The presentations happened during more than four hours, being very diverse and interesting. In spite of some technical problems at the beginning, that were solved soon, more than 80 professionals attended on-line that event.

The adaptability to our current situation and the need to communicate, learn and share is still alive. As a PMI Madrid Spain Chapter former president, it is an honour for me to observe how the Chapter activities never stop even with our pandemic difficulties. The passion and desire to move forward made a difference in this Congress where the volunteers’ work was clearly shown.

All the initiatives and projects are managed by a big group of volunteers. Because of the geographical dispersion and the collaboration with other Chapters, the PMI Madrid Spain Chapter communication and activities have been adapted more and more to the increased “virtual” demand.
