Future in Focus

For many, the toughest leadership test is now looming: how to thrive in an environment where world events like the pandemic and national unrest has affected the way we operate. From surviving to thriving in this new normal environment PMI Honolulu Chapter is proud to offer speakers and sessions at this year’s virtual Professional Development Days that will equip attendees with resolve, resilience, and re-imagination as we all focus on the future.

As organizations in Hawaii consider how to return from the changes inflicted by world events, it is critical for individuals to find their way in this new normal.  Those who step up their game will be better off and far more ready to confront the challenges—and opportunities—of the new normal than those who do not. 

Join us at this year’s PMI Honolulu PDD on Friday, October 30, 2020 to learn, network put our Future in Focus together!
