Organize any project like a Pro. Certified project manager, 20 years of experience, shows you how to expertly plan any project important to your work or life. Advance your career!

Methodology

My teaching method is akin to a TED talk: I incorporate project management concepts with personal stories from my projects . This makes the methodology much easier to understand for students. I also incorporate 'Collaboration' topics in my courses, which not many PM instructors do.

Background

I am a PhD level, certified technology project manager. I have implemented complex projects in the USA, Europe, Latin America and Asia, teaching hundreds of students at all levels: from new entrants into the profession to advanced certification. Project Management (PM) is a way of life: I am one of the cosmos' natural organizers.
