The largest annual gathering of the project management community of the Rocky Mountain West, the full day Symposium offers world-class speakers, networking with 1,500 attendees and up to 18 Professional Development Units (PDUs).

Anne Loehr, named the “Generational Guru” by the Washington Post, will speak on “The Future of Work in the Digital Age.” She will outline strategy and best practices to prepare for megatrends, how to survive and thrive despite the big changes coming to the American workforce, and factors affecting the workforce, such as women leaving the corporate world to start their own businesses.
Amy Vetter, author of “Business, Balance & Bliss: How the B3 Method Can Transform Your Career and Life,” will speak to “The Connected Leader: Creating an Engaged Company Culture One Employee at a Time in the Digital Age,” focusing on the need to create strong human connections during this era of technological revolution. She will address how habits and patterns learned early in life affect us into adulthood and steps to break the patterns that don’t serve us today, plus how to initiate communities of support in the workplace to achieve best results for the organization.
Beth Ziesenis will speak on “Powered Productivity: Super Tech Tools to Get Stuff Done,” a research based look at common productivity problems and technology to solve them. She will address how to automate tasks and save time with shortcuts and background functions, stay safe online, streamline communication to avoid email overload, and discover tech tips and tricks to increase efficiency. Ziesenis will inspire on how to filter through thousands of apps, gadgets, widgets and doodads for finding the ideal free and bargain technology tools for work and home.
