8-10, 2011, and registration is now open.
The theme for this first edition of the Telesummit is “Thrive”. The focus is on the insights you need to stay ahead and thrive despite today’s challenging and turbulent business climate. You will learn winning strategies for delivering successful projects, expand your skill set, and network with other project management professionals, practitioners, and thought leaders.
Here’s a glimpse at some of the Telesummit speakers and topics:
- Rick Morris: Stop Playing Games! A Project Manager’s Guide to Successfully Navigating Organizational Politics

This is an ideal opportunity to get a conference experience without all the cost and hassle of travel (no hotel, rental car, or wasted time). Even better, all Telesummit presentations will be recorded. If you are unable to attend the live sessions as they happen, you can watch the recording when it is most convenient to you.
