XIX PMI Madrid Annual Congress – “Back to Networking” held on November 17, 2022 in Madrid

I was pleasantly surprised by the attendance and massive participation in the XIX Annual Congress of Project Managers on “the Return to Networking”, organized by the PMI Madrid Chapter. For the Board of Directors of the PMI Madrid Chapter, face-to-face professional relationships, those relationships that unite us, are the basis for growth and sustainability.

The PMI Madrid Chapter thanked the speakers for the effort and dedication to attend and prepare their papers, the participants in the 180-second Challenge for their inspiring interventions (some decided on the fly during the Congress). This PMI Chapter thanked the attendees in person for their warm participation, the online attendees for their comments, the volunteers who have left their skin in preparing it, our suppliers and so many people involved in making this go well.

The Congress was opened by President Jesús Vázquez González, who introduced their Director of Events, organizer and moderator of the Congress, Francisco Javier Díaz Bermudez.

The first presentation on “networking at the beginning of the professional career” was given by Gregorio Robles and Micael Gallego from the Rey Juan Carlos University, moderated by Mr. Francisco Javier Díaz.

The successful 180-second “Challenge” was presented by Laura Jiménez Barreto and Manuel Ancizu; the Contest for online attendees was directed by Bernardo Baiz.
